I like to include a flashlight in my shoebox gifts if I can get a great deal.  This year I picked up a bunch for free at Harbor Freight with coupons!  But there is always the concern about battery life – and including a second set of batteries.

I searched around for a Hand Crank one (no battery) flashlight and found these:

Ikea Hand Crank FlashlightIKEA Hand Crank Flashlight for $4.99

(not sold online, only in stores)

I tried it out – it is a little bulky but works nice.

A little pricey at $4.99.


Then I found these at Amazon, a 4 pack for under $11 total:

BF 3LED Hand Pressing Flashlight Convenient 4 Pack Great for Outdoor Activities, Emergencies or Everyday Use. No Battery Required

  •  Works by cranking the handle with your hand
  •  Three powerful and super bright white LED

Description says:  “Crank the handle for about one minute it will give you approx. 30 minutes of non stop super bright white light-visible distance up to 5 meters.”

Or this one for just a little less money in red:

flashlightHand Crank Flashlight

then this one seems even less money in yellow:

Yellow 3 LED Hand Press No Battery Wind up Crank Camping Outdoor Flashlight Light Torch

Mark found these Hand Crank flashlights at Harbor Freight at 2 for $6.97.  harbor freight hand crank flashlight

$3.49 each OR use THIS 20% off coupon, good through Monday.

which would bring them down to $5.59 for 2, or $2.79 each.



tic tac toe board toy from 9-patch

Carol sewed up this great tic-tac-toe board and shared it on the Operation Christmas Child facebook page. 

It’s just a simple nine-patch (for you quilters out there – this is a great way to use up your UFO’s!).

She is using poker chips as the game pieces – and included instructions (they “might” not be able to read English, but perhaps can get it translated for them!)

Then she sewed up a cute drawstring bag to hold the game.

I LOVE this!

This would be perfect craft for craft groups.  You could even ask your local Quilt Group to get involved – I’m sure they have tons of unused nine-patch squares in their stash!


Purses made from Jean Pockets

Kay shared this fun and easy “Upcycled” craft with us!
“One of our church sewing groups is making these cute little purses.”
**Just take a pair of jeans — cut out the 2 back pockets.
Sew them together (the raw edges have already been folded under!
Add a strap.
Embellish with some yo-yo’s, rickrack, or something cute.**
I “upcycled” my daughter’s pants into totebags – here:
