All I Want for Christmas is....

Some cute and handy gift ideas for the crafty friend in your life (most are from my favorite site for handmade gifts: Etsy!

Amy Butler patterns..I mean, who doesn't drool for these? So adorable and most are pretty simple to do. Picking out the fabric is the hardest part!


 

Buy them here: Swell Cloth



Spa Goddess Sugar Scrubs...yummmm, and she's offering a travel-size set of 5 where you pick the scents/flavors!

Buy them here: Etsy




Dandelion Pillow by MaDahms on Etsy...so adorable, fresh, and modern. I love this embroidered pillow for it's beauty and simplicity.


But it here: Etsy


Ultimate Quilt Binding Tool...I am dying to try this little gadget out to machine bind my quilts. While a lot of people like hand-sewing the binding on to the backing, I do not find this part of the finishing process fun at all. I much prefer to piece and quilt and then just be done with it so I can display or use the quilt. I am so hopeful this tool works since it sews both sides of the binding on simultaneously...heaven!

Family Necklace..I have one of these with 1 child, but now that baby girl #2 is on her way, I definitely need to get a new one!


Buy it here: Red Envelope


Night Before Christmas Activity Kit..this one you'll need to get before the big day of course, but I couldn't resist adding it in, it's such a good idea. Now really, you could make one of these "kits" yourself, but it's packaged so nicely here I figured I'd spend my time doing all of the other things leading up to Christmas, and let this take care of itself.

Herb Snips..so cute and handy for snipping those small pieces of herbs from your garden or containers outside your window.


Buy them here: Burpee

  1. Have you tried this binding tool? I too hate stitching binding to the back of the quilt. For projects that aren't going to possibly ever be in a show or given as a special gift I always machine the binding down on both sides. Would be nice to have a tool that does it all in one pass though.
