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.

If you’re in the shopping mood, check out my round-up of craft & sewing books to gift too!

Craft kits are such a fun gift to give; not only do they get to make something but they don’t have to dig around and shop for any of the supplies! 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.
