With just a few days until Christmas, I thought some of you might appreciate having a few last-minute ideas for gifts to sew. So I’ve put together a little roundup of patterns and tutorials from my blog for you ALONG WITH A NICE PINTEREST-WORTHY IMAGE* just in case you’re still scrambling for ideas!
1 // Lickety Split Bag: This pattern takes the win for quickest gift that also is sure to impress. If you have a couple of yards of coordinating fabric and a couple of minutes to tape this pattern (it’s only five pages I think?) together, you’ll have a gift in no time. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve made this one as a gift; it’s useful as a shopping bag, diaper bag, gym bag, weekend bag…need I go on?
2 // Showoff Bag: This pattern of mine is one deserves some love because it’s an easy project that comes together quite quickly, making it a great gift. A yoga mat nestles nicely between the straps, by the way.
3 // Buttercup Bag: Probably deserves credit as the pattern that launched my business, the smaller sized handbag is free, and the larger size comes with the purchased pattern. Quick and easy and cute!
4 // Chevron Wristlet: This free pattern and tutorial is another great gift — if you don’t have time to piece together the strips, just use the main template for the outside and you have a super-quick gift.
5 // Pom-Pom Scarf: This is another free tutorial on my blog. I still wear this scarf more than any other I’ve made.

*I am not above producing Pinbait. And this image took for-freaking-ever to make, so I’m also not above pointing out how much work went into it. haha!!
