It’s that time of year to start thinking of holiday gifts… and for those of us who sew, it’s time to actually sew them! On this Show Off Saturday, I thought I’d share some of my most successful little gifty projects and the tutorials or patterns that I used to make them.

All of my ‘Gifty Little Things’ can be sewn in an afternoon. 🙂

Last year I made these Pom Pom Pincushions for all of my sewing friends (including my sisters). They are super cute and fun to use… I even kept one for myself!

I made these cute scrappy wallets using a free tutorial from The Sewing Loft earlier this year. There are so many uses for them… including holding other little gifts. It’s an awesome beginner project, or a 20 minute project for a seasoned sewist. See that lanyard? That was made from my free lanyard sewing tutorial here.

Aahhh… the Wrist Strap Keychains. I can’t tell you how happy it makes me to see one of my friends still using their wrist strap keychain even though I gave it to her years ago. Maybe I should give all my friends new ones this year, since some of them look pretty worn out.

This quick and easy canvas tote bag tutorial is my latest addition to the SewCanShe tutorials. This  one with the pretty green handles was supposed to be for me… my daughter quickly asked if she could give it to her friend for a birthday gift. How could I say no?

I made these coordinating Here’s My Heart Potholder and Sew Handy Fridge Towels from two different free tutorials a few years back. It’s another project I totally need to make again. Both of the tutorials are easy to follow and as you can see, make really sweet gifts.

So, what have you been sewing up this week? Did you make something with one of my free sewing tutorials or patterns? I would love to see! Tag me on Instagram @sewcanshe.

Happy Sewing!
