Gift Guide!

The holidays are just around the corner, so we’ve compiled a couple lists of project ideas to get you started on the right path!

Whether you're looking to sew a project for yourself, friends, or family, you're sure to find a pattern that works for you. Let us know in the comments what your holiday sewing plans are, this year.

Sewing Projects for Beginning Sewists

These are simple projects that you can sew for friends and family without too much fuss! If you’re new to our patterns, we recommend you sew through our ByAnnie Basics to begin your journey. If you’re looking for a small, simple sewing project, here are some patterns to try out:

When available, be sure to watch the Add-on Video that accompanies the pattern before you begin and as you sew.

Sewing Projects Focused on Organization

We love a functional sewing project, especially a project that will encourage us to get a little organized when we're finished. They make great gifts for students, sewists, crafters, new parents, or you name it!

Sewing Projects for the Home

Spruce up the kitchen, your living space, or a bedroom with these nifty, organization-friendly patterns!

Sewing Projects for a Crafty Friend

Maybe the 'crafty friend' is yourself ( we won't tell). We have so many sewing-oriented patterns, or organizers perfect for the hobby-space, but these are some of our favorites:

Sewing Projects for the Adventurer

'Travel' isn't something we're as busy with this past year, but 'adventure' can be an every-day occurrence. Make a trip to the grocery store a little more special with something custom-made. Give the college student in your life a reminder of home. Adventure is what you make it!

Stocking Stuffers for Sewists

Surprise a crafty friend with a new sewing notion! We know we can never have enough Wonder Clips!

Ready to start sewing? Get an overview of a few of our products!

Soft and Stable

If you haven’t used our Soft and Stable product before, now is the perfect time to try it out in conjunction with some of our easy-to-sew, gift-friendly patterns (Check out the ByAnnie Basics).

Non-fusible to prevent gumming up your machine, we recommend quilting this foam stabilizer with its grippy surface to your fabric.

Washable, dryer friendly, easy to work with.


Handbag Zippers

Our handbag zippers are available in a rainbow of colors and lengths.

If you’re nervous to take on a project using zippers, it’s worth checking out our Zippers Are Easy tutorials.

With these tutorials, Annie will help you become a zipper master in no-time-flat!

YKK, nylon coil (teeth), #4.5, 48 brilliant colors.


Lightweight Mesh Fabric

We like using lightweight mesh fabric (available in 14 fun colors) to make breathable, slightly stretchy pockets in our bags and projects.

The colors of our mesh correspond perfectly with our zipper and fold-over elastic colors of the same names!

Learn how to work with mesh and fold-over elastic using this PDF!


Fold-Over Elastic

Line your mesh and fabric pockets (or face masks) with our colorful fold-over elastic. Pre-creased for easy folding and sewing, you’ll be amazed at how simple it is to use.

Mesh color names correspond exactly with the fold-over elastic color names for easier mixing and matching.


Premium Clear Vinyl

Flexible, yet sturdy, this premium weight 16-gauge 54"-wide vinyl is double polished for maximum clarity.

The vinyl is easy to sew through and can be used for linings or pockets in organizers, purses and bags, wallets, and more.


Polypro Strapping

Our polypro strapping is a durable and long-lasting strapping that is great for handles for bags, purses and more.

Available in black and white, we recommend covering the strapping with a coordinating fabric in order to make a truly custom look for your project.


Stiletto & Pressing Tool

This precision placement tool is Annie’s favorite. Its lightly sanded, grippy point helps pull bindings over and keep tiny pieces in place as they go under the foot of the machine. This stiletto will go places no fingers should venture near the needle!

The perfect stocking stuffer for a crafty friend… or yourself!


Purse Parts Hardware

Our hardware is beautifully finished, not simply die cast or bent wire. This results in smooth lines, no rough edges and a truly high quality look and feel. You'll love how it embellishes your bag.

Available in Sets of Two!


Fusible Interfacing

Stabilize pockets and linings with our easy-to-use fusible interfacing! Adds body and permanent stability when used as a backing for needlework and punch embroidery.

Washable, dry cleanable. Machine wash warm, machine dry medium, iron at wool/steam setting.


Mask Filter Material

Lightweight and breathable, this top-quality filtering material is perfect for face masks.

We recommend using this filter material in conjunction with tightly-woven quilting cottons for a stylish design and good quality filtration.

Non-woven, spun-bond polypropylene. 1.25 ounce per square yard (on par with most surgical masks).



With a focus on practical and useful projects, Annie's patterns appeal to a sewists of all ages and levels. You'll love the check boxes before each step which allow you to keep track of where you are in the process.

Start with the ByAnnie Basics to learn our best techniques!


Add-on Videos

A select number of our patterns come with a physical coupon to access an Add-on Video!

Add-on Videos are supplemental tutorials that walk you through the more difficult or technique-heavy parts of a pattern.

Note: During our Black Friday sale, purchase your Add-on Video (with its unique coupon) separately from your other products. Our system doesn't allow for two coupons to be used at the same time.



Thank you for joining us on our Holiday Guide blog post, we hope you found something here to get excited about! Let us know in the comments what your sewing plans are this holiday season. Remember to gather safely and responsibly!
