  1. I love to make little change purses and wallets. In some, I put gift cards. For my nieces and nephews, I put in money. Still, others are just a nice little gift to give

  2. I did 4 traveling shoe bags this year. These are all people that will not see my comments.
    Some I made with Embroidery and some without. Super quick. Love the projects at We All Sew. Going to go back and map out some projects for next year.

  3. My favorite quick gift to sew are wine stem coasters. They can be used as ordinary coasters for regular glasses, but for stemware, you can slip the coaster onto the base of the stem. It’s great for parties because no one forgets whose glass is whose and it’s harder for someone to accidentally take someone else’s wine. I have some made up in various colors, so each guest can match the coaster to their outfit.

  4. Oh, how cute is that unicorn!! I only have grandsons, so nobody in the family is really into unicorns, but it’s still cute! Thanks so much for the great holiday gift ideas! Great stuff!! And thanks, too, for the chance to win some great stuff!!! I think my favorite quick thing to sew is the little gift bags. I give out Wilbur’s Buds (chocolates) to the family at Christmas time, and they’re perfect!! Merry Christmas!

  5. I like making pot holders for gifts because I can personalize them and make them stand out over those one might buy in a store. My family counts on me making them for Christmas to add to their supply. The one in this post is easy to make.

  6. My favorite and quickest gift to make is the key fob wristlet. I gave so many of these away and everyone sent me notes about how much liked them. I made them with scraps and they were the best gift.

  7. I have made some folded fabric pot holders this year for a quick gift or hostess gift. They go together really fast.
    I love all of these ideas and look forward to trying them.
