Are you looking for the perfect gift idea for a loved one, but are stumped at where to begin? Our team at Nature’s Fabrics has you covered with this list of our favorite projects that take little time to complete and are sure to impress. Here are six of our favorite holiday gift ideas you can sew.
1. Teddy Bears
If you have a special little one in your life, sewing a teddy bear is a fun gift idea that is sure to be a hit. There are tons of patterns online to get you started and we have many whimsical prints that would be perfect for this project. Our favorites include our Out of This World and Ballerina Bunny designs.
2. Travel Pillows
Whether your family likes to go on extended car rides or just spends a lot of time on the road, travel pillows are always a handmade favorite. Not only do they take very little time to put together, they are useful throughout the coming year. The trick to this is choosing soft and washable fabrics, like our cotton fleece.
3. Throw Blankets
Who doesn’t love curling up on the couch with a warm beverage and a blanket? Instead of spending money on expensive throws as gifts, consider making your own. They take far less time to complete than a traditional quilt and are just as enjoyable. Best of all, our bamboo fabrics are soft enough and come in a wide range of designs to help you create the perfect design.
4. Tree Ornaments
If you’re looking for a quick-and-easy project that is memorable, create a few handsewn tree ornaments. Whether it is a stuffed ball, a Santa Claus, or a reindeer, there are plenty of great designs out there to get you started. Not only are they a great tradition to start for your family, these custom fabric ornaments also make whimsical stocking stuffers.
5. Bows and Gift Tags
Have a bunch of fabric scraps from a year of creating wonderful handmade projects? Use them to make bows and gift tags. These extra little touches mean a lot and they make presents look just a little bit better under the tree. Plus, it is a great way to get rid of those extra pieces around without tossing them into the trash.
Have someone in your life that loves to cook? A custom apron is an excellent gift idea. This special sewn project is sure to bring a smile to their face all year long. Our natural and eco-friendly fabrics come in a ton of different prints that are perfect for making an apron, plus they wash really well if there are any spills or stains during use.
