I am doing bowl cozies for family and friends this Christmas. I will be demonstrating how to make them at my quilt guild in November.

I'm making large (10 x15) hot mats for several people. I got tired of having to find 2 mats to put under larger casserole dishes!

Our ladies class at church do gift baskets for our shut-ins. I’m thinking this year I’ll make scented sachet bags out of small blocks.

I'm making those, too! Could make them quilted, crocheted or with denim.

One year I made Sweet Pea Pods by Lazy Girl Designs. I think those were better liked than some of my others. They're pretty easy to make a big batch of. And they're useful.

Another fun and useful thing to make for my co-workers, was iron cozies.

Here is the thread I posted on this board on how to make a Chap-Stick cozy:

I also did a demo at our guild on this fast gift idea.

Please share your tried and true method of making bowl cozies. I received one from a quilting friend and use it every time I have a bowl of Hot soup. My bowl cozy is made of lofty batting...please advise what you have found to work well. I will be gifting these this Christmas.

I just made a bunch of eyeglass cases, criss cross wineglass coasters, and mug rugs to give away. A few years ago, I made everyone key fobs; a previous year it was zipper bags.

umm...I have an embroidery machine and I used to make folks who started working where I did, an embroidered butterfly to hang in their cubics...it was interesting to see that folks always hang them up! Rug mugs would be fun too if you work in an office. umm...I also like getting home made holiday cards from some of my friends...they just used little fabric scraps stitched onto paper to make them.
