DIY HOMEMADE GIFTS
How about a few ideas for gifts you can sew?
Just so you know…….here’s another blog I totally thought I had already featured. I feel like a heel…….She made me the most beautiful lanyard for The Creative Connection…..she deserved more attention than a Thank you. But I thought I had featured her………..she is so talented, so of course I thought she was already on my A – List.
Trish is one of those people who can sew! And not only sew, but she does a ton of patchwork sewing.
Now I don’t know much about sewing…but I can imagine that patchwork stuff would be the grand daddy of them all……….
But she’s so nice, she shows you some pretty detailed tutorials……that I imagine would help you IF you knew how to sew…..unlike me. She also has patterns you can purchase. She was one of my Creative Girls Holiday Gift Guide sponsors.
My mom used to make Christmas gifts for us. Usually Pajamas. It was never a secret though, because if you remember me telling you before…….she was one of those cranky sewing moms. So I would hear her muttering under her breath or quite loudly in her sewing room. But I’m sure Trish isn’t like that and she has a few cute ideas for gifts.

The Creative Connection Lanyard
Here’s a shot of those lanyards she made for us for The Creative Connection. She also posted this on Get Your Craft On……..and even linked to me. I knew I loved her. Aren’t they cute? I love mine.
I’m tellin ya…….she is the queen of patchwork. This scarf below would be a great gift. This certainly isn’t anything you could buy in Target. I’m pretty sure she has a pattern on her site you could grab.
You could also use up a few of those scraps of material.
Fabric Covered Journal
Trish has a whole list of tutorials and don’t forget to check out her patterns. While you’re there, leave her a comment to surprise her about being featured. I love it when you surprise them!
