Holiday Sewing Projects from Etsy:
This PDF sewing pattern by OrangeCraftsbyKatie makes a nice appliqued travel bag measuring 14″ Х 10.5″ Х 3.2″ finished. This PDF also includes applique patterns and detailed instructions to sew the bag from start to finish. ✂
Anyone who carries a SmartPhone will love seeing one of these padded pouches in their Christmas stocking or as a thoughtful gift at any time of the year. These pouches are the ideal accessory for storing a mobile phone or a MP3/4 player. Stitch them together using bright happy fabric prints for kids, or coordinate classic florals, stripes and modern designs for adults. Project instructions include three closure options and the option of adding a handy wrist-strap. When finished this pouch measures 10 cm x 14 cm (4” x 5½”). This PDF sewing pattern was featured in Sewing World Magazine December 2013 issue.
The gift bags are easy to make – even for beginners! Each bag measures six inches tall and the bottom is eight inches square. This does not include the ribbon handle. They are a perfect size for gift giving! The bags are made from felt that is backed with fusible interfacing. Buttons are used for eyes on the sample bags. Another option would be to cut eye circles from felt or embroider eyes directly on to your fabric. Small children usually under the age of three are at risk to choke on buttons etc.
This eight page PDF e-pattern includes full size patterns, materials list, instructions written in English, and step-by-step photographs.
This nifty gift box is also a practical storage bin that would be wonderful for stray Lego, markers, small toys, small books, iPods, etc. This bag designed by Elizabeth Wyatt is a whimsical package that is part of the gift itself. The Gift-n-Store bag has a built-in bow on top and converts into a great looking fabric basket.
A paper sewing pattern straight from Etsy seller and designer Susan Marth to sew Santa gift bags for bottles and treats during the holidays. Some sweet whimsical applique make these bottle bags unique and festive. A drawstring closure makes it easy!
This PDF quilt block and tote pattern by Very Berry Kerry called “Candy Cane Love” provides fully labelled pattern pieces to make three different foundation paper pieced blocks. Two of these blocks join to make a candy cane heart block which measures 6.5″ x 6.5″ finished. This pattern can be enlarged if needed for a larger holiday tote bag size.
