Before you embark upon doing this, you must remember that the recipient will not understand the time and effort that went into making it. If you know that and are happy to continue then read on!
Sewing for Women:
We’ve tried to think of patterns that a crowd pleasers for your friends and family and that are ALSO not too complicated for us to make. These are tried and tested patterns, that have been very popular so you know you are in safe hands! Click on the images to find out more about each pattern..
Sewing for Men:
There are some really fantastic options here, again these are really popular patterns. The quadra jeans are a pretty involved make so these would have to be for a close family member who you knew would appreciate the blood sweat and swear words that went into making it!
Sewing for Kids:
If you have a little one to sew then it’s time to open up your scrap drawer and start hunting. Kids clothing is the perfect way to use up leftover fabric, and save you a few pounds too!
If you need to make a few presents then we have some fantastic unisex patterns that can cover a lot of bases. If you like to batch sew then one of these could be a really good option. You buy one pattern and can make gifts for the whole family!
Sewing for a fellow craft lover:
If you’ve got a fellow creative on your gifting list then here are three great pattern options. We absolutely the Samphire duffle that comes with loads of internal pockets to help keep your project organised. The studio Tunic is another fantastic option as this could be given to someone that likes to sew, bake, garden, sew and many more!
Sewing for the accessory fan:
Gifting an accessory is a safe bet, you aren’t going to get the size wrong and it’s a relatively simple sew. We’ve shortlisted some of our absolute favourites to feature here and hope that they cover most bases.
Sewing for the animal lover:
Who wouldn’t want a handmade dog coat?! If you have an animal lover in the family then I can tell you now they’d love one of these!
Sewing for the tricky gifter:
I had to have a few patterns in this section didn’t I?! There is always one person who is really hard to buy for. I think any one of these would go down well..
