I bought this kit at the Festival of Quilts this year and plan to make a few for gifts. The lid lifts to put the box in rather than being just a cover over the box (like the ones that come up in Pinterest). If you made it with a solid lid, it would make a useful container. Perhaps make a matching pair for a dressing table?

Craftsy has over 42 pages of free patterns. I made the iPad stand that is on page 5 & it turned out really cute. I made a co-worker one but instead of using card board inside I used some of that plastic material like people use for garage sales, etc. You can get sheets of it at Home Depot. She wanted the stand to hold up recipes when she was cooking & if it gets wet it won't matter or fall apart like the card board might.

How about chap stick holders for stocking stuffers? I just googled "chap stick holder tutorials" & this was the first one that came up. There are a lot of tutorials online.

Sorry Pete. Not sure why as I get straight to it when I click on the link in the quote in your post.

Try going to their site www.pinflair.co.uk and search for 'new boutique tissue box'. That worked for me too.

Soup bowl cozies, My family are getting these for Christmas. This has been a request since I made some for my sister last year.

Osewme- I can't find what size Ipad case this makes. I have the larger one. Do you know?

Two ideas: 1. For families with young children, an early gift: wall hanging of Christmas tree or menorah with buttons or hooks in strategic places for young ones to hang little ornaments (Advent Calendar) or "flames" (Hanukkah) to count down the days. 2. For anyone capable of hanging up their clothes: quilted hanger covers, fitted to the hanger for hanging clothes on top of to prevent them sliding off or getting shoulder bumps, or larger than fitted for going over the tip of seldom worn clothes to protect them from dust. You could also add little straps and snaps to hold spaghetti straps in place.
