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!




It's nice to look around your sewing area and see things you've actually made with fabrics you love! These pin cushions can be as simple or complex as you want to make them and you can chose the fabrics. Cute and useful, they're a great addition to your sewing supplies or a gift for a quilting friend!





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!



Pompoms are great fun, easy and awesome add-ons to lots of things: hats, scarfs, key-rings, bags, there's loads of things that need jazzing up with a pompom. Plus, it's a great way to entertain the kids on a rainy day. 

Yo Yo's can make some pretty amazing things too. Appliqued onto clothing and bags, yo yos are a real game changer if you're looking for easy ways to make your clothing and accessories colourful and unique!



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!
