Yes, it’s a Christmas post. Guess what? We are down to 32 shopping days until the BIG DAY. Crazy, I know! Are you ready?
Ready or not, it’s coming for us! And I can not be any more excited!
I’ve been watching Hallmark movies for the last week and I’m totally not opposed to letting my radio play some festive tunes when I get in the car. I’m what some may call a Christmas junkie. Though, I must say, I will wait until after Thanksgiving is over until I actually decorate my home.
I was recently asked by my local quilt shoppe to do a “Trunk Show” presentation on some quick and easy gift ideas for Christmas. Since it was for a quilt shoppe, I stuck with the items being something with some type of sewing involved, but most all of them are ideas that are fairly quick to make. The trunk show was this past Saturday and I think it’s safe to say it was a success. 🙂
So, today I would like to share with you the ideas I had, and a cute little saying I paired up with each of them. Each of the printables can be found on this post HERE and are available for you to download and print for free! Yay!!!
So, let’s get started……
These three patterns are all from one of my favorite pattern designers, Kim Christopherson. You can find her pattern line Kimberbell Designs and purchase the patterns for these HERE.
This cute table runner is one of my own patterns and can be purchased through me. Just shoot me an email and I can send a digital copy!
How cute is it paired up with a cute whisk and this fun printable?
Tea Towels are always a fun gift to both give and receive. This is one of my favorite patterns and can be found HERE.
This casserole carrier is fun and quick to make. Find the pattern HERE.

Speaking of little ones….HERE‘S a cute gift idea!
And THIS car roll-up is great for all those die-cast cars you probably have.
I-Spy bags are a great option for most any age and keep those hand busy for quite a while…..make your own with THIS tutorial.
Christmas books are fun to give, so pair it up with a treat….in a PEEK-A-BOO pouch!
Keep your hands toasty warm with some pocket warmers. See how to make some HERE.
A zip pouch has many uses, but fill it with some treats to start with. HERE‘S a great tutorial for a zip pouch you can make.
A sunglasses case may not be your first thought for a gift this time of the year, but THIS one is so cute, you just won’t be able to resist it!
Give something for your friend to rest their eyes….THIS eye mask is so perfect for the busy lady in your life.
Know someone who loves to sew? A pincushion would be a great gift idea, and I love THIS one!
HERE is an apron you will love to make and love to wear.
Scarves are great this time of the year! Make THIS one for a friend or family member and they’ll think of you every time they wear it!
THIS has to be one of my most popular sewing tutorials here on the blog, and I’m sharing it again with all of you. Pair it up with candy canes and cocoa mix….cute and easy gift!
Quilts and blankets are a popular gift this time of the year. Wrap it up with a cute saying and it’s sure to be treasured for years to come! (This is my own Posey Garden pattern, available for purchase from me.)
My daughter loves skirts! Find some festive fabric and make up a cute skirt for your little girl to wear, using THIS pattern.
Sewing together a tea towel and hot pad makes a clever and quick gift as well! (Sorry, no tutorial on this one. Just mark the center on both and take a seam down the middle to attach them together. Piece of cake!)
Even if you aren’t into much sewing, attaching some ric-rac or ribbon to a store-bought tea towel really dresses it up. Pair it up with a bottle of dish towel and this saying and you are set!
And last, but not least, my very own Merry and Bright throw pillow pattern. If you are interested in purchasing this, please email me and I’ll send you a digital copy.
