Yes, it is not yet even Halloween and I’m talking Christmas… but hear me out.  If you’re looking to make some Christmas gifts this year then you want to give yourself plenty of time to make them without stressing yourself out.  So today I am sharing 15 Christmas Gifts to Sew that people are actually going to want to get this year.

Now, clearly not everyone would love every gift on this list so you’ll have to think about your intended recipient and what he or she would really love but hopefully this list will give you a couple of good ideas for each person on your list.

Christmas Gifts to Sew

[ONE] Infinity Scarf

This is a super simple one to sew up quickly and I have made several of these as gifts.  Pick out a fabric with colors that you think the recipient will like and I’m sure they will love it!

My easy peasy potholder tutorial has been shared over 76,000 times on Pinterest because it really is super easy to make.  I originally made these for my granny and so it’s a project that is special to me and one of my favorite Christmas gifts to sew.

[THREE] Fabric Basket

We all love storage and I think that this would actually make a great base for a gift that you could fill with a few other gifts like some fun bath soaps and bath bombs or fun kitchen accessories, etc.

[FOUR] Heating Pads

Heading back into the kitchen I think that an oven mitt and some nice kitchen utensils wrapped up with a ribbon would make a cute gift for the bakers in your life.

[ELEVEN] Coasters

These coasters are very easy and quick to sew up.  I think if you’re gifting someone a mug then it would be really neat to gift a set of these along with it.

[TWELVE] Zipper Pouch

Zipper pouches are useful for so many things!  You can gift one for someone to use a pencil pouch stuffed with some colored pencils and a fun coloring book or a makeup bag with some fun holiday colors.

[THIRTEEN] No Sew Fleece Throw
