Quick Gift Ideas-Week 1

 Here we go with ideas on fast and fun gift ideas to make for the holidays. If you have one (or two!) you would like to share, please email to me to post on the blog.

Nothing is more popular than making your own grocery shopping bags. Tuck them in your car trunk and save a tree. The best part of making these bags as it is a great Stashbuster and perfect for those larger prints you may not use in your other quilting projects. I find they are just the ticket for bottled and heavier items those plastic and paper bags break through. Make a set of three for a gift that will keep on giving. Also, these are a novel way to wrap other gifts!

You can download the tutorial pattern at the bottom of the page.

Here is another nice gift for the person who has everything. Place these scented pine cones on a nice tray or tin for gift giving. It will fill the house with the lovely scent of cinnamon and are a nice project to get the kids involved in (the cinnamon method #2). Since all the windstorms recently, there seems to be plenty of pine cones to be had.

For you sweet lovers, this recipe is for you. Thank you to TwoSistersKitchens for link!

Need to make a TON of small gifts for teachers, service people, neighbors or co-workers (and don't forget your quilting buddies!)? Read on how Ellyn's Place makes Candy Sleighs....

Now that you have some projects to get to, there is no time to cook. How about a savory crock pot soup recipe? This is a copycat Olive Garden recipe from Cooking Classy. Add a tossed salad and a crusty bread and you will have a meal that satisfies during the upcoming colder weather.
