Thinking about gifts for the holiday season? So are we!
With the economy still pretty shaky, the idea of making our own unique gifts for family and friends is extra appealing this year. But of course ~ they must be gorgeous to get the SassyPacks stamp of approval! So, we are busy brainstorming a whole host of holiday quilt projects. Here are a couple of our early favorites:
Ah ... vino! The perfect solution to office holiday parties, Secret Santas, and every "I'm not sure we are exchanging gifts yet" situation. We're making up lots and lots of these beautiful wine totes, featured in the popular "Let's Do Lunch" pattern book. So simple ~ just a couple of half-yard cuts makes up 3 totes. The picture here uses the stunning Wintergraphix fabrics for a holiday theme. We are embellishing ours with a simple ornament and a little ribbon to cinch it up.
Super Simple Quilts
It is natural to want to give quilts as a gift, especially when you are new to quilting and eager to share your talents with those you love the most. But, with the holiday season rapidly approaching, time is short. A simple trick? Whip up easy quilts using bold, contemporary fabrics ~ the kind you see at SassyPacks.com all the time! Let the quilt feature the bold patterns, rather than detailed piecework. That allows you to give a beautiful gift from the heart, without spending a lot of time.
half-yard bundles for beautiful patterns sure to please.
These are just a few of the ideas we are dreaming up for this holiday season. Share your creative inspirations in the comments, and check back for more gift ideas!
