Anyway... I'm not sure how you're all fixed for time, or if you still might need a few gifts for those on your lists, but I thought I'd share a few tutorials for quick and easy projects.
Quick and easy lanyards--great for teacher gifts. Using just a wee bit of fabric and a hook, you can make one super quick.
Zipper pouches are always useful, and this inset zipper pouch is a handy size for lots of things.
Frame purses are adorable for not much fabric real estate. I've got a glue-in version here.
Check out my tutorials page for more ideas--I've got easy totes, assorted zippered pouches and bags, and a few more involved projects on the sew-alongs page.
