Small DIY Quilted Gifts To Make For Birthday (Patchwork Projects From Your Scraps & Stash)


It’s a lot of fun to make unique birthday presents out of quilting for friends who have hobbies. Not only does it provide you with the opportunity to quilt, but it also allows you the flexibility to customize the quilted present you give to your friend according to the interests that they pursue.

For example, if you have a friend who is passionate about scrapbooking, you could make them a cover for their scrapbook that is quilted. Alternately, you could make a quilted tote to transport your scrapbooking supplies in.

It’s also full of possibilities to make quilted presents for people you know who have a passion for reading. Making quilted bookmarks is a quick and easy way to create small gifts that can be a lot of fun. Make sure to use a batting with a low pile so the bookmark doesn’t turn out to be too puffy. Patchwork totes are yet another excellent option for the recipients of your book. Include a small pouch with a quilted design that can be used to hold reading glasses or library cards.

Create a quilted cover for a journal to give to friends who enjoy writing. Convert a pattern for a quilt block to the size you need, create an appliqué that is unique to your needs, or make a cover for a journal using a crazy quilt. It would be a nice addition to the present if it came with a matching quilted pencil or pen carrying case.

Do you have a pal who is completely obsessed with the game of Bingo? Create a convenient carrying pouch out of quilting material to store a variety of daubers. You can use any fabric, but your friend’s favorite colors are a good place to start. You can also use fabric printed with various Bingo motifs.

Carrying pouches with a quilted exterior are also fantastic options for children. Create a special one for transporting crayons and markers around with you.

There are a lot of things you can make for people who like to cook as presents. You can make some very nice aprons, trivets, and kitchen wall hangings in addition to the obvious ideas like pot holders and oven mitts that can be quilted. Other ideas include kitchen wall hangings. Nice quilted gifts can also be found in casserole carriers.

Make a quilted water bottle holder and give it to some of your friends who are into working out. Construct a strap for it so that it can be fastened to a wrist, a belt loop, or a backpack for even more convenience. Another idea for a thoughtful present is a workout mat that has been quilted.

Quilted water bottle holders and mats could be useful for a wide variety of sports fans as well. But what about those friends who enjoy watching sports but don’t actually participate in them? These friends would enjoy receiving quilted stadium cushions, lap throws, or quillows (especially ones that had a team mascot appliquéd on them or were made in the colors of the team) as gifts. In point of fact, these are probably the friends who are the easiest to please because you could make any quilt project using the colors of their preferred sports team.

If the sports fans in your life are the kind to throw tailgate parties, you have even more options when it comes to buying them gifts. The use of cooking mitts, aprons, and potholders is expected of the cook. Why not make a special quilted team flag for your friends to take to the tailgate and proudly display while they cheer on their favorite team?

Friends who enjoy traveling, be it around the world or just a lot of day trips, provide you with more opportunities to quilt. This is true whether or not they travel the entire world. Those who are required to nap while traveling, whether by car or plane, can benefit greatly from the use of a patchwork neck pillow. In addition, a quilted hanging case makes an exceptionally nice present. On a more modest scale, quilted bags for carrying makeup or other essentials are also thoughtful and useful presents.

Do you need to buy a present for someone who never gets off the couch and doesn’t appear to have any hobbies? Even that can be concealed with quilting. A cozy option for those chilly days or nights is a small quilt for your lap. A remote control caddy that can be quilted and attached to the arm of a chair or sofa is an interesting idea. Rest your head on a patchwork pillow or a neck pillow you make yourself.

There is, in point of fact, something that you can quilt for every single person. When looking for an idea for a gift to give a friend, it is important to take the friend’s likes, dislikes, and hobbies into consideration. Your quilting abilities will be put to good use if you follow these steps, and you will be able to create one-of-a-kind presents for your one-of-a-kind friends!
