Make some EASY Christmas gifts!

How are things going at your house as we are now one week from Thanksgiving? I'm sure that the "crisis cleaning" has begun in many homes just like ours! :-)  That is one added benefit of having the big annual clan gathering at our house -- everything gets cleaned and scrubbed thoroughly as we head into this season of blessings.

I mentioned yesterday that I would be sharing holiday gift ideas over the next few weeks, and here are today's fun and simple projects that will make much-appreciated gifts:

Making Potholders from Worn Towels and Washcloths

How to Make a Denim Pocket Potholder

How to Make Quilted Pot Holders with Recycled Towels and Fabric Scraps

Hanging Pocket Tool Holder: Vintage Sewing Tutorial
I want this one for MY kitchen!

10 Clever Dish Towel Crafts

54 Free Apron Patterns You Can Make

What a great bunch of ideas that are practical and look like fun! Hope they help your crew with some ideas. Also, remember that many of these gifts would be much appreciated at the nursing home, VA hospital, by neighbors and in the church kitchen.

Counting my blessings,
Amanda B.
