The Holiday Season may look a little different this year, but the joy and love that accompanies it remains as strong as ever. If anything, the cheer felt during the holiday season feels more important this year, and more needed than ever. Perhaps we are all just craving a nice respite from what has been a rather stressful year!
We know there are many friends and family you may not be able to see this holiday season. We don't know about you, but that inability to gather with EVERYONE has made us want to get the perfect gift for, well, everyone!
Doesn’t it feel amazing when you give that perfect gift? Giving someone the perfect tangible expression of love; there is no better feeling. A little stumped on what to get for some of your loved ones? We’re here to help! Sallie Tomato has something for even the most difficult of people to shop for. So turn on some Christmas music, grab a cup of hot chocolate, and get the fire going...it’s time to shop these perfect gifts for everyone on your list!
The Lucky $2 Wallet
Perfect for him or her, the Lucky $2 Wallet is a simple, beginner level wallet that has been designed for sewing with cork fabric, faux leather, or kraft-tex. It only requires a small amount of material and a small amount of time- from start to finish, this pattern takes approximately 60 minutes to complete. You could potentially make one of these for everyone on your list and call it a day!
We also sell this as a kit, which includes everything needed to make this wallet. That’s right, EVERYTHING! This year is THE year to give an “experience” and many people are eager to take up new projects and hobbies. We even have a video tutorial to help along the way! So give this unconstructed kit away or gift a finished wallet- you can't go wrong either way! And did we mention, there is a FREE video tutorial for this project? The perfect gift does exist!
A collaborative effort with Embroidery Garden on their first sewing project release, this Composition Notebook Cover was designed by Reen Wilcoxson, an ever talented author, designer, educator, and the owner of Embroidery Garden.

We sell this as a pattern (both digital and paper) so you can make one with materials you may already have or as a kit that includes everything needed to make this notebook cover. You can order for yourself to make and give away or give the kit as the gift!
