As the temperatures continue to drop here in MN, I am starting to think more and more about getting those holiday gifts started so they are actually ready for holiday giving! If you need ideas for the crafty people in your life, here are just a few that go together quickly:
Fold and Go is a portable design wall you can bring with you to classes or retreats! Hang it from a hook on a wall or door when you want to place pieces before sewing. Run out of time, just fold it up and the pieces inside stay put until you get home. This is a super handy and useful gift any quilter would love!
Do you have a sassy and crafty friend who would get a laugh when they receive this fun mini quilt? We all know the struggles to protect our sewing scissors...
This fun wall hanging goes together in a snap and is sure to be a favorite gift!
The pattern is called Are You Shearious? and makes a small quilt, this mini quilt and a fun pillow.
Over Under as in Over your table or Under your tree… This pattern makes 3 sizes - 24”, 36” & 48”. Leave the center whol and you have a beautiful table topper. Cut the center out and you have a lovely tree skirt. IF you need a quick gift, the 24” size whipped together quickly using a 30 degree triangle ruler. I put one together this weekend at a sewing retreat. All it needs is a little batting, some simple quilting and a binding. Done. It will be ready for someone special to receive.
I hope you have a lovely time sewing and crafting for the holidays!
