Sewing Stocking Stuffer Ideas

It can be hard to guess someone's fabric taste or pattern wishes, but there are lots of nifty gadges that fit perfectly in a stocking! See this list of sewing stocking stuffers and find something unique for all the sewists in your life. #sewing #stockingstuffer #giftguide

It’s that time of year where I’m swearing that NEXT year, I’ll either buy all my gifts or start making them in July. I’ve been looking for small things to slip into zipper pouches & tote bags for the sewists in my life, and thought I’d make a list of sewing stocking stuffer ideas. I tried to balance cheap options with a little pricier ones- my family tends to treat stockings as another place to stuff presents instead of for smaller items. I’d love to hear if I missed any of your favorites! As always, it’s great to go check out your local quilting store, or suggest your significant other does, but I also understand that sometimes you’re up at midnight, trying to knock the rest of your list off, and want to order off Amazon with 2-day shipping.

They’re a great way to try out a new hobby, especially if someone on your gift list has been saying “I’ve always wanted to try crochet/sewing/embroidery” or talking about how they wish they had something to do, other than scroll on their phone, while they relax at night. If you really wanted to be generous, you could gift a craft kit with a little coupon for free babysitting, if they have kids, too! All of these craft kits are off Etsy, so not only are you giving the gift of creativity, you’re supporting small, handmade businesses as well.

Free DIY embroidered snowflake ornament pattern to stitch up and gift this year! Embroidery hoop ornaments are easy and fun to make, and this snowflake embroidery design uses a simple back stitch that anyone can sew. #diychristmasornament #christmascraft

With about a month and a half left until Christmas, you have plenty of time to stitch up a few ornaments with my free DIY embroidered snowflake ornament pattern! Sewn with a simple back stitch, this would be a perfect first embroidery project for someone who has always been wanting to try it out. I added sequins and seed beads just for fun, since I had a bunch left over from this ornament that I made last year.

I designed this as a part of the 2017 Ornament Exchange & Blog Hop! This year, there are 47 amazing bloggers participating in the exchange. The rules of the challenge were simple: be partnered with a fellow blogger, create a handmade ornament for $15 or under, create a tutorial, and ship the ornament off to a new home.
