  1. I usually don’t get “sewn-gift requests” from my family, so I never thought about that! I usually get the typical sewing requests–hem pants, fix a rip, etc.

    I’m still fairly new at quilting, so I’ve been working on a “hug” (lap quilt) for each adult child and spouse, which they all know about. And I’m making handmade coasters to put in their stockings. Smaller things, so I don’t inundate them with MY fun projects! 😉

  2. I used to but now I’m more careful not to fill up my sewing time with requests. I have in the past spent more time than I’d like to remember doing clothing alterations, drapes & hems etc. I gave up sewing years ago because I couldn’t say ‘no’!

  3. I do take sewn-gift requests from family. They have to be very special loved ones to get a sewn gift from me. Last Halloween I made a poodle skirt for my 10 year old granddaughter at her request. It was fun, fit her perfectly and received many compliments at her various Halloween parties.

  4. Nope. I learned my lesson when I asked about colors/patterns for quilts and ended up working on things I wasn’t comfortable with and didn’t like when finished. LOL!

  5. I LOVE to get sewn-gift requests from my family – I get them every year and do my best to fulfill them. This year I’ve made purse organizers, pillows, potholders, eyeglass cases, a purse, bibs, burpies, and girls’ dresses. Fun, fun, fun!

  6. Yes – but I don’t encourage it. The request usually comes at the last minute and often is for something I don’t enjoy sewing. But I knock myself out to do the zaniest things if the grandchildren ask.

  7. I don’t get requests…
    To the question “Do you ever make things to sell?”, I reply “No, I get bored making multiples of the same thing”. I’m not roped into mmitting to sew something, but I know what project would make a good gift for that person!
