10 Craft Projects for the Holidays


Quick, easy and very useful! Whilst there's different sizes, all of the clam shell cases are perfect for taking around with you in your bag. Whether it's to store headphones to prevent them getting tangled in the rest of your bag, or beauty products, jewellery, once you've started using clam shell cases you wont be able to live without them! 

This would be the perfect project for bits of unused fabric and wadding you have lying around!

Want a project that comes with all the bits you need? These mini quilts from Rachel's of Greenfield come in a beautiful, wide variety, all of which include all of the fabrics needed plus the wadding, quilting design and step-by-step instructions! 

Wouldn't it be nice to have a clock that fits your room theme perfectly? Say no more! We have this super easy clock kit in which you can pick your own fabrics in order to make it perfectly suited to your decor. And if you are looking for a clock with numbers don't worry, you can get those here!

Our beautiful Accents Quilts are designed to be small quilts that 'let the fabric do the talking'. You can use it as a throw, wall hanging or lap quilt to compliment (or contrast) with your decor and make a larger quilt by just adding more packs. The quilts work well with big, bold prints however if you'd like to design your own you can use a range of our other fat quarter packs (be sure to check number of fabrics in packs) and buy the instructions separately. 

If you'd like to learn more about the Cotton Patch Accent Quilts take a look through our Ebook (the quilt featured below is Lagoon).

So beautiful yet so easy! These gorgeous Dragon Hide Cushion kits are very popular because they look so unique. With two different colourways these kits have everything you need to create the front panel of this pillow. These work perfectly with the Sizzix machine clam shell die however, the kit does come with a paper template if you're not a Sizzix owner.

Perfect for small, starter projects and on-the-go crafts, English Paper Piecing is a great sewing craft for big and small projects. How about these coasters? Or maybe a toiletry bag or a wall hanging. There really are so many things you can do with the paper pieces and the outcome is stunning!

These are great, not only because they're quick, easy and fun to make but they're also so useful! Going on holiday, shopping, off to the beach? Once you make one of these you'll be using it everyday. We are currently selling this Tote Bag Kit in the beautiful new seaside range Beachcomber from Makower but there will be more to come soon, so keep a look out! 

This table lamp could be a great addition to anywhere in the home or even at work. Depending on your fabric choice, it could be a sleek and smart office lamp, a bright and warm reading light or even a night-light to keep the monsters away on your youngest's bedside table. That's the great thing about these kits, they're adaptable to each individual, plus they're really quick and easy to make!

9) Sashiko Samplers

Do you love the traditional Japanese sewing designs or maybe you just want to try something new. Maybe you're looking for some small hand sewing to take away with you. Our Sashiko sampler kits are a great small project from Olympus Threads that offer a range of pre-printed stitching lines that wash out when you're done, leaving you with a beautiful, thick thread Japanese design.

How about a bin to match all of your other DIY decor (see above): you could use the same fabric for everything or complementing fabrics from the same range or maybe fabrics of a certain colour scheme to match the rest of your room?

Everyone needs a bin and a lot of the time they can look really out of place and pretty naff. So why not make your own, that you actually want to display and acts more as a decor piece than something you try to hide in the corner. 

We hope we've filled you with a bunch of holiday ideas for you and maybe for the rest of the family to!

Happy creating!
