scarfs out of fleece. You can get two different ones & then tie them together in squares.

Ooh, we've done that. You can even fold up the bottom or use another square tied to the fringe to make a little pocket or place to keep mittens or warm your hands.

fleece ponchos (one year I did "native american" costumes- striped fleece and I made ponchos and a maching feather warpped in fleece for "headgear" for my little ones)

girly fleece ponchos

knotted fleece bags

knotted fleece blankets (watch for sales at Joannes or use 50% off coupons)

ornaments - make circular ones with small christmas pictures glued onto lids of cans or jars and hung from a ribbon



trying to think of other "no sew" items I have made

Did you see the link for picture boards in the sticky from last year's christmas thread http://www.organizedchristmas.com/french-memory-board It says "sew" but it's not really a sew item. YOu have to thread a needle and attach a button to the board but that's it

That website is very neat bookmarked it

awesome list!
I can handsew, a few buttons, a few small seams, etc. I just don't have a sewing machine, nor have I ever used one...

ooooh look at this site my sister sent me! I'm going to attempt some of these! I have TONS of essential oils that my sis and I went in on for a huge bargain (buy two, get three free, things like that). I can make my own peppermint scented body scrub! this is exciting

i love the aromatherapy gift idea page

I'm thinking bath fizzies may be a fun gift this year. Add those with a crochet special wash cloth - like in the shape of a flower or something.
