Scrap Gifts with a Bonus

Another great homemade gift that can be made from scraps are simple zipper pouches.  These can be made in a variety of sizes and shapes.  Make them extra special by filling them with candy, notions, toys or other personal items.  I once made a bunch of mini ones for the young women at my church.  They included a keyring on the zipper and a pocket to hold their drivers license. They were a great hit.

Fabric coasters are another way to use fabric scraps while gift giving.  I recently created this fabric coaster tutorial using the AccuQuilt Go and leftovers from my Over the Rainbow quilt.  Found in my Crumb Quilts book.    These would be great with a mug or bottle of your gift recipient’s favorite drink.
