Gifts for Fellow Quilters: Make them a project kit!

Make your friends one of three project kits as gifts with free tutorial and printable card!

Do you know what is my absolute favorite thing to receive from a fellow quilter? Their scraps! Why? Because there’s treasures in there I would have never dreamed of finding on my own! So put your scrap bin to good use and make a project kit (or three!) for your quilting best friends this Christmas.

As quilters, we all know we love to make things. Curate a project kit to make a zipper pouch, potholder, or set of coasters and it becomes the gift that just keeps on giving!

I’ve put together 3 different project kits you can make and gift to your friends. Simply cut the required fabrics, add any additional hardware needed, and print the free printable card so the recipient knows where to go for the tutorial. Tie it all up with a pretty bow and voila! Not only will this be a gift any sewist will be delighted to receive, but it also helps clean out your scrap bin just a little bit. Happy gifting!
