November = Small Handmade Gifts

For our pattern project next month I decided to do things a little bit differently. I am a big fan of homemade gifts, so I thought that November would be the perfect time to get an early start on making some of those. (As opposed to staying up all night on Christmas Eve finishing unfinished projects.)

So, instead of buying a pattern for a large project in November we are going to make three small projects, all of which could be used as gifts for the holidays, and all of which are free patterns found online.

Here are the three projects we will be doing. So be looking through your scrap bags for the perfect fabrics for these projects and for the perfect person to make them for (or just keep them for yourself).

week 1 - The Perfect Box Pouch by Indie House
week 2 - Heather Bailey's Headband
week 3 - Mix it up Cocktail Toasters by Sew Mama Sew

Also, we will be doing something a little different with our guest blogging / monthly giveaway. We will have three small giveaways, and three short one week guest bloggers. Look for the giveaways starting early next week.


  1. Awesome projects! I already have the Perfect Box pouch on my To Do list.

  2. Oooh.. can't wait for this to start. I just decided to make some punky pillows for my nieces for Christmas and I wanted to make some of those boxy pouches for gifts too. (If you use insulating batting instead of the interfacing they make great mini coolers for a snack (or bait box for fishermen).
