    Everything in this slideshow

    • Shoe Flower Clips

      These pretty shoe accessory clips jazz up tired shoes in minutes. Made from recycled strips of fabric and covered buttons, the flower clips are an easy craft and a fashionable Christmas gift.

      Editor's Tip: Make the flower into a brooch by attaching a nickel pin back instead of a shoe-clip blank (both available at crafts supply stores).

    • Easy iPod Pouch Gift

      Give a friend a place to store a treasured music player. Made with decorative fabric, a button, and a swivel hook, this protective pocket is the perfect gift to prevent scratches and to add style to an iPod. Plus, it's easy to make!

    • Christmas Coffee Cozy Gift

      Help friends and family keep their drinks warm with a festive thermos cozy made from an old sock or sweater sleeve. Cut a section of fabric to fit the coffee mug, then add holiday-inspired details using buttons and felt. Using fabric glue or a few stitches, adhere the embellishments to the cozy.

      Editor's Tip: Depending on the fabric, you may need to hem the ends to prevent the cozy from raveling.

    • Creative Laptop Case to Give

      Make a personalized laptop cover using a tea towel for a fashionable gift in minutes. Cut the tea towel 2 inches beyond the top edge of the laptop. Press the top and bottom sides under 1/2 inch, repeat, then sew a 1/2-inch hem. To make ties, cut two 8x2-inch strips of scrap fabric and place right sides together. Sew 1/2-inch hems along the two long sides and one short side. Clip the corners, turn right side out, press, and topstitch the edges. Pin two strips to one short side of the laptop cover four inches from the outside edges; sew. Fold sleeve over the laptop, then determine the best placement for the ties. Fold under raw edges of the ties and sew in place.

    • Velvet Monogrammed Pillow Craft

      Monogram a toss pillow for a friend this Christmas. On a solid-color pillow cover, hand-tack velvet trim in the shape of her initial using matching thread. For a no-sew option, use fabric glue to draw the letter and to adhere the trim. Once dry, put the pillow form into the pillow cover.

      Editor's Tip: Before sewing or gluing, draw the letter onto the pillow with tailor's chalk as a guide.

    • Felt Coaster Gift Set

      Create a set of pretty flower coasters for a quick and easy Christmas gift. Using our pattern as a stencil, trace the flower shape onto sheets of felt and cut out using scissors.

    • No-Sew Felt Candy Package

      This candy wrap makes a yummy, handmade stocking stuffer, and there's no sewing required. Download the illustration to use as a guide. Cut a rectangle from felt. Line the felt with a square of stiff fusible interfacing and a top layer of bamboo batting (both available at fabrics stores). Place candies or small gifts on the batting, roll up the felt, and tie the ends with ribbon. Snip the ends using scissors to create fringe.

      Poinsettia Blanket Handmade Gift

      Create a gift that will add a touch of Christmas to any room. First, download our free pattern and enlarge it to the desired size. Trace the flowers onto white felt, the leaves on green, and attach them to a large piece of brown felt using fusible web. Complete the poinsettia by attaching a few brown dots of felt to the center of the flowers.

      Editor's Tip: If possible, choose wool-blend felt (a mix of wool and rayon); it is more durable than synthetic felt.

      Embellished Towel Gift

      Add bling to a set of plain tea towels for a thoughtful Christmas gift. To add sparkly embellishment, such as the twig design shown here, iron a rhinestone transfer (available at crafts or fabrics stores) onto a smooth-texture towel. Check the manufacturer's instructions before you begin.

      Editor's Tip: Choose a simple rhinestone design versatile enough to span the seasons.

      Monogram Wine Bottle Gift

      Present a bottle of wine to a friend this Christmas, complete with a stylish, personalized cuff. Measure the circumference of the wine bottle and add 1/2 inch. Cut two pieces of fabric to this measurement. One piece should be 3 inches wide, the other 2 inches wide. Add iron-on backing to each, and write a monogram or message on the narrow fabric using acrylic paint and stencils. Attach the wide strip to the bottle using tacky glue; let dry. Glue the remaining strip on top, leaving a 1/2-inch border on the above and below. Cover the seam between the two fabrics with decorative ribbon.

      Make a funky coaster or doily set from scrap fabric for an inexpensive and easy gift this Christmas. Tear thin strips of fabric, roll them up like a snake, and coil tightly into circles. Pin the strips in place and use separately as coasters, or stitch a few together for a unique doily.
