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.
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.
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.
For additional gift ideas you can check out the patterns at SewWithSarah.com.
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!
