Give and Give Again Gifts: Deluxe Addition

Everyone who loves to sew loves to get sewing gifts.  At least I’ve never heard otherwise.  If you found my posts from the last two years  (Give and Give Again Stocking Stuffers for the Sewing Enthusiast and Give and Give Again Stocking Stuffers for the Sewing Enthusiast: Part 2 Paper and Tape )  useful you may want to step up your game.  This year I have a few deluxe items for you to add to a stocking or place under the tree.

Luxury Fabrics such as Nani Iro double gauze or Liberty of London Tana Lawn can be used for making garments or quilts.  If you aren’t ready to dole out big bucks for by the yard cuts you can also find fat quarter bundles (consisting of a quarter yard of each print) or charm packs or even bias binding tape.  A quilter might like squares as small as 1.5″ or 2.5″, but for garment makers I’d stick to 5″ squares or larger.

Made By Tags allow makers to take the projects to the next level by adding a personal message.  In this same category you can gift fabric care labels.  Below are just few resources.

For Garment and Accessory Makers:

Namemaker

Dutch Label Shop

Wunderlabel

For Quilters:

Modern Yardage Custom Quilt Labels

 

Learning Platform Gift Certificates

Craftsy, Creative Bug or other similar learning platforms offer makers the opportunity to learn more about their chosen craft or to try a new one.

Time for sewing free from making dinner/washing dishes/watching children/folding laundry.  This can often be the hardest thing for us to find on our own.

Notions / Kits

Jeans notions , bra notions  (I’m not going to reinvent the wheel on this one.  Orange Lingerie has a great list of suppliers (scroll down) and most of them can be found online), laser cuts for applique such as these offered by Shabby Fabrics .  Craftsy offers kits for clothing, bags and quilts.

 

As usual my opinions are my own and are not sponsored by anyone.
