Inexpensive Gift Idea

I love homemade gifts! Especially ones that don't cost much money. For wedding gifts, I crochet a couple hot pads, add some utensils, and maybe throw in some dish scrubbies.
I start by making the hot pad into a long strip (it is single crochet), then I fold it over and crochet around the outside. When making the stripe pattern, it helps to make it symmetrical, and that's why you see the repeat of the blue stripe in the middle.
And this is the finished product! You can also do them plain as you see on the bottom. I have given these on a few other occasions as well, and people love them. They are nice and thick and look nice too.
Do you have inexpensive gift ideas?
