Sewing for the Holidays
Can you believe we are less than 3 weeks away from Christmas?!!
I don’t know about you, but I still have a ton of Christmas sewing projects on my to-do list!
Unfortunately, I’m not the type of person to start my holiday projects in July, so that means I’m usually sewing my handmade gifts right up ’til the day before I need them. Luckily, we have our outdoor decorations up already – so from the outside at least, it looks like I’m prepared, lol.
I’ll get the tree up in the next few days then, hopefully, I’ll start working on a few new things to sew for Christmas including decor items and gifts. My current plan consists of some embroidered hand towels, a couple of wine bottle gift bags, and some new holiday placemats. (Similar to this rag quilt placemat, but holiday-themed.) If time permits I’d love to make a few gift toppers and maybe some gift cardholders.
