Christmas Ideas

I thought it would be fun to share some of the creative fun I have found on the Web. I thought some of these would make wonderful fun Christmas gifts. So enjoy these items that I have came across ;)

Another Red letter day for APP :)
For those that love to sew. Here are the fun ideas I found on the web ;)
Enjoy and have fun sewing!!!

I found these little letters and bag to be an awesome idea for the small children in your life. These cute little letters can be made with the brightest fabrics to catch their eyes.. Each little letter also has a magnet inside to stick on any metal surface.. like up on your Fridge for those sweet love notes. They look easy and fun to make from the provided tutorial on the link :) You will find the instructions at
Chez Beeper Bebe.

Wow what a fantastic Apron I found:
The Henny Penny Apron
This has to be one of the most creative aprons that I have found.
I am definitely going to make one of these!!

I found this lovely apron and tutorial pattern at:
Penny Carnival

Boy's Drawstring Backpack
Photos and tutorial found at


I made a backpack for a young girl very similar to this one. I used two of her old tee-shirts.
When it was finished she thought she had won the perfect prize. It was an easy project and she was so happy. As sewers we are not limited to the provided tutorial. You can always use girly fabrics and make one for that little princess in your life.
I know this is a project that I will be doing very soon for my sweet nieces out in CA.

Now here is something that every woman could use. I know I could ;)
This awesome little gift idea was found at

A Manicure Kit

I think this next idea is awesome.. you could make these for every Holiday. They look like they whip up very fast and could be fun to make. You could make one for every month of the year with a theme for that month. Find fabrics that would give you the feel for that event that will occur in that month. For example... Valentines day. You could use heart fabrics to make your top. Fun right???

Hanging Towel

You will find the tutorial at
Kleio's Belly

Here is some fun to be had.

Kiddo's Travel Desk Top
You will also find this clever children's gift idea at
Chez Beeper Bebe.
Run over there and take a look
What fun!

I can see these made with tons and tons of brightly colored and vivid fabric scraps.
I can see this used several ways. This to me is the ultimate way to keep that little one entertained while your away from home. You could add any toy or item in the pockets to make it the perfect on the go toy :)
Have fun creating this clever little tid bit :)
Also please take the time to look at some of of Chez Beeper Bebe's other fun downloads and tutorials. She has a lot of very fun stuff on her blog to make children .

Do you ever need a place to put things close to your front or back door??
I have found the perfect little pouch for you.
It is called :::

Kidlet Wall Pocket - Tidy Tote.

I found the tutorial on JCasa *handmade*

Who couldn't use some of these.. even the guys on your Christmas list :)
I found these fun
Market Produce bags


Tried and True

Last year our sweet and good friend Nadine made some little produce bags very similar to these using fabric on the top of each bag... she used veggie and fruit fabrics. She give them away as gifts and they turned out so darn cute :)
She advised that everyone loved them!!

I am so in love with this.. I was looking for an awesome lunch bag and lookie at what I found!!

Kawaii Bento Lunch bag

You can find the tutorial at:
Zakka Inspired

I don't eat Bento.. but I love this little bag.. how cute!!!

I am sure your bored by now with all my show and tell.. until next time happy sewing ;)
