Stashbusting - 10 Quick and easy Christmas gifts14:37
Have you started counting the days until Christmas? It's almost here!
Because I know you want to 1) make your friends and family happy again this year, 2) do some sewing and 3) reduce some of that fabric stash (!), here are a few quick and easy ideas for Christmas gifts you can sew.
But first stockings!
Use a couple of different fabrics and personalise them with an iron-on initial like these ones from GoodWishesQuilts or embroider your giftee's name.
Are you going to a party? Dress up the wine bottle (or homemade syrup?) in a nice, fitted, tote bag like this one from studiowonjun.
It's basically a very tall and thin totebag. You can personalise it by ironing on a funny message as well!
These ornaments from SongoftheSeam are a great idea for those who love the smell of cinammon. Make small trees out of fabric triangles and use a cinammon stick for the tree trunk.
You could also make these bigger and create toys for the kids in your family. You can create fun toys that match their current passions and aren't alike any other toys they own, like this unicorn doll.
Another idea is to make a long bow tie, like this one from Asos from a chiffon or silk. Just make a really long rectangle, press it lengthwise and sew the three sides, leaving a small opening to turn the project over. It you make it long enough, this could also become a fabric sash.
