DIY Phone CaseDIY Phone Case


How adorable is this tiny phone tote? You will cut three fabric scraps from your collection to fit the sizing measurements provided.

It would make a thoughtful gift for that friend who is always rummaging around in her bag searching for her phone!

Fabric FlowersFabric Flowers


I love receiving flowers as gifts. If you have a flower-obsessed loved one, why not make a gorgeous and unique floral gift instead of sending them real flowers?

You can use the same fabric scrap style or switch it up for a more whimsical look.

You will also need floristry wire like this, cardstock, and your sewing kit. These would bring me so much joy if I received them as a present.



Everyone needs a few good scrunchies. If you are like me, they get lost so easily that you can never have enough!

This project is simple and fast. These would be great in birthday party goodie bags or as stocking stuffers!



I love reading but hate bending the pages of my books. With these gorgeous bookmarks, your reader friends will never need to dog ear their precious pages again!

The detailed sewing instructions provided make this a great project for novices. The final product has a cute, vintage vibe.

DIY Tote BagDIY Tote Bag


A handmade tote bag is an excellent gift because of its sheer usefulness. If you are like me, you probably have someone on your list who is impossible to shop for.  

This would make a wonderful present for that person.

This one is doubly environmentally friendly because it uses an old t-shirt for the outer material and a 40”x40” scrap fabric piece for the lining.

You will use cotton webbing to create the straps. I have used this option before and think it would be perfect.

Scented SachetsScented Sachets


These doll-face sachets are both visually and aromatically appealing. The cute faces are painted using acrylic paint (this is my favorite, cost-effective option).

You will then cut your scrap fabric into circles and do a quick hem job. Filling your sachet with lavender is the sweetest part.

This gift comes together quickly and makes a great baby or bridal shower party favor.

Lavender is my favorite scent, so I have tried many different kinds and can confidently say that this one smells heavenly!

 Zipper Pouch Zipper Pouch


A lovingly handmade zipper pouch makes a great gift for the traveler in your life. They will adore storing their jewelry, makeup, ID, and extra change in this zipper pouch.

You will use two pretty pieces of scrap fabric from your collection and a 6” zipper. If you need zippers, you can grab them in bulk here to make zipper pouch gifts for all your friends!

 Shibori Planter Shibori Planter


I find fabric planters to be gorgeous and creative. You can easily make some for your plant-loving friends with this no-sew project.

This project requires a hot glue gun. If you need one, you might consider this one, which I have used for various projects and was happy to see that it includes 30 glue sticks.

These stockings would be an adorable addition to anyone’s mantlepiece over the holidays!

You can use a combination of festive or flannel fabric scraps, old t-shirts, and old blankets to make these.

This is a no-sew pattern so you will need fabric glue. I have found that this one holds up well even in the wash!



You would never guess that this stylish headband is upcycled from t-shirts and fabric scraps. I feel like that twisted knot gives it that extra oomph and makes it a must-have accessory.
