We are back with another holiday gift guide! We have suggestions below for gifts to make to give or gifts to give the sewists in your life.
These are some of our favorites as well as some of the most popular from the Folkwear collection of patterns and supplies. Some of them are even FREE patterns!! What are you going to make or give this holiday season?
For the Home
We have a new free pattern this year! A traditional quilted tea cozy that would make a lovely gift, especially paired with some tea, or tea cakes, or a tea pot. This is a quick and easy project! And so sweet.
I also really love the oven mitts pattern that we published last year. I found some similar ones in England over the summer in beautiful floral prints and want to make more (inspired by those British mitts) this holiday season for some friends. Another gift this is perfect paired with baked goods (or a bread tin).
#305 A Japanese Interior. This sewing pattern makes a great gift to give, but it also has quite a few beautiful pillow, or cushion, patterns that would make great gifts. You could make the sitting cushions, the sleeping pillows, or the folding futon for some fun and interesting gifts.
Quick and Easy Gifts to Wear (little to no fitting required)
Cynthia's Cookie Apron. A really fabulous (and quick) gift to sew! It really make a wonderful and extremely useful apron that anyone would love to wear - in the kitchen or in the garden.
#112 Japanese Field Clothing. Another great pattern to gift, but it also makes great work clothes - the pants are perfect for gardening and the jacket is a lovely jacket to wear around the home.
Just for the Sewist
Tracing Fabric. This amazing Swedish Tracing Fabric is a sewist's dream. Perfect for tracing patterns, it can be sewn together to test fit or how a pattern goes together, before starting on your fashion fabric. It is see-through and strong. You can also draw on it to test embroidery placement or other ideas. Sewists love it!
Gift card. A perfect gift for the sewist in your life - someone who loves our patterns or would love to try our patterns.
A buttonhole cutter. This is such a great feeling tool - so sharp and a really special item to have in your sewing toolbox. We use ours all the time!
Bias Tape Makers. A sewing must-have (in my opinion!). These make sewing bias tape so much easier! And we do use them a lot.
