Snap bags are always great. There are a lot of videos on how to make them.
This year I am making eye glasses size to fit sunglasses.
They could also be used for rotary cutters.

Cute idea! Thank you. I have a mini-watering can I can use.

I have done these in squares, rectangles, and circles. They are quick and fun to make. My friend uses the round ones I made for her (I made her 12 when she told me what she wanted to do with them) as wine glass identifiers because they fit over the base of a wine glass and leave no rings on her nice furniture.

I was just looking for Christmas ideas the other day and came across some "Bake n Fry Dividers" to protect non stick cooking pans and baking sheets. The pattern can be found at www.modabakeshop.com. Search for Bake n Fry dividers. They looked easy to make, and useful as gifts to friends and family.

What about the little snappy bags made with metal rulers, like this one: http://justanotherhangup.blogspot.co...tutorial.html? I am going to make some as some thank you gifts.

I'm making these neck pillows for Christmas this year. I made a couple for me & DH & we both love them. They would be good for watching t.v., in the car during road trips, on a flight on an airplane, etc. I've also made the rope bowls that everyone seemed to love. The dryer balls were a big hit with the gals at the office during my last Christmas party there.

How about Hostess Aprons? I made one and just went by the picture. If you want to see it, will send a picture. Took about 2 hrs. to make, with several interruptions.

After our quilt Show in 2 weeks, i can give you some more ideas.

This year , for the kids, I am making fleece stockings and filling them with all types of things. Gas cards , candy,
socks. Thinking for the adults I will go a little smaller and just add a card.

I have made French bread baskets or bread baskets, when not in use you untie the four sides and it lays flat. I use it in hotel rooms and on cruise ships. I put my room keys in it and other essentials so I don't misplace these . Check Pinterest for unique ideas.

I made the dog bone style and they were much appreciated.
