Holiday table runners make festive decorating a snap, and they're easy handmade gifts. Our free eBook gives you two styles to choose from. One is a Christmas table runner from Kathy Mack done in modern reds and greens with fused appliqué snowflakes. This Christmas quilting project will make your table merry.
Jeannie Palmer Moore's painted wholecloth holiday table runner features a sugared fruit design that looks sophisticated, but is on our list of easy gifts to make. Just draw your design on fabric with a permanent marker, paint with fabric paints, and quilt. Glitter paint adds a celebratory touch.

Christmas quilting projects don't come any quicker than Pokey Bolton's Short & Sweet Candy Cane Napkin Holders. Start with holiday-themed fat quarters or fabric scraps, fuse, stitch, cut, and tie.
Homemade gift ideas for your friends can be as simple and stylish as Elin Waterston's easy handmade gift bags for wine and sparkling non-alcoholic beverages. These bags feature simple sewing techniques and they are reversible!
You can put a little zip in your quilting gifts with Jamie Fingal's Coffee Cuffs with Zippers. Made from felt and fabric scraps, just add a gift card to your favorite coffee bar.
Finally, my favorite homemade gifts are ones that come from the heart—and use up my fabric scraps. That's why I designed Urban Friendship Bracelets that are so easy to make. They're a contemporary adaptation of an old favorite, good for any age.
