Over 100 Christmas Gift Ideas Sewing Tutorials

With the kids going back to school over the next week or so our thoughts move to sewing for Christmas, whether it's gifts or projects to sell. With this is mind I thought I would seek out some great sewing ideas.

The first gift tutorial is Toadstool Cottage & Mushroom House*,  by The Little House by the Sea.  I think they would make great pin cushions.
