It's that time of year again!  The beginning of December and you have realized you have a ton of fabric and a long list of people to get gifts for but, money is a little tight.   We are here to save the day! 

Here at Meyraki we have collected over 50 FREE patterns for you to use for your gift giving sewing.  These are from all of your favorite designers, so we know they are good and well tested.  

Dive in and lets get sewing up your holiday wishes!

To start you off big, we have quite a few right here at Meyraki Patterns.

This is a very generous stocking at about 9" wide and 20" long.  Make one for every member of the family and it will be a cherished heirloom for years to come.  

The Fried Pickles Tee too is a basic tee. It has the options of long or short sleeves and comes with a crew neckline. If you are looking for a tee with more options check out the Dill Pickles Tee. The Fried Pickles Tee is bound to be a wardrobe staple by many!

The Hope Port access Tee is a design that is very special to me.  I started designing her while going through chemo.  She has been through some changes along the way, but it has only made her more beautiful. Hope is a, semi fitted at the chest and loose fitting at the hem, knit top with a gorgeous V hem.

This is the perfect project to upcycle those old towles or washcloths.  PLUS it's seriously a fast project.  I knocked out 3 of these in 30 minutes just today.  A kids bath mitt is a great gift!

The Newsboy Cap pattern has 3 basic sizes, and is sized for teens to adults.  The smaller size with fit up to a 21″ head, the medium size up to a 23″ head.  and the larger size up to a 25″ head.  I will show you how to adjust to fit sizes in between.  

Pencil Roll Up (or paint brushes, markers, crayons, makeup brushes, pens....) this is a great gift for so many people on your lists.

 Perfect for BOYS and GIRLS.  The Safari Tank includes options for ruffle hem (girly option) as well as the unisex options of regular and banded hem.  Hands down the most useful Summer pattern!  Make one for every kid you know.  The Safari is sure to keep them cool all Summer long!

If you like BIG BOWS and you cannot lie, then Sugar and Spice is the pattern for you!  This pattern comes with detailed instructions and a cut chart to create the cutest headband out there.  Grab your scraps and make some headbands.

The Totally Twisted Headband. My daughter loves making these for her friends. They're great scrap busters and so fast to whip up.

Handmade ornaments are such a fun gift to make and to receive.  They make great additions to the package of  gifts as well, as a little extra with the gift.
