With the holidays just around the corner, I thought it would be fun to showcase some quick and easy gift ideas you can give to friends, neighbors, co-workers, and oh yes…even your family! You can enter to win eBooks from http://www.youcanmakethis.com/ and learn some fun new techniques, tips, and ideas not only for the people on your list, but also creative ways to decorate your home! You Can Make This has created a free download for some fun gift tags. Aren't they cute? Each of them coordinate with ideas found as part of the DIY Gift Giving Series videos that can be found on the YCMT blog, as well as designs and patterns found at SWAK Embroidery and You Can Make This.

I love the ideas that have been shared so far, like this super cute glass block keepsake! See the video how-to below and see more helpful video how-tos on the YCMT blog.

I also really like their Blooming Headbands and my other favorite idea that's been shared in their DIY gift giving series is the adorable holiday door hanger. You can get the directions for both for free, along with several others, at You Can Make This and whip one in time to add to your home.
Besides great ideas for DIY gifts, there are chances to win hundreds of dollars in gift certificates just for watching the videos that are part of the DIY Gift Giving Series and answering a question on the You Can Make This blog!
I've got my own You Can Make This Giveaway to share with you today! Two of my readers could WIN a great giveaway bundle would include instructions for making Personalized Name Pillows, Peasant Tops/Dresses, and Easy Fit Pants including both patterns sized for (6m - 12) and (Teen/Adult). Between all of those, items can be made for both boys, girls, men and women. Here is a little bit more about what each of the sets that come included in the giveaway bundle.Personalized Name Pillows: The warmth and comfort of a favorite pillow…made better because it’s personalized for someone you love! The soft patchwork paired with a contrasting front panel and name applique give this pillow a high-end look at a price you’ll love.

Comes with pattern, alphabet cut-outs and easy instruction. Celebrate someone special with a pillow they will cherish! Made to use with a general home sewing machine.


I LOVE LOVE LOVE these pillows, I think this is currently my favorite pattern at YCMT.
Portrait Peasant Tops and Dresses: This pattern shows you how to create multiple forms of the classic peasant: an elongated top, empire-style long or short dress, and more. Add ruffles, tiers and more to showcase the flattering lines of your creation even more. Even better, a doll pattern is also included so your princess and her doll can look amazing together!
Easy-Fit Pants - Girls & Boys! Sizes 6m-10 (Doll sizes, too!): These versatile pants can be made in a range of lengths to get just the look you are after. They are designed for maximum comfort and wear-ability, with fit that is relaxed yet oh-so-stylish. The wide legs make an excellent canvas for embroidery, applique or fabric painting. Also included are patterns and instructions for adding ruffles or contrasting cuffs that really "stand out!"
Easy-Fit Pants for Tweens, Teens, and Adults: Men & Women XXS-3XL: Now you can make Easy-fit Pants for everyone! These comfortable, versatile pants can be made in a range of lengths for all seasons and times of day. They are designed for maximum comfort and wear-ability, with fit that is relaxed yet oh-so-stylish. The wide legs make an excellent canvas for embroidery, applique or fabric painting. Also included are patterns and instructions for adding ruffles or contrasting cuffs that really "stand out!"

You can see the name pillow I made at that link.

Annette said...

I do like the name pillow. It's well detailed which is important!

In the link I gave you I included some ways that it could be improved, but really my improvements just offer more variety for the maker, not improving details given. I hope that makes sense. I made mine a pillowcase instead of a pillow since it was given to a 3 year old. It would have been great to get alternate directions in the original pattern.

I'm making family trees for our parents and grandparents.

My favorite would be the easy fit pants because I have been looking for an easy pattern to make my daughter, husband and myself matching bottoms for Christmas morning. This is a great find! Thanks for posting about this site!

AG'smoma said...

I made a cross applique tshirt for my soon to be sister in law for Christmas.

From the blog, I really like the blooming headbands. I love to wear headbands, but they end up giving me a headache after a while, these look great since they are fabric only.

Ticia said...

I love the Mini-Kimmy pattern, that's probably why I've bought it. I also love the Captain Jack (I think that's what that one is called).

Ticia said...

I'm making dolls for my kids and felt mail-boxes.
