I’m not typically a last-minute type of person, but I always have last-minute shopping to do during the holidays. This morning, as a looked over my list, I realized that I still don’t have a present for one of my girl-friends. I think I want to make to her something. I thought I’d share a few of my ideas in case any of you are in a similar situation and want to weave some last-minute gifts! Do you have any suggestions for last-minute gifts? Let us know in the comments and share your handmade gift-giving stories!
A Bracelet using the No Warp-Ends Kit
One of the things I love about the No Warp-Ends Kit is that you can whip out several pieces of the same size with the same kit set-up. That means faster present-production if you have more than one gift to make! Plus, finishing is so easy and fast. I may make a bracelet like our Changing Seasons Bracelet with wire (fun fact: you can get the ebook for this project free with any Mirrix Looms purchase of $10 of more. Learn more here.) or the perennial favorite, the Checkerboard Cuff Bracelet. Get a free instructional ebook for this project here.
A Mini Tapestry
This one is a little more time consuming, but a tiny tapestry, like our Scribble Landscape or Heart Mini Tapestries, is such a wonderful gift that the lucky recipient will cherish forever. I’m not sure I have time to make one for my friend this year, but I wish I did!
A Wrap Bracelet
Wrap bracelets are great because they are both super fast and really easy to finish. Try one on silk like this Crystal & Bead Wrap Bracelet!
