Here’s today’s post:
Christmas is still a few months away, but it’s never too early to start thinking about what gifts you want to give. And there’s definitely nothing better than recieving a handmade and personalized gift from someone close to you. Why not make sure the people you’re giving gifts to know you’ve been thinking about them by giving them something handmade?
I found so many cool projects on AllFreeSewing that would work as amazing gifts for a lot of my friends. I know my tech savvy friends and my wanna-be tech savvy father would love to get some of these cool gadget covers. I found this iPad Case that I know will be made in several different fabrics and handed out to a few people.
After I make one of these Kindle Keepers for myself, I am going to make two more for my other book-loving friends. One of them I will probably substitute with a button, since my male friends are generally not bow friendly.
This Zippered Laptop Sleeve is a great present for anyone who travels around with their laptop a lot.
Now, of course, not everyone has friends and family that love gadgets, but I bet there’s at least one cook in every household! I found this super cute apron shape. I’m not a huge fan of sunflowers personally, so I would probably use different fabric. Either way it make one adorable apron that I know my mother would love!
And if the apron wearer in your house is a gardener, I’ve got you covered there too! This Easy Gardening Apron would be perfect for that.
When it comes down to it, I plan on putting my sewing machine to work this holiday season and seeing if I can pull out some cute, fun, and completely personal gifts for the people I love. There are so many other ideas out there like a grocery tote for my sister, some stuffed toys for my nieces, and a catnip mouse for the family cat!
What are you sewing for this holiday season!
