Quick Gift Patterns

Posted by  ·  April 14, 2009  ·  Last Updated: April 14, 2009

As many of you know over the last two years I have posted some tutorials for things that make great gifts. I find myself making the crayon roll and tissue holder over and over. The thing is that  when I am ready to make a quick gift I never can remember the measurements and details so I have to go find the tutorials on my blog.  I was thinking how nice it would be to have a little reference guide to keep handy by my sewing machine for when I need a quick gift. So let me introduce you to my Quick Gift Sewing patterns.


All the patterns fit into a plastic case so they can stand nicely by your your sewing machine and then fold away neatly for storage.


The plastic calendar case comes with two patterns. You will receive a reference guide for the crayon roll, zippered pouch and a plastic case for $3.99 plus shipping. Visit my shop to get yours!

Future patterns will be downloadable for $1.09.

Looking for more gift ideas? These steno pad covers are another great gift idea!

    It's truly very difficult in this full of activity life to listen news on Television, therefore I only use world wide web for that purpose, and take the hottest information.
