Not all bedrooms are large enough to have a nightstand on both sides of the bed... but that doesn't mean that you don't need a place to put things. Especially with all of the electronics and more and more people just keeping a cell phone rather than land line telephones. Keeping the phone in bed with you may seem convenient but it's a great ay for the phone to end up overheated and ruined. This weeks free pattern is for a bedside organizer that will keep your cell phone and tablet close at hand but secure at the same time. If you have someone on your gift list that will be spending some time healing in bed, now is a great time to make them one of these bedside organizers as a holiday or get-well gift.

I bet you have your kitchen and dinning room all decorated for Thanksgiving... but now Thanksgiving is over and the Christmas decorations will be coming out of storage... where does your kitchen stand for the next holiday decorations? You can easily transform any of the Christmas print fabrics in to things for your kitchen... imagine matching or coordinating hanging hand towels, small appliance covers and table clothes. You can do it for a lot less than it would cost to buy them... if you could even find them at a store.

The gift list can easily grow out of control by the time Christmas Eve gets here. You have so many people who make a difference through out the year to remember. You wouldn't want to forget the teachers, baby sitters, newspaper carrier, mail person and club leaders that give to your children all year long! I can tell you first hand that those people end up with all kinds of dollar store stuff that although it is appreciated, it will probably never be used... but there are all kinds of things you can make that are bound to be used! The best part is that if you use mass production techniques, you can make a pile of gifts in one weekend.

Is Barbie or another 11" fashion doll on your holiday shopping list? Those dolls come in clothes but the fun is in dressing them up in different outfits and playing pretend for all kinds of activities. The clothes in the stores can easily cost a small fortune. Why spend all that money when you can use free patterns and make an elaborate wardrobe using your scraps of fabric and trims?The best part... your favorite doll will have an original wardrobe that none of the other little girls have.
