To round out our series of easy Christmas gift ideas we wanted to share some additional ideas. I love Anita's secret gift idea she includes in her tutorials for gift tags and ornaments.
Small wall hangings, banners, and table runners all make wonderful gifts. We have many patterns for these over on Arbee Designs, but today I wanted to share with you some quick easy ideas that you can make literally in minutes if you have spare blocks you already have on hand. Practice pieces also work well. In particular, I like using frames or embroidery hoops to finish them off and give that perfect picture look.
Have you ever made a book cover? They are simple and fun - and they can be made from practically any spare block or quilt. Cutting up a quilt you started but never really liked, is a whole new excitement to enjoy!
Anita has a great idea for recycling totes. With plastic bags out, we are required to bring our own bags for shopping. Often we gather branded totes and we can decorate these to give as gifts or use ourselves. Of course, you can also start from scratch by making your own tote too.
