12 DIYS of Christmas! Last Project for Christmas Eve!

I've had SEW much fun seeing all these fun project ideas this month! What's awesome is that most of them are great for creating for other occasions as well as Christmas by choosing different fabrics! Versatility is my favorite adjective. And this LAST PROJECT is just that! This super cute Sharpie Caddie Roll is a great way to give these fun & colorful markers AND it would be SO SIMPLE to adjust the size of the holders to fit other supplies! Have a painter in your home? Give a great collection of new brushes inside this convenient roll up! Know a crotchet or knitting nut? This is a perfect way to keep needles & hooks of different sizes in one easy to grab & go place! Even most seamstresses use a group of marking utensils specifically for their sewing projects, let them keep them all together and keep kiddos & hubby's hands OFF with this cute caddy!
We hope you've been inspired to try these or other fun handmade projects to give this holiday season! And we wish you all a Merry Christmas!!

12 DIY's of Christmas! Last Minute Projects to Make & Give!

We're ALMOST THERE YA'LL! The biggest holiday of the year is TWO DAYS AWAY! But there's no need to fret, even if you're behind on your gift buying/making we have great ideas for the last minute makers out there! Like this Holiday Hoodie! It's an alteration of Jenn's Camper Cowl and its looks super simple! Use a cozy Flannel (25% OFF right now!) for the inside to make this EXTRA comfy!

Who doesn't love a good MUG RUG? Pretty much no one that I've met. Use this tutorial for making fabric twine then follow the simple instructions HERE. What could be a better last minute gift for a Coffee or Tea lover than this adorable Festive Mug Rug, a fabulous new mug (check out Anthropologie for designs like this one), and a bag of gourmet coffee or a box of specialty tea! I just LOVE a themed gift! You can even make a fabric gift bag with one of the prints in the mug rug for an extra special touch. We shared an awesome tutorial for that on our Facebook Fan Page! (Like us!)

Here's one for the Boys! This adjustable Bow Tie is a great project to have in your arsenal. It will come in handy the next time you're shooting family portraits, for school picture day or any wonderful event that your little lad needs to look his best for! Pick a fun fabric that will make him laugh or keep it classic with a stripe, check or solid!
Find the full tutorial on the Honeydoodles blog!
HAPPY (last-minute) SEWING!!
