Christmas Boutique Goodies to Make
It’s that time of year. We need to make small gifts for friends, things for stocking stuffers, Christmas boutiques, and my guild has a boutique coming up.
I thought about what to make for a long time, and here is what I came up with for my favorites. They’re small, fairly quick to make, and pretty universally liked!
Ear Bud Case
Small Snap Purse
Shhhh… don’t tell anyone, but I carry one of these in my handbag with a few ‘seat covers’ in it. Yes, I’m a bit obsessive that way. We don’t need to discuss that further, but they’re lovely and light, so it doesn’t add any weight to my bag. This is a folded cardboard pattern I bought at Ben Franklin. But here is a link for a very similar free tutorial.
Of course I love these. Recently my husband made full use of one, and found it invaluable. It isn’t easy to find a thing to make for a guy – so take note! I wrote up a very inexpensive pattern for what I think is the best size and design. Mine has channels so the rice doesn’t go all in one lump, and a removable case for washability.
Fabric Corner Bookmarks
Haven’t made these yet, but I’ll make a pile for stocking stuffers and boutique. Will display them in a big glass jar. I’m pretty excited to have yet another way of using my 5” charms. And talk about fast! Here is the free tutorial.
I will be attending a sew-in with my guild and plan on making so many lovelies. What is your favorite, quick boutique item? To make? To buy?
May your spool be endless,
