Your never-ending quest to find the perfect gift for everyone on your list might just end with the projects and motifs you’ll discover in Aimee Ray’s Doodle Stitching series. Doodle Stitching: The Motif Collection is chock-full of designs that you can sew on almost anything, from sweaters to stockings. Begin by downloading these motifs, then grab a pair of mittens and a hat, add the adorable snowflakes and—voilà!— you’ve got a great gift for your cousin. Stitch the snowman motif onto a scarf and —presto!—a little something for your favorite teacher. Add the mittens motif to some tea towels and you’ve solved the dilemma of what to give your next-door neighbor.
You’ll find even more unique holiday gift ideas when you dive into Doodle Stitching! The “All Season Ornaments” on page 39 can be displayed all through the year, and the “Songbird MP3 Player” on page 45 is perfect for your tech-savvy niece. And after all the presents have been unwrapped, don the “No Peeking Eye Mask,” and settle in for a long winter’s night.
