    To be perfectly honest I don't. I have never actually been able to use any of the homemade clothes I've been given.
    - stunk of cigarette smoked so got thrown out
    - made of wool which my kids won't wear
    - weren't true to size and already too small for my child
    - not well made and stitching coming apart

    Also I've often received handmade clothes bought while overseas in secret Santa and other similar occasions and while I know it's the thought that counts but I had stuck to or gone over the $30 limit for my SS and in return had received something falling apart bought handmade bought overseas for about $2.

    Love. I love handmade stuff especially kids clothes. As a PP says it usually costs a lot at markets!

    I really like handmade things. Especially for my daughter but some for my boys also. I'm biased though, I'm a crocheter so I think handmade is fantastic haha.

    It's unique and as long as it's not wool would be nice.
    My son and myself get rashes from the wool.
    And definitely sizing and know that it's something I would wear in a way I agree with moto.

    I love hand made stuff. I have a few blankets and headbands that have been handmade for DD by friends/family and I think they are so special because of the time and effort and skill that goes into them. We haven't received any handmade clothes yet but I'd feel the same about them!

    I love handmade stuff and I often give things I have made. People seem genuinely appreciative.

    I love them! I sew things like pencil rolls, little purses, tutu's, basic skirts and people seem to like them.

    Nothing like someone giving you something they've made themselves.

    yep I love hand made stuff

    if you think your sewing isnt quite up to more difficult clothing yet - then small gifts (bags, purses, basic skirts, doll clothes, cushion covers etc) are easy, gorgeous and kids love them
