Default Christmas gifts for a young sewist.

I am looking for ideas for my granddaughter who is a beginner.... while I don't much care for the term "sewist" I can't call her her 'sewer' either She has a simple machine and a sewing box full of notions. She is only 11 so big items would be in the way in her little room. Her mom has a rotary cutter so she can use that under mom's watch. I think when she comes down next summer I'll have her made a jelly roll race quilt. Any ideas for gifts or projects would be appreciated. I have had her made criss cross coasters, pillows & PJ pants. Thanks!!

How about a precut kit for a small quilt or table runner

Are you looking for things to make her or for things she could make? How about a Quillow, pillow cases, little zippered bags for her special "stuff", or quilted scarf. Here are some things from a Friday Night Quilting board P.J. Party that I used to belong to. There are several things here that I think she could make.

What about a tote bag? I recently made 3 for Christmas gifts from fabric & that pet mesh that you can buy at Home Depot. They turned out cute (you would probably have to help her with the pattern).

Pillowcases are easy and simple to make.

A doll quilt, simple scarf, ornament, fleece items?, pillow cases, small tote. Does she need sewing notions, or other items?

An across the shoulder tote for school books so she doesn't have to carry them.
