The Etsy Holiday Guide for Crafters and DIY Gifts



Sew Fine Fabric
As a fabric collector myself, I can honestly say I have never seen such an astounding assortment of fabrics!  From mod to vintage inspired to children's designs, in organic and traditional cotton and even organic home decor fabric.. Sew Fine Fabric has it ALL!  You're not going to find this stuff at the large craft stores, so take a look for yourself and buy your fabric from this shop based out of Ohio, where
Jodi has done all the collecting for you.

Get the knitter or crafter in your life one of these handy bags by Krisscraft.  They are full of large pockets for organizing, and some even have matching knitting needle or sewing bags.  THESE SHIP FROM THE UK but they are ready to ship, so if US readers act fast, they may make it in time for the holidays!


Glynt Pottery
Based out of Virginia, Glynt Pottery not only makes these wonderful yarn bowls that are perfect gifts for knitters, but they also have ring keepers and kitchen ceramics.  Check out the very cool ceramic night lights featured in the Baby and Kids Guide.


Beneath the Rowan Tree
There are numerous fun tutorials and patterns available at this store in Northern Ontario.
Pictured below are dryer balls, a girl's twirl skirt and felted animals, but there are also instructions for
satin flowers, mobiles, tie dying and more.  Plenty of ideas for DIY gifts!


Farm Fresh Fibers
Below are just a few of the patterns offered from this Vermont based store.
There are several patterns for felted items as well as a knitted sleep sack.  They also carry
knit items for sale that are featured in the Baby and Kids Guide.


Petit Gosset (formerly Nobby Organics)
These are just some of the absolutely adorable patterns/tutorials for doll clothing by Petit Gosset in NY.
They also carry Ozark handspun and hand dyed yarns in gorgeous colors.
Lots of material for special gifts!


Dalai Mama Patterns
I just love these sewing patterns for doll clothing by Dalai Mama Patterns, based in NY.
From dresses to pants to jumpers, there's everything you need to clothe a precious doll.


Heidi and Finn
For those looking to make that special child in their life some clothing for the holidays, look no further than Heidi and Finn, a shop from Toronto.  These are some of the hippest pieces of clothing I've ever seen for children!  Tops, bottoms, jackets and dresses - it's all here.  If you'd rather purchase the clothing ready made, please check out their feature in our Baby and Kids Guide.
