There may be only ten days left until Christmas, but you still have enough time to sew a gift for your sister, mom or BFF. Seriously, you can do it! We’ve picked five easy patterns that don’t require any fitting or complicated sewing. And remember, homemade gifts are better than store-bought!
Make Butterick B6250 out of French terry just like this inspiration cardi from Sundance and the recipient will looooove you. Choose a soft knit that looks good on both sides.
2) We love the thought of this waterfall vest in a lightweight sweatshirt knit—so cozy! Use Butterick B6244 but omit the sleeves.
3) Blanket capes and ponchos are trending big-time this season, and this pattern (Vogue Patterns V9038) will sew up lightning fast. Look for soft, blanket-like wool and fleeces.
4) Robes are always popular gifts. This kimono-style robe pattern (McCall’s M7297) lets you have fun with print mixing and color blocking.
5) A girly apron is perfect for your friend who loves to cook. Try McCall’s M7305 and look for fun cotton prints at your local fabric store.
