    I love the storage cube idea. And the Woodland Style book looks really cool!

  438. Andrea says:

    I think I need to make one of those sewing machine covers for me!

  439. Texana says:

    Having a considerable collection of fabrics (I refuse to call it a “stash”) I cannot believe I didn’t think of making those cute fabric storage bins! I always get such good ideas here! And I’d LOVE to win a book!

  440. Keola H says:

    That crochet hook case would be an awesome gift idea for my crocheting-like-crazy neighbor! She’ll just love it!

  441. Nicole says:

    Oh, and you’ve probably fixed this already…but the hexie caddy link is wrong…

  442. Cherie says:

    Thanks for sharing Obsessively Stitching’s Fabric Cube tutorial.

  443. Maya says:

    These are some great ideas! Love the cube!

  444. Nicole says:

    I am head over heals for that yarn bowl! I think I passed ceramics in high school only because the teacher took pity on me so I now have extra awe when seeing the work of others! I am going to make a slew of the baskets though, who can’t use extra storage space.that is pretty to boot!

  445. Marsha says:

    Storage cubes! I know so many people (including myself) who need those in copious quantities. Note to self…

  446. BrendaDe says:

    love the wrist pin cushion — thanks for the ideas!

  452. Tara says:

    That yarn bowl is gorgeous!!! I think my kids need to make pincushions for people this year…

  453. Fay says:

    The sewing caddy is such a great idea

  454. Lisa says:

    I could really use some of those baskets – and those hanging baskets. Oh, and I’m sure I know someone else who could too. These are great gift project ideas. Oh, and that yarn bowl – I’ve never seen anything like it and I think it is genius!

  455. Nicole says:

    I think I’ll make one of those hexi-caddies for myself! I could also use the hanging baskets/pockets…and maybe I could even adapt it to hold kids toys in the playroom! Thanks for another great roundup…I love this blog and all the chances to win.

  456. These are all great–totally gifts I want to make for myself!

  457. Lauranie says:

  467. Shara says:

    Hooray, these are great gift ideas for my crafty mom. That hexie caddy is awesome!

  468. Deanne says:

    Wow, so many of these ideas would work for more than just the crafter. I might try the hanging storage baskets in my kids’ room or in the mudroom to hold gloves and whatnot. The Sewing School book, also looks great. With four little girls all wanting to learn, I will have to look into this one further, lol.

  469. Mandi says:
