Christmas Gifts to Make

No Sew Wrap

This is one of the easiest things you can make.  Absolutely NO SEWING!!!  ZERO!  All you need are some pins, scissors, and a tape measure.  Here's how to make it:
Use 1 1/2 yards of fleece.  Fold it in half lengthwise.  Place a pin halfway up the length on the folded edge.  Cut along the fold up to the pin.  On both of the short ends, cut 2 inch long fringes. And that's it!  

Quick and Easy Cell Phone Pocket Scarf

This one takes just a little bit of sewing that can easily be done by hand.  Cut a 36 by 8 inch piece of fleece.  Cut 1 1/2 inch fringes on the short ends of the fleece. Cut 6 inch squares of fleece in a coordinating fabric.  Stitch them on three sides leaving the side that is away from the fringes open.  No need to fold a hem on the pockets, fleece does not fray.   

Fleece Mitten Ornaments

This one is a little more difficult.  I used a pattern.  I printed out a mitten shape on my printer a little larger than what I wanted my ornaments to be then I cut 4 of the shapes, stitched them on all but the cuff sides and stuffed them.  Then I hand stitched the cuff sides with the ribbon inside that seam.  Then I tied the ribbons together to form the hanger.
