Simple Handmade Gifts

Nothing says Happy Birthday, Merry Christmas, or “thanks for being you” like a handmade gift. Even that hard-to-shop-for or “she has everything” kind of person appreciates a piece of art that came from your hands. So here are a few simple handmade ideas that won’t keep you sewing till 2am. Click on the images below for step-by-step tutorials.


  1. I came looking for the bean bag chairs-I found so much more. I will be back to look and send friends-thanks would still like the bean bag chair ideas!

  2. I have looked all over on how to sew bias tape, I believe I have found it. I have been staying away from any project that includes bias tape, but I have been in need of new potholders and after reading on sewing on bias tape on this site I am going to give it my all. I have been teaching myself to sew and so many projects here that I want to try. Thanks!

  3. I’m not sure why but this website is loading very slow for me. Is anyone else having this problem or is it a problem on my end? I’ll check back
    later on and see if the problem still exists.

  4. Does your site have a contact page? I’m having problems locating it
    but, I’d like to send you an e-mail. I’ve got some creative ideas for your blog you might be interested in hearing.
    Either way, great website and I look forward to seeeing it grow over time.
