Great tutorial! Someone game me one awhile back and I thought it would make a great gift. Now I know how to make one. And, great fabric. Looking forward to *maybe* winning it!


The selvedge tags on these are so sweet. And the fabric is fantastic. This year I am all about little zip pouches. I like this tutorial from Splityarn best because it eliminated bunching by the zipper ends:


Those tissue packs are a great idea! I always have to have tissues with me, and the plastic always falls apart. These are going on my "to-make" list.

As for last minute gifts, it depends on the person but I alternate between baking goodies and sewing a baby blanket, but usually baked goods fit the bill! I gift the goods in tins from Ikea.


Love the fabric too. These are really fun and easy to make.


Love the fabric, and the tissue packs are awesome. I actually keep a bunch of new white tea towels on hand and just so a chain of my scraps together and add it to the tea towel. Quick, easy, and useful!


I love this fabric and saw your tutorial link on Sew Mama Sew. My favorite last minute gift is potholders. Everyone can use them, they don't take a lot of fabric, and also not a lot of time.


Favorite last minute gift to make, for babies and kids, hands down it's a little felt ball.

I use this pattern but make them with wool felt and sew by hand, then I can take them anywhere, the park, the car, the couch while the kids play, perfect!


I'm also a potholder gal for many of the same reasons mentioned above - they take a small amount of time to create from start to finish and are a great way to use up left over fabric scraps. Plus they are something that I feel would get used often!


Oh, wonderful! I was just thinking that I needed to find something simple to make for teachers, and this will be perfect. As for my own go-to gift, this year it will be peppermint popcorn!

thanks for this chance.
I love these,
and while my usual last minute gift is food,
I want it to be easy sewn items.. so thank you for the idea.
