I bet some people are wondering what they should make with their swaps - the answer is anything you want, of course! But I thought I'd share a few ideas anyway in case some people are stuck. Here we go!
|Ticker Tape Rainbow by teaginny|
You could make a ticker tape mini quilt or even a pillow cover! Really the possibilities are endless for this one. The original tutorial by Amanda Jean of Crazy Mom Quilts appeared on the Sew, Mama, Sew blog in 2009 and can be found here.
|Star Quilt, Pot Holder by coco stitch|
Pot holders or any other type of mini-mini quilted object! Think coasters, mug rugs, or even a set of small mini quilts.
|My Pillow for MQG Pillow Swap by VeronicaMade|
How about a fun pillow cover? I'm kind of in love with the one above! It's up to you whether you want to include the pillow insert or not (we want to make this as accessible as possible); just make sure that it is a standard size so that if the giftee has to find one themselves they can!
|Scrap Tote Bag by chloeandme|
What do you think about a scrappy tote bag, zipper pouch, or something else that would be fun to travel with? The above bag totally rocks my socks!
These are just a few ideas for things that you could make - and no, your gift does not need to be something quilted! It's all up to you. If you need a little more inspiration I came across this post on TipNut which has over 50 ideas (with links to tutorials) for using up scraps and remnants; check it out here.
I hope you guys have a fun time dreaming up projects for our little swap - it's going to be so fun!
