    Christmas is approaching and I need quick ideas for things for my coworkers. The girls run in age from 15-48. The lone guy is 32. I thought of quick ornaments but not sure. Not everyone drinks coffee. I considered doing a grab bag of different things and then they can choose what interests them. All ideas and/or patterns are welcome!

    Thank you!

    Have a great holiday!

    Fleece scarves in a variety of colors would be quick and easy.

    Someone posted recently on how to do a neck scarf, sewing the ends together twisted so that it is a cowl you can pull up over your nose or head if desired, or just draped around your neck.

    My daughter made me a long narrow scarf out of fleece years ago, and I still use it. It simply required cutting a length of fleece and then cutting fringe on each end.

    How about some Christmas mugs with cocoa mix with marshmallows inside. Also, dip plastic spoons (nice ones) in chocolate to go with it???????

    Thanks for the idea. There are many new coworkers since I made scarves for them a few years ago.

    I just bought a bunch of "money soaps" from Hallmark to give out for about 10 dollars each. They each one has a bill in it- either 1,5,10, or 50 dollar bill. You use the soap up and get the money. Everyone at our Monday night football group loved them but they threatened to cut them up to find out if they got big bucks!

    For co-workers who drink coffee (don't they all?)make some easy coffee sleeves. Get a cardboard one from your local take out to use as a pattern. I googled the directions but it is really easy and quick. Scraps of fabric. Scrap of batting. I made mine reversible and they really are great and fast!
    For those who don't drink coffee - easy strip quilted mug rugs are good. Again scraps, solid back. I used a layer of flannel inside and pillowcased them for a quick finish.
    Wanna see mine? http://www.artfire.com/users/NewMoonDesigns

    Potholders are nice or how about simple applique on dish towels picked up at the dollar store, everyone has a kitchen and could use these or just add decoration --
