Default Easy Items I can make to give fellow workers

Good Morning!

I am looking for some easy things I can whip up to include in my Christmas gifts to the people I work with. I saw some tutorials for chapstick holders, hand sanitizer holders, etc so I was thinking of things like that. I used to have a link for a thread on some of things people sold at craft fairs but somehow lost the link and cannot find the thread.

Any ideas? Everyone here is such wonderful resources! Some one said on another thread that they consider this board to be their quilt guild and I whole heartedly second that emotion!

Liz

I made some of the coaster that you use small strips pressed in half and wrapped around clothesline then zig zag.

I just saw some log cabin Santas on the 'Pictures' part of this board that were cute.

Here is a simple useful item. I cut a six inch squares of non slip weave shelf liner, zig zag it to the back of a six inch pretty print fabric square. Instant jar lid grabber opener thing.

Lavender Sachets, I don't know if you live somewhere that gets cold weather, but scarves (even decorative) ones are nice.

RedGarnett222 posted this link awhile back. They have a long list of tutorials on lots of different things. http://www.quiltingboard.com/links-r...r-t268532.html

I give my co-workers pot holders - I use orphan blocks and everyone is very happy to receive them. I give two away and they always comment on how they have a little quilt from me.

If you make pot holders...fold them in half, sew around three sides, leave one edge on top of a long side open to slip on pot handles.

I made little bud vase wall hangings for my husband's coworkers. It's an easy way to have a fresh flower or two near your desk, and it was a great use of scrap fabric.
