Woodworking DIY Gifts
I absolutely LOVE this wooden table caddy. This is a great tutorial from remodelaholic.com.
This Rustic Serving Tray is so stunning I just had to include it. The tutorial can be found on simplydesigning.porch.com and seems to be fairly straight forward and simple to follow. There's great pictures, as well!
Kids DIY Gifts
I found this on andreasnotebook.com. Scroll down to the link to download the pattern. There is no tutorial, however, so you'll need to be an intermediate sewist and know the basics of reading a pattern.
Fishing Rod & Fish Set
This is a great tutorial from homemade-gifts-made-easy.com to make for a three or four year old. Very cute and functional for any child on your list.
Sewing DIY Gifts
Reusable Microwavable Popcorn Bag
This is a great gift idea for a teenager or college student to make themselves a snack after school from neededinthehome.com. Easy sewing directions and photos to give examples.
Double Sided Cloth Napkins
This is a tutorial of my own. It's an easy DIY step-by-step guide to double-sided, durable cloth napkins.
Reversible Table Runner
Having a reversible runner is such a great idea! I can't believe I hadn't thought of it. While I've made a runner or two in the past, I've never considered making it multi-season. You can find the full tutorial at schoolofdecorating.com
This is a great gift for someone who loves to read. This is from polkadotchair.com.
