Five Sewing Inspired Christmas Gift Ideas

Christmas trees are popping up, festive tunes are playing and we are planning our Christmas makes, including some gifts to make or give the sewists in your life.

We've rounded up our favourites to help if you need a spot of gift inspiration:

Toiletries Bag

We're getting creative with our gifting and the Toiletries Bag is ideal as both a cute little gift and as a creative form of gift wrapping. We love the idea of popping a small gift inside and then the bags being used time and time again too for a zero waste Christmas gift!


At this time of year, we are all about the quick makes and our Headscarf pattern is perfect to make beautiful stocking fillers. Plus it's a great way of using up scraps of fabric from your stash too!

Hebden T-Shirt

If you want to make clothes for your friends and family, the Hebden T-Shirt is our go-to! The pattern includes two different versions, one for men, one for women, it's a simple make that means you can all coordinate in style. We have a Stitch School class that can guide you through if you need a helping hand and it also includes a Mini Hebden pattern for children!

Stitch School Class

Talking of Stitch School, our online sewing classroom, there are a few thoughtful options you could give as a gift. A Subscription truly would be the gift that keeps on giving for your lucky loved one as it includes access to all our existing classes, and we regularly add new ones so members can keep discovering new tips and techniques. Equally, if you know that the person you are buying for wants to learn how to overlock, or wants to learn to sew clothes, we have individual classes that would be perfect too. Spoilt for choice! To purchase this, we recommend buying a gift voucher and including a note to tell your loved one which course or subscription you thought they might love.

Poppy Dog Coat

We couldn't forget about our furry friends! Why not whip up an adorable Poppy Dog Coat so that your dog doesn't feel left out on the big day. Plus it would make a thoughtful gift for anyone you know with a beloved puppy. This beginner-level sewing pattern is a super fun make and you can watch how Lisa sews it if you need a tip or two in our LIVE Sewalong!
