10 Gifts to Sew
for holiday gift-giving
Here are several gifts to sew for holiday gift-giving! Pair something handmade with a few special store-bought items to create a fun gift basket, themed for the recipient.
Package an embroidered tea towel with a festive spatula, cake mix and fun sprinkles. Gift this to a friend who loves to bake! Grab a kit that includes six towel blanks, 12 wt. Cotton Petites Thread and hand embroidery patterns to make easy work of several gifts. Or grab an individual white tea towel and choose a holiday machine embroidery design personalized to the recipient.
Grab the Reindeer with Boots computerized embroidery design for FREE for a limited time!
A makeup brush holder is a great gift for any gal on your list. Add a set of nice brushes to complete the gift. Or fill the pockets with paintbrushes, drawing pencils or fun markers and package it with a pretty sketchpad.
Add a monogram or phrase with hand or machine embroidery to these gifts to sew. A fun tassel takes the zipper pouch to new heights! Fill the pouch with little trinkets for the recipient: pens and pencils, travel size toiletries, or make it into a first aid kit.
Grab the kit to make this potholder, featuring Snow Sweets fabric by Riley Blake Designs. Quilt the potholder with Sulky Poly Star™ thread for a touch of sparkle (also included in the kit!). Either wrap the potholder gift with the included sewing-themed cookie cutters, or keep them for yourself (shhhh, we won’t tell if you won’t!)
Grab the tutorial for this simple apron pattern and easily size it for a child or adult. Choose fabric scraps for the pieced panel that go with the recipient’s interests. Package the apron with a set of festive mixing bowls and a family recipe.
Gift this little project to a friend who loves coffee or tea. Package it with a nice mug and a bag of java or tea leaves.
A mug rug is a great way to use up fabric scraps while making something special for a good friend. Create different mug rugs for everyone on your list, in your office or on Zoom calls.
This throw makes a great baby gift for the holidays. The double-gauze fabric is nice and soft, and the addition of Poly Star thread for the quilting adds a bit of sparkle for eye candy. Make the throw larger or smaller, depending on the recipient.
An Embroider Buddy is a large stuffed animal that easily unzips fully so you can embroider a name or other personal message or motif on the belly. What better way to say “I Love You” to the kids or grandkids this season? Along with the moose is a snowman, teddy bears, dinosaurs and more!
