    I am new to this forum so maybe this has been discussed before. I am making potholders, potato bags, purses, and mug organizers for Christmas. Anyone have any other ideas!

    Bag tags are popular in the stores now too. They are over sized luggage tags, used to help locate baggage on the airport carousel, or in other circumstances where all of those black bags look the same LOL
    They don't necessarily have the window in them for a name/address label. They are just a distinctly colored tag, hopefully one that no one else has. I put one on either side of the handle of my bags :wink: :D:D:D

    A nice set of placemats (maybe with matching napkins) is always nice. Or a table topper. Also, I have given wall hangings for Christmas gifts. Pillows too.

    My kids got some cute pillowcases for Christmas one year that my Aunt had painted snowmen on them. They still use those thin see through things!! They loved them. I would think just the pillowcases like you see people making would be cute for kids!

    The round quilt is from Cheryl Phillips Quilts without Corners. It uses a 10 degree ruler.

    After my son paid 20 some dollars overweight for my beloved old teal colored suitcase set, I gave it to my daughter in Texas for car traveling. Then DSIL gave me a set of very light, black ones, which I almost lost on the baggage ramp in my home air port. Everybody in America seems to use black luggage.
    So like you, I've made some long, oval brilliant ones (to match my clothes, vanity I'll admit, but pretty) and also make them with straps just long enough so that I can pull them through each other to lock them on the baggage.

    So far I've made a quilt, sweatshirt jacket and quilted calendar holder with calendar. Now I need to make Pj's and embroider some towels.

    I've made several lap robes, a Christmas tree skirt, a tote bag, homemade teddy bear, doll, pillows and a few kits to encourage our (new to sewing) DGD with small things like hair scrunchies and clothes for the doll complete with bits of fabrics and embellishments.

    How do you make your key holders? Do you have a pattern?

    When all of you who are making mug rugs for gifts and also giving a mug, do you buy a mug first or make them and then purchase a mug?

    A couple of days ago I posted picture of a Christmas card holder. This was fun because I could experiment with some of the different block patterns without committing to a whole quilt, and i got to cut fun shapes out of felt (who doesn't love that....)the holder is set up so the block is at the top, then below it has 4 pockets, embellished with said felt shapes, which can be used to hold Christmas cards or if you like, ribbons, tape, etc or if you really want to have fun, stuff the pockets with cookies or small candies. Super easy!

    I think covered notebooks and composition books are great. Everybody always needs something to write in/on.

    I really love your picture of the quilt. Tell me about that spiral with all the bright colors.
