Handmade Holidays Nov. 4: Easy Gifts for Beginners to Sew

on November 4 | in Handmade Holidays, Sewing Inspiration, Sewing Tutorials + Patterns | by | with 230 Comments

Jennifer and Kelly curated a set of tutorials with the beginning sewist in mind. If you’re new to sewing (or if you’re participating in our Teach a Friend to Sew series) this is your day! Many of these selections would be fun for kids to make too.

Today’s Guest Curators: Jennifer + Kelly from Craftree

From Jennifer: Kelly and I opened Craftree this past summer. We are both avid crafters and sewists, and had our own respective businesses; we were thrilled to turn our friendship into a new small business. We have a brick and mortar shop located in Huntington, NY and we’re set on providing a place for both children and adults to flex their creative minds and muscles. Besides our classroom, we also are blogging about our crafting and sewing adventures. Our personal style comes out through our posts and we hope that others find our projects as interesting as we do.

Make It

Leather + Flannel Snap Scarf
Delia Creates shows you how to make a Leather + Flannel Snap Scarf. The scarf might appeal to teens on your list, or the family member with extra style!

Embroidery Hoop Storage Pockets
These Embroidery Hoop Storage Pockets from Sew Delicious are easy and fun to sew. Tweens would love a pocket for organizing, and your favorite crafter would likely love one too!

Hot/Cold Packs
The Smashed Peas + Carrots Hot/Cold Packs help make everything better; add warmth to chilly mornings at the bus stop, or cool a strain or bump. These are also fun to make in multiples, so you can gift one to your each of your friends, to the neighbor kids, etc.

Canvas + Leather Lunch Bag
The Pretty Prudent Canvas + Leather Lunch Bag would make an especially nice present for men on your gift giving list.

Lazy Days Doll Skirt
If you know someone who loves 18-inch dolls, the Lazy Days Doll Skirt from Oliver + S might be just the right project! Match the doll skirt and a kid-sized skirt (free tutorial on the same site) for a lovely gift set.

Easy Infinity Scarf
A Sew Can She Easy Infinity Scarf can feature your favorite fabrics. Make one for each of your friends!

Self Binding Baby Blanket
Little ones on your list can cuddle up with this easy, Self Binding Baby Blanket via Diary of a Quilter.

Easy Pillowcase
Our How to Sew a Pillowcase PDF excerpt from Shea Hendersons’s School of Sewing: Learn It, Teach It, Sew Together shows you how to make a quick, custom case!
