24 Xmas Gift Tutes For Last Minute Hand Makes

Stuck for last minute gift ideas but want something handmade and personal?

Enjoy this updated Xmas gift tutes post from 2015/2016 that now includes 3 new tutes and a pattern I've shared with you in 2017.

Click through to each of the tutes - they're all easy makes you can make in anything from an hour to a day, maybe a couple of days for the quilt and table topper/wall hanging depending how fast you work.

In the 2015 line-up below is one of my most popular tutes - Quilted Cushion With Hidden Zipper Tute - this year I've created a new tute showing you how to hand quilt your pillow cushion front alongside an updated and even easier Hidden Zipper Tute.


Have a happy handmade Christmas :D

  1. They look a really impressive collection when viewed all together like that! Maybe it is time to start feeling a little festive - I will finish writing the Xmas cards this afternoon! Lynne.

  2. So many alternatives, I wish I had time to make at least a few of these. I especially love the fabric coasters. Thank you for sharing at The Really Crafty Link Party. Pinned!

  3. Great tutorials. Thank you for sharing !
