In our previous blog post, we told you our favorite ideas for last-minute holiday projects to make for loved ones. Well, the holidays are upon us and frankly, there isn't a lot of time left to start something new. However, there is time for last-minute gift shopping—there's always time for last-minute gift shopping!
Every good sewist needs a great set of notions. And this year especially has seen a lot of new crafters enter the fold, so it’s the perfect time to make sure they’re properly equipped. Most of the gifts below will easily fit in a Christmas stocking, but we also included some larger gifts for those recipients on your "very nice" list!
The adorable Thread Cutter Caddy ensures a space place for all your tiniest notions. There's a nifty thread cutter in the handle, but we especially love the magnetic sides for holding tight to pins and needles!
Designed to fit either the index finger or thumb of either hand, Thermal Thimbles protect fingers while ironing. A small but absolutely essential notion for quilters and sewists.
Wool felt balls are perfect for adding a cute accent to crafting pieces. They add a darling touch to wreaths, stockings, garlands, pillows, quilts. The Kimberbell Wool Felt Balls include 18 balls of varying sizes and come in two colorways—Sugar Plum (seen above) and Winter Wonderland, a classic, neutral mix of white, cream, and soft grey.
This cutter has two interchangeable guides—one for curved slash cutting and one for straight slash cutting. It's a nifty device that makes cutting fabrics a breeze, and it's comfortable for both right-handed and left-handed crafters.
All these new notions need a safe place to live after they've left the Christmas stocking. Pick up one of It's Sew Emma's adorable Rotary Cutter Cases, which have enough room for small scissors, thimbles, needles, seam rippers, and more.
THE VERY NICE LIST
As we said at the top, this year has been flush with new crafters learning how to sew and quilt. We're sure someone on your list is just getting started on their sewing journey. This starter kit has all the basic tools every quilter needs—a Quilters Select rotary cutter, Quilters Select quilting 6" X 6" ruler, and Quilters Select 18" X 24" rotary cutting mat.
The name doesn't lie—the Magic Pressing Mat really is pure magic. Made of 100% wool, this thick mat is the perfect pressing surface for ironing out embroidery, quilt blocks, sewing pieces, and garments. The magic is in the density and the wool, which effectively presses out the wrinkles on both sides of fabric.
This small but powerful kit features Kimberbell's innovative designs including Duckbill Applique Scissors, Sharp Snips, Precision Fine Tip Tweezers With Blade, and 4" Micro Tips. Each piece is made with the finest steel and double loop rings for a comfortable hold—the Cadillac of embroidery accessories!
