My local creche is holding a trivia night, and they want parents to contribute items suitable for packs for a 1 year old boy and a 1 year old girl. Do whipup readers have any suggestions as to something handmade?

Readers let us know your suggestions for quick and simple gift ideas to make for 1 year old children – co-ordinated packs or perhaps a few sweet little things that just go nicely together – thinking caps on…

Our local Dollar Tree has onesies – they’re great for hand embroidery using Sublime Stitching patterns
