I give away everything I make. I've made toys for charity, and I've gifted to my friends and relatives sweaters and shawls and baby items. I love giving handmade items to people who appreciate them.

God Bless you for giving these. Many hearts will feel lighter for this gift.
They are all lovely and will remain in your heart.

I get that way when giving my knitted items away too! I wonder to myself if that person will wear whatever, do they really like it, did I do the best job that I could on it?

We are all different, but I really enjoy "getting rid" of the things I make. I like to get them out of my sight (and house). It makes me feel as if I did something good and hope that someone is really enjoying them.

I hope I am not alone in this. I took some of the knitted toys to Knitting Club on Friday. It was so hard to put them in the bag and send them off. I took a picture of the ones I bagged up and I will likely knit them again. That's pretty goofy, right? They are knitted items afterall. If I am the only one, don't laugh too uproariously okay?!!

This where the knitting group ladies will be able to help. I suggest you look at the patterns for trauma teddies. They are very easy to do and are free.

I'm sure each and every one of your "knitted loves" will know more love from the ones that receive them! They are all darling and rest assured they will be appreciated!

Oh no you are truly not alone in this! Some things I was going to donate have not made it to the box .. saving instead for birthdays or other gifts. Within a year if not given then will part with them!

I have only done a few toys for donation but dozens of quilts and crochet toboggan and afghans. I try to make pictures of them just to remember what I liked, what patterns worked up well, and so on..I have a small photo album I have titled " A stitch in time " , it's purpose is to remember hand made items that were gifted. I love your toys and understand wanting pictures.

Hallelujah! Exactly what I do .... lots to charity ....friends and relatives. And yes, when items are appreciated by the reciever it does warm the heart.

I think that if you attached a "gift tag" to each stuffie that shows what you put into it, (like a prayer shawl), then you might feel a little more at ease, in knowing that the grateful recipient "gets it".

And I think that in particular, if it is a youngster receiving your gift, they will feel the hugs that we knitted into every stitch, more so if you are donating to say emergency services, or safe haven homes from abuse.

I say give each and every one a "Paggington Bear" type tag, with a little of the givers loving intent, and I think It will heal the rift in your giving heart, which we all understand, we give a little of ourselves each time we donate for a worthy cause.

Hugs for all your efforts!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I really really like your idea. If I do this again, I will definitely put 'loving intent' tags on each one. Thanks for sharing your idea.
