    Thanks for all the great ideas guys! Now I just have to make a decision on what to make. I really like the placemat/coaster idea... might go with that. I also kinda like the purse/tote bag idea, I'm just not sure if anyone I plan on giving gifts to would actually use a quilted purse. I'll have to update y'all later on when I make a decision on what I'm doing, and what patterns I'm gonna use. Again, thanks everyone!

    I think totes and potholders are great ideas. I can never have enough of either of them.

    There is always cell phone pockets and mp3 bags too. They are really cute done in today's fabrics. A little biger gift could be a lap top computer tote bag.

    Amy Butler. com has some cute things there that are small projects.

    And one last suggestion ... How about cute quilted head bands? You would just use some elastic around the back, or make ties on the ends, kinda like apron ties only smaller. Sew a tiny hair comb to the under side of the front so it stays in place.

    How about those beautiful pincushions using old CD's. There's a tutorial somewhere, just can't recall exactly where I saw it.

    I think Pittsburg Pam made one just recently and posted in pictures

    Being on a budget myself I know how the costs of fabrics can overwhelm you but please consider these ideas to help. You can get used clothing to make scrappy quilts no matter what size (throw size is usually used watching tv) Old sweat shirts make great pillows especially if your friends and family have favorite teams, hobbies, or collections. If any of your friends sew you can get many ideas for pincushions. Thrift stores usually have treasures on a thin budget. I hope these ideas help.

    My Granny always made a new set of hot pads for us every Christmas. I sure do miss getting new ones, mine are getting a little worn now. I may have to take up her tradition!

    I'm tired of paying $4 to $5 for a roll of wrapping paper that barely covers my gifts. Today I needed to wrap presents for both of my grandchildren, one boy and one girl. So I couldn't use the same wrap. Rather than spend money on the store boughten wrapping paper, I decided to make pillowcases out of my stash and wrap the presents in the pillow case. It worked beautifully. I think the kids will be delighted to receive an extra gift in the pillow case. I think I will do this for everyone at Christmas.
