Quick Gift Ideas

As you are well aware, Christmas is right around the corner. Need a quick gift?

There are so many wonderful tutorials out there in blog land. If you have one that you enjoy, I'd love to hear about it. But for today, grab your cuppa of coffee or hot tea and visit these interesting and informative blogs.

As always we love to read Karen's very creative Tool Time Tuesday. Check out her repurposed gift tags. I just might have to get one of those big round punches.

A while back Sew Prim Khris did a very cute tutorial on making a Needlecase. What a great gift idea for a hand quilter.

This is one of my all time favorite Travel-sized Tissue Cozy patterns. One year I made a ton of these. Kim shared her easy tutorial on "an oft traveled road".

I have all the fabric ready and waiting for this pattern by Tea Rose Home. It is a Modern Square Garden quilt.

Who couldn't use another purse in your choice of color. Bola Chica offered a tutorial on a very cute Pleated Purse. You could certainly make one for every outfit. And who wouldn't love and use this adorable Friendship bag courtesy of "p.s. I Quilt"? Or how about a lined handbag? The ever famous Zippered Pouch?

Have you got a little buddy to make a gift for? How about this TOO cute Softie doll from "60piggies".

And for all my tea loving friends, a Tea Wallet Tutorial (Is It Naptime Yet?). Perfect to stick in someone's stocking this year.

For teachers and friends. And add a Notebook Cover from "My Patchwork".

One more very cute Tote Bag.

Remember when your Mom wore an apron in the kitchen? Here are apron patterns for you to use from Tipnut.  Studio Cat Designs has lots of Free patterns. And here is a library of Free Quilting Patterns and Projects from the Quilting Gallery. All in one quick place.

I've got dozens and dozens of these tutorials bookmarked on my computer. But my purpose today was to give you one post that you can bookmark and go back to visit whenever you need a quick little gift.

Wheww... that should get you started! Now Go forth and SEW :-)

Wow, thanks! All I can say is that if we say that we don't have any ideas for something hand made to give for Christmas, it's our own fault ... because you've shared a whole bunch of resources.

It's a small world. Khris & her hubby, Glenn have stayed at our home, twice.
