Here are handmade gift ideas for Christmas that you can make for your family and friends. I don’t know about you, but my favourite part about Christmas is getting together and giving friends and family beautiful gifts. We thought what better way to add that special touch by giving gifts this year in something handmade that they can love and keep forever.
We are also all about doing our bit for the planet here at Plush Addict, so these Christmas project ideas are also eco-conscious, so you can use them year after year.

Let’s start with our reusable gift bags and tags! The bag pattern comes with 3 different size options and is a super eco-conscious way to avoid all that wrapping paper going to landfill this year. With the chalk fabric panel, you can even use the gift tags over and over too! We have a video tutorial on how to make these super easy tags here.
These two projects are part of our free projects promotion (valid until 18th July), which come whizzing into your inbox when you make a purchase from our Christmas shop. In the Christmas shop, you’ll find the fabrics we used too, Santa Express from Makower.
Why not go even BIGGER!?
Save Santa any confusion this year and make this gorgeous personalised sack.
We have made this one with a medium weight calico and Dashwood Studio’s Festive Friends collection.
Get your hands on the Santa sack tutorial here.
Here is another handmade gift idea for Christmas. Makower has also provided us with some beautiful bag projects. Go shopping in style with these fab bags or maybe pop all your gifts in them when you’re visiting family and friends.
This bag and matching pouch made from the Scandi collection is another fabulous handmade gift idea for Christmas featuring houses, deers and beautiful trees or there’s a grey snowflake option – the fabrics are available from our christmas shop and the pattern for the bag and pouch is available here.
Makower has also uploaded a free pattern to make a bag with the classic collection. This everyday messenger bag is perfect for dashing around the shops in the christmas rush and perfect as one of the handmade gift ideas for Christmas! The pattern is available here and the fabrics are in our christmas shop.
The final pattern from the Makower website is this fantastic stocking! The Santa Express range is so super cute and the stocking panel even comes with matching tags to personalise. Not to mention it’s a huuuuge 50cm tall! The instructions are on the Makower website and the fabric panel is available in our Christmas shop.
We also made a stocking with the Forest Friends collection from Dashwood Studio. We love these contemporary prints featuring woodland animals getting set for the big day. The panel to make these are on our website here.
