Personalized makeup pouch

This is a great gift for women of all ages. You can buy a ready-made fabric pouch or sew your own bag. Finish it with a gold zipper. Next, use a sewing machine to embroider your friend or relative’s name on the pouch. If you’re planning to give several makeup pouches as gifts and don’t have much time to do hand embroidery, consider just embroidering the first letter of each person’s name. To make the gift even more special, include a small mirror and a tube of lip balm, and you’ve got a present that’s sure to be a hit this Christmas.

Embroidered notebook

This is a versatile gift as anyone can use a new notebook for making lists, taking notes, or for sketching and bullet journaling. To make this DIY project, you’ll need a plain card notebook, embroidery needle and thread in different colors, and some drawing paper. First, practice drawing your design on the drawing paper until you’re ready to draw on the notebook cover. Use basic shapes and simple designs so you can embroider along the outline easily. Select your embroidery thread colors and hand embroider your design. Be careful not to pull to tight to avoid ripping the notebook cover. Once you’re done, include a pen or pencil with the notebook before wrapping it all up.

Embroidered tote bag

This is a great gift that kids will love as they can be involved in making this project. Ask a child to doodle anything on a piece of paper and have him or her color it. Take the paper, scan it, then print on iron-on transfer paper. Position the paper in such a way that the drawing is right in the center of a plain canvas bag, then iron it well. Once the original artwork has been transferred, embroider along the outlines of the design, then fill the bag with a pack of the child’s favorite cookies or snack.

Adding a few extra stitches to fabric or paper can elevate a gift and make it more personal and thoughtful. Consider any of these last-minute embroidery gifts that your loved ones will cherish and enjoy.
