We love all things crafty here at MAKEetc. and this Christmas we've been on the look out for some creative gift ideas to buy our similarly minded craft-loving friends! So here you will find our ten favourite presents for crafters - from yarns, fabrics, and craft kits to fun craft experience gifts and quirky accessories! We've catered for a range of budgets so there are cute little stocking filler ideas as well as some bigger put-a-big-grin-on-their-face gifts!

The Ministry of Craft offer a huge range of workshops in Manchester from beginner knitting, sewing and crochet lessons to linocut and screen printing, garment sewing workshops, jewellery making and much more!

Jacobean Floral Fantasy Jersey Crepe from Fabworks
This gorgeous jersey crepe fabric is perfect for flouncy peplum tops and dresses, skater style skirts and playsuits, and would make a lovely drape curtain in your home. We just love the fairytale-esque pattern and, at only £6 a metre, we think it would make a super Christmas gift for any floral loving sewer!

We love Wendy Ward's cute scissors badge and pendant and at just £5, it's the perfect secret santa present for your crafty pal. Choose from three stylish colours and you might as well order one for yourself while you're at it!
Rag Rug Starter Kit from Ragged Life
Rag rugging is a great way to use up scraps of fabric so this brilliant beginner's kit is perfect for fabric hoarders or anyone looking to start a new craft. The kit includes the tools you will need to get started, as well as an instructional DVD and booklet!
DIY Tassle Kit from Paperpoms
With a choice of colours and priced at only £10.50, this craft kit is perfect for your party loving pal. All they need to do is twist the tissue paper tassles into a beautiful garland and then hang up for a new year's eve party decoration or any other event!
Plump Super Chunky Yarn from Mrs Moon
Mrs Moon's yarns are made from the highest quality, sustainable, superfine merino and baby alpaca fibres, making them super soft and luxurious. The colours are beautiful and make for very trendy knitted or crocheted clothes and homeware - any yarn lover would be thrilled if they opened one of these £15.99 yarn balls on Christmas day!
Vintage World Map Fabric from Annie Sloan
You will not find a nicer map fabric than this beautiful design in the Annie Sloan Fabric Collection. A lovely gift for anybody that loves to sew their own cushions and curtains, or perhaps you know a travel lover that would love a homemade cushion from you! Either way, priced at £38 per metre, this is a special fabric for a special friend.
Red Leaf Tree Cross Stitch Bag Kit from Bobo Stitch
If you have a friend that still forgets to take their own bags to the supermarket then give them this lovely cross stitch bag kit for Christmas. Not only will they never forget their bag for life again, but they will look lovely carrying it around the supermarket too! The kit is £24 including the pattern, jute bag, threads needle and a cross stitch guide.
MAKE Scrabble Necklace from Claireabellemakes
We love all of Claireabellemakes scrabble inspired items but this MAKE necklace has to be our favourite! Such a great way to show off your love of craft and an excellent gift to wrap up for a maker you know.
You didn't think we'd do a list of gift ideas for crafters without including a book or two did you? Now we could have chosen 10 craft books to fill this list, of course, but there were so many other lovely things to choose from that we thought that would be a bit daft. So instead, why don't you take a look around our site to find the perfect book for your craft loving friend.
Phew, what a list!! If you are looking for a gift for a crafty friend then we hope something on here is going to be just perfect. Happy shopping and, as ever, happy making!
