Quick And Easy Gift Ideas

There aren’t too many days left before Christmas, so I’m thinking that whatever gifts we still have time to make need to be some nice, but quick and easy gifts to make.

The first idea that comes to mind are washcloth slippers – you’ve probably seen them on our PatternsThatFitYou site, as well as our Patterns2Go site.

Free Washcloth Slippers Pattern

Either place you want to visit, the pattern instructions are FREE, easy to follow and very quick to make.  The washcloth slippers are a super gift to give to those in nursing homes, in hospitals as well as anybody else on your gift list.

The second idea for a cute gift is the “anything goes” quilt.  This pattern is also free and available from Patterns2Go.

Super Easy Anything Goes Quilt Pattern

The idea here is to use a length of fabric according to the quilt size you want to make – the fabric should have some designs on it, as shown above, but not be “too busy” with designs.  You will sew the fabric to a backing, put quilt batting on the inside, then do your quilt stitching either around the designs, if they are large enough, or do hand quilting stitches around all or part of the designs to complete the quilt.   This type of quilt is great for children’s quilts or for little girls for doll quilts.  If you have the right type of decorative fabric, this also works very well as a wall hanging to make as a gift.

Do any of you have any other ideas for quick and easy gift ideas????  I’m thinking that a lot of us who really like to make Christmas gifts are getting to where “quick and easy” would sound really good!
