I really enjoy making soft toys for kids
Some little handmade thing to be part of a kids present – head band or clips or bag. Thanks
I’ve always done custom portraits or artwork. But now that I’ve taken up sewing in the last year, my daughter gets lots of clothes and at Christmas her first stuffed animal! Simple totebags are a great go-to gift, along with baby blankets.
I like sewing baby blankets for showers.
This year it is zippy pouches
I love making things for my children as presents, but I still have quite a bit to get done this year…hope I haven’t bitten off more than I can chew!
There are so many patterns I’ve had my eye on, especially the art tote.

I think you can’t really go wrong with sewing bags or storage solutions (such as fabric baskets) for gifts. 🙂

I just love your little kids totes pattern. Just bought the pattern to make some for my new little grand kids adopted in September!

I make market bags to give to friends. We are plastic bag free at supermarkets and may shops here so I make my own- colourful so I know they’re mine.

The gifts I’ve made and given that seem to be most appreciated are bags (the Swoon Glenda was really well-received)! I’m looking at making lip balm holders for this year…
Weirdly enough I don’t do much sewing for gifting. Not enough people appreciate it! But my kiddos love the clothes I make them.
Linden Scilley says
Have been making the boxer shorts, go bake something aprons & PJ party PJ’s for Christmas gifts. Love all three patterns!
Kris C. says
It totally depends on the year – PJ pants or sets are always possible, boxers are great for guys, Christmas stockings with novelty fabrics that go along with the recipient’s interests, scrub shirts, or recently infinity scarves.
Marina Sereda says
I like to gift bags. Messenger bags for kids, clutches for ladies
I do love to make clothes for children, even if they are time consuming. I especially love making them for baby showers – yes, I do love hearing the ooh’s and ahhs of everyone ;-). My favorite is when they are having girls – so much fun to make little dresses 🙂

I love the pot holder pattern! great for Christmas gifts!
Louisa G says
I love Fishsticks patterns and have a small collection of them. My favorite gift giving sewing project is the Scrappy Sack pattern from Fishsticks! I’ve adapted the pattern and added various zippered pockets both inside and out, and made a thick quilted lining, made it reversible, made the pattern smaller and made kid sized crossbody bags out of it also. The pattern is so perfect for making it your own with a few tweaks. My crossbody Scrappy Sack is the most well received gift in my world lol!!

Gift giving….hmmm… so many bags I have made this year as gifts. Need to find something new for next year…
Normally hot pads or mug rugs, although I will do something else if appropriate, like hairbands for girls, or a small quilt for baby.

Hard to answer because I’ve been on such a knitting kick lately. I just got a book out of the library with Christmas ornaments and I bought the supplies, so maybe I will get some ornaments done this week!

Bags or tablet cases are my favorite. Have a great day! dawnm1993 at gmail dot com
Kylie C says
For adults I like making potholders – people always need them (otherwise they continue to use gross stained ones), people people will actually use them (I use to do embroidered tea towels but they just sat in drawers because people didn’t want to “ruin” them), and they are fun to make (they are the perfect size to try out a new technique or quilt block).
I love to sew dolls and doll clothes as gifts.
Merry Christmas! Love seeing how you use the beautiful cottons!
Love your giveaway. Saw your boxer briefs for boys a couple years ago and fell in love :0)

My friends are all much better sewers so I don’t make sewn gifts. Someday I hope to make bags for everyone.
Hard to say since I like customizing my gift for the recipient! I love making costume themed clothes for my son for example…
Flannel crib sheets, hooded towels, pillowcases. Depending the age of the recipient. 🙂
Love your patterns!
