Every year the holidays seem to sneak up on us. If you have people on your list you’d still like to sew for, we have some ideas for you!
Quick and Easy Gifts to Make:
- Scarves Using just a yard or two of fabric, you can make a quick scarf with frayed ends. Want to snazz it up a bit? Add some pom-pom fringe!
- Dala Ornaments These classic Swedish ornaments come together quick, and are OH so cute.
- Diva Wallet This wallet can be made up using just two fat quarters of your choice – perfect for customization!
- An Oberlin, Portsmith or Fremont Tote Bag We all could use more bags, right? These awesome new patterns from Klum House look great made up in a rugged waxed cotton.
- A Clutch Purse This sweet clutch comes together quick, and holds a surprising amount! Use the fabric of your choice to make it entirely unique.
- Quilted Pillows You may not have time to make a whole quilt at this point, but plenty of our quilt patterns have pillow versions! The Fancy Fox, Sleepy Sloth, and Hazel Hedgehog are a few of our faves.
- Pillowcases Make a matching set of pillowcases in no time, using a cozy flannel, a fun quilting cotton, or a sophisticated silk.
- Grainline Stowe Bag This bag is lined with pockets and compartments, perfect for the knitter or crafter in your life.
- Fabric-Scrap Dog Bed Use up your old scraps and make a pup happy! Win win.
What would YOU like this year?
- Merchant & Mills Scissors These scissors are perfect for cutting out your paper patterns, and of course look so handsome on display in your sewing room…
- Fancy Seam Rippers Ripping out seams is just part of sewing. You may as well enjoy it with a fancy seam ripper! Choose from wood or acrylic (in-store only. Call if you’d like to order one!)
- Zirkels This is no ordinary pin cushion. The extra-strong magnet easily picks up pins around your workspace and arranges them around the edge for easy access.
