My daughter went off to college this semester and needed a new laptop case. A hand sewn laptop case is a great DIY gift idea for the student in your family. I used metallic leather and some leftover blue fabric I had from making a blazer last Fall. I followed this very simple tutorial and it only took about an hour to complete.

My best friend finally was able to buy her very own house. She had been living with her family, who she really loves, but it was a big step that she needed to finally take. Its a little Victorian style cabin by Lake Buchanan and she’s doing her kitchen in a farmhouse country theme, shes even got a 1950s O’Keef and Merrit Gas range. I am so happy for her and so thrilled at her bravery to finally strike out on her own, I knew I had to make something extra special for the wonderful new kitchen. I decided on the handmade tea towels, so they could be draped along the handles of that beautiful range. She cried when I gave them to her, she’s so happy about her new place in the Sun.

3. Patchwork Scarf

My Mom is always getting a chill in her throat and ears, so I decided to make her a festive patchwork scarf with pom poms for Christmas. She loves my hand sewn DIY gifts and brags to everyone at her church group how her daughter is and an excellent seamstress, of course, that leads into she learned it all from me, but that’s ok with me. She’s going to love this so much because it’s not a bulky knit. She can wear it around outside and its cloth so it’s not uncomfortable inside either. I recommend this 100%, you will not be disappointed.

The holiday season is for giving, decorating and setting your dream table for a lovely Christmas feast. I love to sew and wanted to make DIY craft ideas that I could give to my guests after the festivities ended. I made this lovely burlap table runner for my Aunt Henrietta, she loves lace and has the frilliest home deco you could imagine. Her house looks like a french poodle family lives there, so this lttle number went down well.

I wear blue jeans every day, it is my uniform. After a while, the jeans get worn out and have holes. I don’t ever want to throw anything away…especially old clothes, so I try to find ways to upcycle things. I needed a gift for my friend who owns a vintage shop, so I made a sunburst 1970s retro rug for her shop and I love the way it turned out. It’s not very complicated to make but it does take time to cut out and sew the fabric pieces together. The result totally worth the time and my friend and her customers love it.

My daughter went off to college this semester and needed a new laptop case. A hand sewn laptop case is a great DIY gift idea for the student in your family.

These darling DIY kitchen towels are so cute and functional. They have buttons that fasten around your range or your fridge. They are a throwback of the 1970s style and a great gift for your special friend with a retro kitchen. I made some for my friend who is a vintage appliance dealer and she begged me for a dozen more for her showroom.

My daughter needed a new makeup bag, so I thought I would give her something crafted from my heart. She loves sewing but had kind of got a little disinterested in it. I made this gift as a surprise and it worked. We are making a holiday party dress for the Christmas dance. So glad we will get to experience that together.

I love the vintage retro style in the home, and nothing makes a better housewarming gift than a Partridge Family-style floor cushion. I attended my friend’s housewarming last week and really loved bringing her this DIY handmade gem. The entire room was filled with oohs and aahs as she pulled this cheerful gift out of its wrapping.
