Great Gift Ideas and a Gift For You!

The Holidays are sneaking up on everybody so we thought it would be a good idea to give you some quick and easy project ideas. Below are pictures of the Leanika Canvas Panels by Dena Designs. The entire pattern and directions come on a 1yd panel. There are two different patterns, one being a tote and one an apron. The tote straps are adjustable and the apron fits most sizes. They retail for around 10dollars so it makes for a fairly inexpensive gift. So if you are running late on your present making/buying this is a great idea that doesn't take much time at all!


GIVEAWAY CLOSED
It just so happens we have an extra apron panel around here so comment with your favorite Holiday gift you enjoy making for others and you could be selected to win this apron panel! Don't forget to include your e-mail in your comment. Winner will be chosen on Thursday, Dec. 10th. Good luck!

Leanika is pne of my most favorite new Free Spirit designs. So pretty. I love making flannel pillowcases for gifts. Everyone who receives them loves them. So soft and cozy during those cold winter months.

WooHoo!! Hoping I can win this!! I love this new line and really need to get my hands on some of this!

I guess my favorite gift to make for people is pillowcases. You can make them fit the individual and add their names and make them so personal!

I love to make treats--cookies, cheesecakes, you name it. One year we made apple butter for everyone and canned it. Yum!

My favorite gift to give is a set of re-usable shopping totes. They are so easy to sew up, and I think they are really useful (and helping the environment!). Thanks for the giveaway! (evelyn.chambers@gmail.com)

I love to make totebags and place a great read inside. This is a way to share two things I enjoy with those I care about.
Great Panels

This year the common gift for family members is a rice-filled bag, that when microwaved with a cup of water, makes a long-lasting heating pad. Good for backaches and keeping those cold feet warm in bed.

My favorite gifts to make (atleast for the ladies) are purses. This may be considered weird but I really enjoy trying to portray someone's personality through the bag I create!

I enjoy making quilts for the people I love. I also make bags and aprons, and crayon books.

Pillowcases, tote bags, and aprons are a few of the easy projects I like to make for gifts. If I have more time, I enjoy knitting socks for gifts.

Thank you for hosting this giveaway.
