If you are planning on making some of your christmas gifts this year, here are some tutorials for some really nice ones.
Back Pack from Moda Bake Shop.
Potholder/Oven Mitt Combo from About.Com. (I have made a lot of these for gifts and for myself. They work really great.)
Cute Apron from A Feathered Nest.
And here is a good one for Men or Teens, Lap Top Holder from Stephanie At Home.
