Holiday Gift Ideas: Sewing Patterns






Are you thinking about making some gifts for the holidays? I've selected my favorite patterns and put them into categories to help you pick something based on your needs:

Fast and Inexpensive:

Hip Klip Pocket Accessory Large:
I love this little little bag. I've made so many of them that I can crank one out in under 45 minutes. 

All you need is a fat quarter, two zippers, and two eyelets. I love Hip Klips, but you can use carabiners.

Why is it so fast to make? There is no lining fabric. The zippers are sewn on the fold!

This is similar to the Hip Klip. It's bigger, isn't flat, and has an adjustable strap.

Wine Bottle Gift Bag:

This fast project it a gift within a gift. And it doesn't take much fabric. And just check out those corks! 

This is a great project for a beginner.

For the Organized:


The Sewing Caddy/Purse Organizer:

This is my top selling pattern on Craftsy. It's not only a sewing caddy, but it makes a great purse organizer. 

To speed up sewing, use store-bought bias tape.

The Transit Tote:

These are also called Train Cases. I've seen some similar patterns but none are as simple to make as this one. I use my Inside-Out Zipper technique to simplify the whole process. 

I've included two bonus patterns: a mesh pouch and jewelry valet. Perfect for traveling.

I love this pattern so much that I made seven of them for gifts.

The Cosmetic Bag with Brush Roll:

I designed this pattern almost five years ago. It's one of my top selling patterns on Craftsy.  

My friend described it as genius. I'm still using the first one I made. This camo one went to my niece who's in the Army.

For the Techie:

These wallets are what my friends want as gifts. We all travel light. I used my Inside-Out Zipper technique to make zipper installation a lot easier.

The Tech Tote Crossbody Bag:

A great gift for those who carry their tech with them. It's got lots of room for other gear. And it's all zipped up. 

I used my Inside-Out Zipper technique for this bag, too. A pattern tester described it as easy to follow with a great zipper technique. I couldn't agree more!

For the Eco-Warrior:

The Upcycled Sweatshirt Purse:

This is another really popular pattern on Craftsy (with a 4.5 out of 5 rating).

It's a fun gift that allows you to preserve those old sweatshirts!

The Upcycled Sweatshirt Backpack:

Perfect for the backpack wearer. Just head to the local Salvation Army and head home and start sewing. It's nothing complicated. I include the grommet math (to make sure you equally space the grommets/eyelets).
