Want to give something handmade to your loved ones? But are strapped for time? I hear you! So to give you some ideas, I have put together four awesome DIY gift ideas that you can sew really quick.
Sew a Pair Of Mittens
Did you know you can sew a pair of mittens in less than an hour using my Tova Mittens Sewing Pattern? It’s a perfect scrap buster project, and you even Turn an Old Sweater into Mittens for an eco-friendly and hand-knitted look.
Make a Quick (and Chafe-Free) Buff
Sewing a tubular scarf is super-quick and easy. And it’s such a useful and versatile gift. Check out my step-by-step tutorials for how to sew a chafe-free buff using either a serger or a sewing machine.
Sew an Easy Hat or Beanie
Have you tried sewing your own knit hats and beanies? It is so easy and the perfect scrap buster. I have 3 Sewing PDF Patterns For Knit Hats and they are all very quick and easy to make.
Plus you can Refashion an Old Sweater and make it into a beanie too!
DIY Runner Belt
The perfect gift to your active friend. Or perhaps as a gift to yourself 🙂 I have a tutorial that shows How To Make a Running Belt that will look very profesh but is actually really easy to sew and with no pattern required. Again a perfect way to use up some leftover fabric scraps and notions.
Hope that these little DIY projects got you inspired to make some last-minute gifts for the Holidays. And don’t forget to give yourself the gift of something handmade too! I wish you all Happy Holidays and a Crafty New Year 🧵
