Simple Gifts to Sew OR How I Learned to Sew from the Internet

Here's the hand-out that I had at the DIY craft show. Please let me know if you try any of these projects. I'd love to know how they turn out for you!

For Baby:
--Bittie Booties
--Iron-On Appliqued Onesies
--simple stuffed animals: Here’s a tutorial for a “snoogum”
--washcloth baby bibs

For Kids & Teens:

--Freezer Paper transfers on t-shirts. You don’t even have to sew to make this one and they turn out awesome.
--Headbands for the girls.

For Adults:
--A little green? Cloth napkins are reuseable and easy to make (you can even make them out of thrifted fabric or organic cotton or hemp): Cut 17 inch squares; fold under and press ¼ inch hems around the edges; do this a second time so the hem is turned under twice; topstitch all around the edge.
--Feed your friend’s inner geek with a Fibonacci scarf
--Feeling quite adventurous?Try making a log cabin pillow.

Hey, I like the new look!

I've made bitty booties and I love them! I even passed the link onto an extremely talented cousin of mine and she tried them too. Long live bitty booties!

This is great for those of us who would like to do more sewing/crafty gifts, but need ideas. I'll let you know if I get around to trying any of these. I have another project I might try to tackle this Christmas.

I need ideas of what I could make for Christmas gifts. There aren't any babies......
