    I am making five quilts for Christmas and luckily three are going to be small so I can get them done in time. πŸ˜‰ Love Heather Ross, so thank you for the chance to win some!

  2. says

    I have started making sock monsters for our eight grandkids but I’m not sure that I’ll have them all made by Christmas. Keep your fingers crossed for me.

  3. says

    still trying to decide if i’m sewing anything for christmas…which probably means no :). i’ll blame the new baby!

  4. says

    I’m sewing a bunch of patchwork throw pillows for relatives, I already finished my first ever quilt as a gift to my 3 year old son, and I’m going to sew my husband and son matching flannel PJ pants! Oh and embroidering (monogramming really) some towels for my husband’s grandparents!

  5. Sherrill Glick says

    I plan to make clutch purses with my embroidery machine. I also plan to make lined wool mittens and maybe some pajama bottoms.

  7. says

    With a newborn at home, I will be lucky to get a baby blanket done and maybe a holiday cardigan for my daughter. …maybe a simple zip pouch or something.

  8. says

    I’m working on some zip pouches for friends – but I’d also like to treat myself and make a nice infinity scarf – knitted or corduroy, haven’t decided πŸ™‚

  9. says

    I am !! I’m going to be making two quilts (one for my sister and one for my grand-mother) and I’ll be making an IPad cover for my SIL ! I haven’t started yet…

  10. says

    I’m not making any gifts myself this year. I am too pregnant to do anything comfortably except sit in my recliner and do some handstitching. Hoping to finish my Hexy MF before baby comes in 3 weeks!

  11. says

    I have already made 2 sets of pillow cases for Christmas gifts. I think I need to make some more for next year! Thanks for the chance to win!!

  12. says

    Handwork was always my mother’s forte, but not so cmuch mine. In fact, hand seing is my nemisis. So no nothing is handstitched this year. However, I hav challenged myself and have a Christmas redwork pattern I plan to do (lunchtime Stitch & Bitch at work)in an attempt to conquer this.

  13. says

    I wanted to have made more handmade gifts this year but…, hehe. I have plans to make a few zippered pouches and two pincushions.

    Thank you for a wonderful and generous giveaway and a chance to win. Two winners! Woot! Woot! You Rock!

    For Christmas this year I’ve made- a skirt, handwarmers and I’m working on finishing a quilt. Thanks for the fabulous giveaway!

  15. says

    I’m tending a sick kid today, so won’t be able to enter all the giveaways πŸ™ But happy when yours popped up in my reader…sweet! I am sewing a spiderman cape for my middle son. I know, spiderman doesn’t wear a cape, but he has no idea of that fact πŸ™‚ Trying to keep my list smaller this year so I can enjoy more w/ my kids!

  16. says

    I don’t like deadlines, so I don’t sew Christmas gifts. I’m thinking of giving my brother and his new wife a certificate for them to commission a quilt from me though.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  17. says

    Yes! Well, semi-handmade! πŸ™‚ I did embroidery on t-shirts for my nephews and niece and will be making a subway art embroidered shirt for my mother-in-law with her grandkids names! I also plan to monogram some scarves!

  18. says

    Yep, trying to make a boat load of things this year. I’ve already finished 2 quilts, but I have a bunch of smaller items left to do – placemats, mug rugs, journal covers, and ornaments. These items aren’t large, but high in number!

  19. says

    I’m sewing minky blankies, animal hats, some soft toys, and a couple of iPhone wallet/pouches. Then I finally get to get back to my second daughter’s quilt for her new bed!

  20. says

    I want to make some scarves for my sister and some nice pjs for my 2 yr old, but I’m not sure if I will have enough time!

  21. says

    I’m aiming to make a stocking and zipper pouch for my sister. I wanted to make her a quilt but that was a bit too ambitious (I still plan to do it, just not for christmas THIS year).

  22. says

    Gosh, all my gifts are homemade this year! Pouches, potholders, placemats, scarves, you name it! What have I gotten myself into….thanks for the chance!

  25. says

    Ooh oh oh!! I LOVE this fabric sooo much. You have the best giveaway ever! πŸ™‚

  26. says

    I love Heather Ross fabric!!!

    I am making handmade gifts for all my kids’ teachers and my friends and family. They will be getting either a shopping tote, a zipper pouch or hand warmers and hot packs with lavender.

  27. says

    Right now I’m just working on a tie for a friend. I don’t know if I’ll be making other things as gifts, I’m really behind in my planning this year.

  28. says

    Oh I love that fabric so much Caila. I’m sewing a bag for someone and a doll for my daughter. I don’t do a whole lot of sewing at CHristmas since two of my kids have birthdays and don’t like handmade gifts anymore ….

  29. says

    Ohhhhh…I want some of that! Purdy!!!! I’m not doing any sewing for gifts this xmas πŸ™‚ I’m only making goodies for myself…lol. I know, sounds bad but it just worked otu that way thsi year. I am knitting a gift though.

  30. says

    Not this year. Last year, I hand blanket-stitched felted letters onto fleece blankets for family members. I am making about 20 placemats for meals on wheels though, technically, they are not X-Mas gifts.

  31. says

    lovely blog! I will sew a bit, but less than most years as I am 3 mo. postpardum—tea towles from the popular spoonflower tute and an ipad cover for MIL

  32. says

    If I can get my act together, yes! I’m going to make some simple blankets for my kids and I want to make a coin purse for my grandma. Thanks for the chance to win! krystinajiron [at] gmail [dot] com

  33. says

    I was trying to sew my first quilt for Christmas this year, but think I need to give myself a little bit more time! The recipient’s birthday is in April, so I’ll aim for that, instead. πŸ™‚

  34. says

    I LOVE far far away fabric!
    I am sewing for a new grandson due in January, so I am not sewing for any Christmas presents this year.
    Wonderful giveaway!

    I am making patchwork linen napkins for my siblings, pajama pants for my kids, and Big Butt Baby pants for my new niece.

  36. says

    Wow! These fabrics are AWESOME! Thanks for having a giveaway!

    I made my sister an infinity scarf this year our of jersey knit (finally learning how to sew with knits!) And, I made an oven mit and some zipper bags.

  37. says

    I’m sewing bags for my sister, mom & grandma. I also plan on covers for 24″x24″ pillows for my niece & nephews. I’ve thought of more, but my list will be too long for the time I have left!

  38. says

    I have a long list that includes doll sleeping bags, wallets and stockings, but seeing as I have no elves, the list might get shortened! Thank you!

  39. says

    How darling.
    I’m sewing pillow shams to match a sampler quilt that I made for my sister. I’m making a Christmas quilt for my daughter.

  40. says

    I’m not brave enough to sew handmade gifts, unfortunately, but if I can get this Amy Butler origami bag pattern to work, I’ll make one for a family member as a gift!

  41. says

    I’ve finished a quilt for my grandma, a Christmas quilt for…. I’m not sure who yet… and I’m working on a Swoon quilt using Flurry!

  42. says

    I have been wanting to make either some cute soft dollys for my girls or animals…can’t make up my mind. Of course with fun colorful fabric.

  43. says

    What a generous giveaway Caila!! I am drooling over those bolts of fabric! I am sewing a quilt for one of my boys that didn’t get made last year( but the other 5 kids’ did!). I am making a tree skirt today and would like to make the 8 of us a stocking but am hoping to at least make one for my 19 month old one because I bought her a flimsy one last year for her 1 st Christmas knowing I was going to make her one. So, not too many gifts but certainly Christmas sewing!

  44. says

    No, not sewing any homemade gifts this year, unfortunately. I wish! Last year I made mug rugs, but I am focusing on a quilt for my baby girl who is due in March. πŸ™‚ Thanks for the giveaway!

  45. says

    First of all I love Heather Ross! Pretty please?
    And yes, I am making too much for Christmas. Scary as there isn’t much time left. 2 dolls with clothing, one quilt for my husband, tons of felt food for a new kitchen set and painting some wooden puzzles. All of these projects are needing to be worked on still! Yikes!

  46. says

    Rockin giveaway, Caila! Hmmm well I hope to be doing some holiday sewing. But I still seem to think I have lots of time…. So have no plans as of yet. πŸ˜‰

  47. says

    I am sewing a stuffed owl. I had hoped to do some others, but it isn’t working out.

    aldwedgi at hotmail dot com

    sorry it posts hubby’s name

  48. says

    I just finished my mother-in-laws quilt. It is my own design and I think it turned out okay. It is definitely a weight off my shoulder having it done.

  49. says

    Greetings from northern Canada!!!

    Yes, I’m making handmade items this Christmas, I’ve already started. I have about 10 cross stitch ornaments stitched and I’ve started (today) sewing them into ornaments. I’m also hoping to have a Christmas table topper finished but I’m not holding my breath on that one.

  50. says

    I’m making a doll quilt for a friend and some leggings for my daughter. There might be a full size quilt on my list, but only if the baby starts sleeping for more than 45 minutes at a time…

  51. Rachel Horton says

    I’m using some tutorials from Film in the Fridge… pillowcases for my grandmother, Christmas pillowcases for my kids, reversible market totes for my daughter’s teachers. Also hoping to make some sleeping bags for my daughter’s baby dolls! Thanks for the giveaway!

  60. says

    I don’t think I’m making anything handmade this year, but something last minute could come up! steeplechaser29 at yahoo

  61. says

    My original goal was to sew a Christmas quilt for this season…but time has gotten away from me. So I’m not really sewing anything at all for gifts…just working on my BOM which will end up being for me.

  62. says

    I am sewing two purses, two capes, and two baby doll carriers for my two daughters! (and this gorgeous fabric would really come in handy for some of those projects … they love those colors!)

    Yes. I am working on drawstring bags a la Jeni from In Color Order and rice bag neck warmers or bed warmers. My longstanding WIP is a quilt I started 3 years ago for my best friend. Maybe she’ll get it this year. Here’s to hoping at any rate. PS. She is such a good friend she just cleaned out her fabric stash and sent me her remnants of Heather’s Goldfish in Bags. She is that good of a friend. Thanks for your giveaway.

  69. says

    I’m sewing some pouches for sewing buddies! Little, fiddly Japanese-style ones with hand-sewn zippers :)) Thanks for the chance at this very generous giveaway!

  70. says

    I’m sewing quilted potholders for my sisters, mom, and mother-in-law. Ahem… at least that’s the plan. I do have assorted thrift-store finds as backup, in case I don’t get them done (but I do have everything cut out, and that usually is where I procrastinate the most!). Also, I’m hoping to finish Liana’s quilt, but have already decided that would make a fabulous first birthday gift, too. πŸ™‚

  71. says

    Hi! Last year I made 5 quilts and that was wayyyyy too much. This year I’m knitting a few hats, sewing some gift card holders, a pillow and a couple of small doll quilts and dog mats. That’s enough!! : )

    I’m going to try and finish a wall quilt for my grandma for this christmas, but we’ll see if it actually gets done this year ~

    I try to give only handmade gifts at Christmas. This year I made about 30 jars of jam and fruit butters to give away, but I’m also doing some sewing. I’m making a purse for my grandmother, an infinity scarf for my sister, and some yet-to-be-determined stuffed toys for my niece and nephew.

  82. says

    I’m sewing for myself this year. Doesn’t that sound terrible?! Last year I was so busy sewing for other people it was too stressful & then when you see they don’t use the gifts, disappointing.

  83. says

    oooh…I’m drooling over the fabric. I made a tree skirt and am working on an advent calendar for my kiddo’s. I also have this alphabet fabric I want to make into something for my daughter’s to refer to as they learn to write words…

  85. says

    My goal this year is to make all the gifts for family and friends by hand, that means alot of sewing! Thanks for the giveaway

  86. says

    I’m sewing pencil bags for my kids’ teachers and some other bags for people on my list. Also, sewing matching skirts for my 10 year old and 4 month old daughters and a dress for my 10 year old. There are lots of things I would like to make for my other kids too.

  88. says

    Most of the christmas gifts I am giving this year are hand knit or embroidered. I am giving a pair of handmade animal ears to my neice and nephew. I’m hopeing to get some crafting in for my kids and hubby on the sly once the gifts I have been working on have been given and we are back home. πŸ™‚

  89. says

  90. says

    I’ve sewn a LOT of gifts this year…some clothing, toys, aprons and potholders…and am almost finished with a quilt for my oldest. Whether it gets done in time for the 25th is another question entirely!

  92. says

    I am working on cloth I-spy books, and would also like to make fleece slippers for my 1 year old daughter if I have time. Thanks for the giveaway!!

  94. says

    I am making a set of items for my nephew- a rag quilt (he informed me that the one I made when he was a baby no longer covers his feet….he is five now), a matching quilt for his bear and a coordinating pillow case. I am also working on a baby quilt for his soon to arrive sister. However, luckily she isn’t due until February-I don’t think that quilt will be done before Christmas!

  102. says

    So far on my list I’ve made several stockings, pouches, pillows, and have started on the quilts! The big things are always the most put off and now I’m on a tight deadline! Thanks for the giveaway!

  105. says

  116. says

    This year I’m trying to keep sewing to a minimum… except… I’m making a quilt for my brother, bow-ties for his boyfriend, and a holiday quilt for myself! HA! But everyone else gets crocheted or woven things this year. ‘Cause that’s less time-consuming (har-har) ;–)

  117. says

    Lovely fabric! Thanks for your generosity. I’m sewing a table runner this year and hoping to sew some doll clothes for my daughter.

  124. says

    I am planning to make dolls/stuffies for three of my little cousins out of their grandfathers clothing. He passed away in July. They are all under 6 and I want them to remember him.

    I am sewing a soft camping fire for my little, a “hope” pillow for my sister-in-law who went into remission this year after battling cancer, and two pillow cases for my neice and nephew. I also make matching pajama pants for both my boys every year and this year is bitter sweet since my oldest is graduating high school and joining the marines, so we don’t know if he will be home next year πŸ™

    Love these fabrics! I’m sewing/knitting/crafting lots of gifts this year — a cowl for one sister, make-up bags for the other, a wine cork wreath for my parents, a stuffed giraffe for my friends’ kid. I always seem to over-estimate my ability to actually get stuff done, though!

  127. says

    Ahhh, am drooling here! I sew almost everything for Christmas – infinity scarves, doll clothes, a guitar strap and some coffee cozies this year.

  128. says

    I am not sewing but I am knitting some scarves for a few special people. Thanks for the giveaway! Amy @ gasudimack(at)sbcglobal(dot)net

    I’ve made a lot of Christmas decorations, so I’m running short on time. Probably something small I’m thinking stuffed robots for my sons.

  135. says

    I am making a knitting bag from The Sometimes Crafter, a kindle cover and a craft organizer bag for my daughter. hopefully I get it all done! I have a stash of heather ross I am hoarding I would love to add these prints to it!

    I had planned to be sewing, but foot surgery has caused those plans to go astray! But I still hope to get a little done. I have some kitchen towels and potholders that I’m wanting to sew together for handy hanging. And lining for some little crochet bags that I did. Maybe a table runner for my daughter, if time permits!

  137. says

    Wow, I’m crossing my fingers! I’m making a clutch for my best friend, and a butterfly quilt for my niece! I hope I can finish before Christmas!

    I am trying to do mostly handmade gifts this year. I am making some monogrammed pillowcases, coin purses and a quilt for DH.

    Hello! My family is spread around the globe, so every year we make and send each family a tree ornament. Also made my daughter a hot water bottle cover with a toasty toaster on it. And will likely make a few last minute gifts for my friends too. So that’s what I’m up to. Tannks for the lovely giveaway. berene(at)happysewlucky(dot)com

  151. says

    Yes! I made a jewelry roll for my mother-in-law and a casserole tote for my mom. I still need to make some kid gifts for my little cousins. I’m thinking a fabric swatch matching game. Thanks for the chance to win! akmajor (at) gmail (dot) com

  153. says

    Oh my goodness what an awesome giveaway!!! Hmmm, yes I am sewing some handmade gifts it’s just a question whether or not I’ll get them all made πŸ˜‰ I’ve got a couple of 241 totes. I’m hoping to make some jammies for my kiddos and a couple of dolls…and infinity scarves. Thanks for the opportunity!

    I made a quilt for a gift this year but that’s about it. Normally, I do more but just didn’t have the time this year.

  155. says

    I started stressing too much about making gifts this year, so I gave myself the grace to just say no and buy gifts instead. I am making crocheted snowflakes for gift toppers

  156. says

    Squeee! What an AWESOME giveaway! πŸ™‚

    Sorry about the internet shouting… Heather Ross giveaways just do that to me. πŸ˜‰

  159. says

    I am doing mostly handmade. I am making some purses, cloth shopping bags, reuseable sandwich bags, PJs, Nook cover, doll clothes, a stocking ans some baby toys. That is all I can think of off the top of my head without going to get the list.

    I have intentions of making a few gifts this year, but my energy lately seems to tell another story. I’d like to sew a few hot pads, napkins, placemats and maybe even knit an infinity scarf or too. Slightly ambitious?! πŸ™‚

    I ran out of time to sew gifts, but I’m making Korknisse (cork people with knitted hats and sweaters) to go with almost all my store-bought gifts!
