We are pretty excited in the Prima office today because we just realized that there are only a few weeks left until Christmas!
To celebrate this, and the fact that it’s also the start of London Craft Week, LoveCrafts has brought you 12 free templates for some great gift ideas to give to your family and friends this Christmas.
London Craft Week celebrates the ‘magical combination of imagination, individuality, passion and skill found in the best things made’, so what better time to channel that creativity into gift-making Christmas for a loved one?
Edward Griffith, CEO and Founder of LoveCrafts, says, âWe truly believe that craftsmanship makes the world a better place. Science has proven the positive impact of craftsmanship on our physical and mental well-being, and there are hidden benefits too!
âI hope our research inspires some members of the audience to try something creative they might not have considered before. It could spark a passion for life! “
Here are the top three ideas to get you started, and we’ll update you every week with a new idea – so be sure to come back next Monday!
Week 1: Comfortable socks
A pair of cashmere slippers is a nice gift for someone you love. Knitted flat, as an easy-to-lay garter, these slippers can be assembled in the blink of an eye. Garter stitch keeps all that gorgeous warmth inside, with a deep ribbed cuff to fold up at the ankle. When they’re so quick to knit, you’ll want to make several pairs to give away this winter.
Second week: embroidery designs
There is nothing sweeter than a hand-sewn gift and this bumper pattern pack, designed by Thread Honey for Paintbox Crafts, will have you personalizing cute gifts in no time. Sew them onto a t-shirt or a set of linen napkins. Or if you want to go the extra mile, why not sew a simple tote bag or pencil case for the ultimate handmade gift.
Third week: Afghan crochet blanket
The Snugly Fall Afghan Paintbox is a perfect cozy blanket in fall colors. It’s crocheted in squares that are stitched together using single crochet stitches and makes the perfect blanket for snuggling up on the sofa or taking with you on adventures around a campfire under the stars. Whoever the lucky recipient is, one thing is for sure, it’s coverage that will be invaluable year after year.
