Emilee emailed me her fantastic last minute gift ideas. These are amazing and still completely do-able before the big day.
First up, an embroidered bow pendant.
How adorable is that? She found the tutorial in a Better Homes and Gardens magazine.
Next, for the new babies on your Christmas list- a car seat blanket.
Cute and highly useful. She used the tutorial from Running With Scissors.
Last up is pillow covers.
Emilee modified a tutorial she purchased from Etsy. There are tons of free pillow patterns online, as well. I swear every year I'm going to make this one from From the Blue Chair. There's still time this year, right?
Also, every year I try and make at least one new ornament for our tree. They also make great last minute gifts along with a plate of treats. Here's my long list of all the ones I am considering making this year-
Button Tree Ornament
Felt Nativity Ornament
Simple Quilted Stars
Scrappy Stocking Ornaments
Love Where You Live Ornament
Christmas Bird Ornament
Have a merry Christmas, everyone!
