You don’t have to be a DIY genius to put a handmade spin on gift-giving this season. Whether you go 100% custom-made or get a little help with Sprout Patterns’ White Glove sewing service, your friends and family will notice your attention to detail when choosing the perfect design (or creating your own!) to match each of their unique personalities. We’ve rounded up our favorite giftables that are guaranteed to warm hearts during the holidays.
For the #1 Spoonflower Fan
Whether you’re shopping for a designer or maker, you can’t go wrong with a Spoonflower T-Shirt. Designed by community member Cynthia Frenette for the t-shirt design challenge, anyone can wear a piece of Spoonflower without breaking out the sewing machine!
For the Traveler
The Portside Duffle Bag is wanderlust approved! Create a customized version for your road trip partner at Sprout Patterns but don’t forget to make one for yourself.
For the Designer
Do you know someone who is ready to take their ideas from paper to pattern but they don’t know where to start? Give them the gift of design this year with the Spoonflower Handbook, written by Spoonflower Co-Founder Stephen Fraser and textile expert, Becka Rahn.
For the Sports Fan
Looking for a quick and easy DIY project for your #1 fan? A no-sew cut & tie fleece blanket will keep any sports enthusiast warm at the next big game. Get ready for tailgating with the full tutorial here.
For the Girl or Guy on the Go
The Portside Dopp Kit will be any traveler’s new best friend. With plenty of storage space and the addition of an outer pocket, it’s easy to see why this toiletry bag is a Spoonflower favorite.
For the Fashionista
Lightweight and airy, a Chiffon scarf will be the accessory that never goes out of style. Double up and go two sided with the Infinity Scarf Fill-a-Project™ template. See the full tutorial here.
For the Photographer
Your photographer friends won’t need to wait until their photos are developed to show off their creativity when they’re sporting a custom camera strap! Choosing from over 500,000 designs in the Marketplace, you can create a strap that best matches their one-of-a-kind personality. See the quick and easy tutorial here.
For the Accessory Lover
Let’s face it: you can never have too many belts! Create a durable accessory with a pop of personality using Eco Canvas and a D-ring. But be warned, if you give a family member a belt, they’ll be asking you for handmade pants in no time!
For the Little One
Don’t let the name fool you. The Basic T-shirt by Brindille and Twig is anything but basic! Your tiny tot will hit the playground in style and with Sprout’s White Glove sewing service, you’ll have plenty of time to play too.
For the Makeup Lover
Do you know someone who can’t leave home without a fresh coat of lipstick? The Portside Pouch by Grainline Studio and available through Sprout Patterns, will keep their favorite shadows, blushes and brushes organized while traveling in style.
Now that you’ve figured out what you’ll be making this year, it’s time to start thinking about the one-of-a-kind way you’ll be wrapping each present! See how we’ll be wrapping ours here!
