Last Minute Christmas Gifts

#AD It’s finally December and with Christmas just around the corner so begins the mad rush to get all of our presents ready for the big day. If you have spent the year buying (and stitching) your gifts in preparation for this busy month then allow us to congratulate you! However, if you are yet to finalise your plans and you are starting to feel a little concerned about the fast approach of the 25th, have no fear! We have pulled together a list of five fabulous gift ideas that can be picked up at the last minute, but are as thoughtful and as impressive as prezzies that involve a lot more preparation. It really is the best of both worlds!

Flying Bobbins

Last Minute Christmas Gifts

The Flying Bobbins Infinity Scarf is a great project for beginner sewists, and makes the perfect gift. The double gauze co-ordinates beautifully with the printed viscose and is super soft and warm. Included in the kit are two pieces of fabric, clear instructions and a link to a helpful video which takes you through each step of the project. This Kit comes gift boxed, and is as lovely to make as it is to wear.

The Crafty Nomad

Last Minute Christmas Gifts

These spool shaped enamel pins are the perfect gift for any sewist or quilter in your life.

Why not buy the PDF pattern as well and sew up a matching mug rug or cushion featuring the cotton reel to go along with the badge.

From Rags to Riches

Need a pretty seasonal wreath, or an unusual table topper? Whip up this dimensional design in an afternoon. Created with the confident beginner in mind, the Fold' n Stitch Wreath Pattern by Poorhouse Quilt Designs boasts a 21" diameter when completed and can be made using your favourite selection of fabrics, although From Rags to Riches loves the Bosdal In-R-Form 6" squares if you are searching for a recommendation.
