I love "crafting for Christmas"! For my sisters, I'm making each one a quilted table runner and matching place mats. For SS teachers and church volunteers I'm giving them assorted jar gifts (brownies, cookies, hot cocoa, etc.). For dear friends, I'm making wreaths. Whew! I'd better get busy, huh?! I'm a new follower -- please come check out my blog, too! :)
What a great giveaway!

Actually, I like to do food items, since the guys appreciate that, too. Sometimes I give away something special that I canned from our garden like salsa or hot mustard.

Pellon crafts has a project has a Togo embroidery bag that I made. I love it! Also, there is a super useful pin cushion that wraps around your sewing machine, so I made one for me. I found it on Martha Stewart's website.
TheMugglePuggle said…
It definitely depends on the person. My sister is always changing her decor and she loves when I make her pillow covers. They're easy to make, but they make such a huge difference in a room when you change them! :)
Winona said…

Amy said…
I sew most often for children so I enjoy making small toys and clothes!
Samantha said…
This year I'm making tons of Granny Square blocks in different fabrics. With Jelly Rolls they go super fast if you strip piece them. When I have stacks and stacks of them I'll start putting them into tops of different sizes and then doing a simple meander quilting pattern. I'm thinking I can have at least 10 quilts ready for gifting by end of December. I love strip piecing, such a time saver and I just love the way the Granny Block quilts look when they are done. :D

Thanks for a chance at this fabric! Bet you can guess what I'll do with it if I win! :D

Ali said…
Thank you! This is my first year quilting so I'm not sure, I'm making a mish mash of different things for different people. However sewn catnip toys are ALWAYS on my list for everybody, since I don't think I know a single person without at least one cat!
Barb said…
Potholders, coasters, placemats and mug rugs. It's easy to tailor these to the people who receive them.

Debbie said…
Varies with the person or type of gift. Pillows, pillow cases, baked goods....
bethstrand said…
My very favorite thing to give people is a quilt! It's like giving them a bit of my love that they can wrap up in. As for quicker gifts, I made a dozen of the Snap Happy wallets recently as party favors and everyone loved them. I'm thinking of making them for my girls to give to friends this Christmas.
Kathy said…
I love making lavender sachets. winterwrens at gmail dot com
Marcia W. said…
We like to make small loaf cakes and breads to give, along with spiced nuts and other special treats. For family, someone usually gets a lap quilt. This year I'm giving two grandnieces a dollie quilt each - just for play.
joyce said…
My favorite gift is reversible aprons Nancy Zieman-
Tricia said…
Humm I'm thinking that this year I am making a big box of assorted cookies for the few people I do them for. And If I can really squeak the super tight budget; some possible matching oven mitt & handtowels for my daughters. If I can find some big enough scraps to work with.

Thank You for the wonderful give away. Fall is so my favorite season and love to win.
Peggy said…

Lots of great suggestions! I have made scarves for my sisters (from a free pattern on Amy Butler's site), potholders and embellished kitchen towels. I also like to give homemade jam and cookie dough. Thanks!
Mary Ellen said…
I just made some darling ruffled kitchen towels, hotpads and an apron for a gift!
msmargie2 said…
It depends on the person as to what I make for them. Mom got embroidered dish towels one year, our daughter got a table runner with matching coasters.Our son got a raggety jean quilt and my husband got a tie quilt. Neighbors get a cookie tray or homemade salsa from the summers tomatoes with tortilla chips. Teachers get hand pieced book covers or ipad covers.I've also made little Christmas stockings just big enough to hold a gift card to the book store. I hope this helps you. Your giveaway is wonderful , there will be one happy quilter ! msmargie2@gmail.coom
PJ said…
I like to make little embroidered bags as gifts. I used to send fresh warm bread with a bread cloth if I can.
My favorite gift is baking breads and cookies and wrapping them up good in colored plastic wrap and putting them in either a basket that has been decorated to match their decor or a decorated tin.

Lisa said…
I love making tote bags as gifts. They are fun & relatively quick to make. Plus you can never have too many bags! :)
Judi said…
I like making different things for different people, based on their likes rather than just making one type of thing for everyone. I get a lot of inspiration from Pinterest and keep a board just for Christmas gift ideas. I especially like giving cookies and goodies. My husband's employer always gives us goodies for Christmas, and one year gave them in a homemade stocking, which was adorable.
Mom C said…
I like to do bottled stuff for neighbor gifts like jelly, salsa or weird stuff. Thanks.
Melanie said…
I usually end up either painting them an animal rock or baking something (usually cookies).
Deb said…
First thought I always have is "do I have time to make a quilt?" But then i usually settle for a table runner.

I have been making hand towels on my embroidery machine as gifts tucked in with some food item .
Margaret said…
A special occasion tablerunner is a quick gift - and it doesn't have to be for Christmas. Make a Thanksgiving, Easter or birthday tablerunner, which will be greatly appreciated both at Christmas gift time and another time during the year.
I like creating table toppers or table runners for gifts. Thanks for the opportunity to enter your wonderful giveaway!
I'll be making coasters and some bunting.
OhioLori said…
We usually make some Home-baked Goodie's & Caramel Corn as gifts. Always make Grandkiddo's new Flannel jamma's, and crochet Dishcloth's for giving, or fleece throws,

Thanks for chance to win your Drawing! :)
Loris said…
My latest favorites have been table runners :-) Thanks for the sweet giveaway!
Kate Brown said…
I like mug rugs and potholders for gift giving.
Laura Ann said…
Depends on the person.. I love making mug rugs for people who aren't crafters or quilters :) Knitting needle holders for family who loves to knit but need to wrangle in their needles (like my mother in law)
Judy1522 said…
One of my favorite gifts I make for people is to buy plain flower sack towels and embroider them. I love the towels as they are so big and are great for hand drying glassware.
Marsha said…
I like to make things for our kitchens, potholder, place mats, hand/dishtowels and scrubbers and give them with good smelling liquid hand soaps that I purchase.
My favorite thing to make for a gift has been a journal cover...but everyone I know now has one I think...so I need to come up with something new too!
free indeed said…
Well, I've made over 100 quilts for babies over the years I'm sure! I would love to make runners for gifts, but have only tried one. Did a table topper too. THose would be my next choice if it isn't a baby!
Nancy said…
Thanks for participating in the blog hop and giveaway. I usually make bread or cookies, sometimes an item of clothing that I know one of my daughters needs, but nothing very creative. It looks like you're getting lots of good suggestions, though.
Karen said…
What a lovely giveaway! I love making large tote bags as gifts. Who doesn't love a big ol' bag? Thanks for the chance to win your giveaway!
Goldogmom said…
I like to make zippered pouches, napkins, and mugrugs for sewing projects and baking treats too.

I like making quilts for gifts for people.
Malinda said…
I like to make small bags with either snap (measuring tape) or zipper tops, custom embellishments and straps. They are quick, easy to make and you can't have too many. There are lots of tutorials online to make these little beauties.
My favorite things to make for Christmas for my far flung collections of friends is a fabric ornament that's flat enough to stick inside a Christmas card. They vary from year to year--and, admittedly, some years are so hectic that they don't get made.
I started doing this because one of my favorite holiday activities is decorating my trees with ornaments from friends that bring back all kinds of wonderful memories.
Karen O said…
I am hoping to make wall hangings for some of my gifts this year. Love your giveaway and love your shop.
Sue said…
This is my placemat Christmas. I am making some that are holiday ones and others that are for year round use.
Karrie S said…
I haven't really made anything for people lately, but I think a new stocking would be cool. Or maybe Christmas placemats or mugrugs? Those are cute gifts to bring out every year to remember.
Lee said…
I love to give hand towels or kitchen towels that I have added a sewn/quilted border to or appliqued. Also pot holders and hot pads are good ideas too! thank you!
Donna said…
My go-to gift of late is a kitchen towel with a machine embroidered design or a quilted monogrammed keychain/credit card holder.
Maria Kievit said…
