Small Projects for Quick Gifts

Small Projects for Quick Gifts

 

I have a basket. I keep little handmade gifts in it for those last minute gift giving occasions. But as you can see… it is empty.

I recently received a package from Nifty Thrifty Dry Goods full of vintage embellishment goodness so I made up quite a few quick gifts.

A little snap T and this package of sweet trims …

And I have an adorable little gift.

I wrote about making the pillowcases in myIt’s In the Details – Embroidered and Trimmed Pillowcases post.

And then there were theHandmade Gift Bags -Mini Canvas Tote Bags I made.

A couple of plain hand towels become something more special with just two little bits of trim.

And a small canvas apron from Dollar General gets a make over.

All trimmed out with polka dot ribbon, ric rac and a tiny ribbon rose.

And in no time at all my gift giving basket was much more full.

Of course any of these gifts can be part of another gift… or the whole thing. Depending on the occasion and your budget. Either way, when the date for that shower sneaks up on you or you find out a new friend has a birthday TOMORROW you are prepared with something handmade. :)
