I couldn’t let July pass by without sharing 15 Christmas in July sewing ideas. ‘Tis the season for crafters to start thinking about these things!
- I love this Christmas Tree Table Runner (re-sized) by Connie at Free Motion by The River. It’s on my list!
- I’ve always wanted to make a Quilted Christmas ornament such as this one by Jennifer Watkins for Create Kids Couture. It looks so cute in kid-friendly fabrics!
- If you entertain during the holidays, these Pinwheel Star Placemats will come in handy. I made this tutorial in 2013 and I still use these placemats today!
- If you enjoy a little hand embroidery, check out this Embroidered Christmas Pillow by Lindsey at Fort Worth Fabric Studio. So cute!
- If you have the time, this Fir Good Measure Christmas Quilt by Fort Worth Fabric Studio would be a great place to start.
- Setting out cookies for Santa is a fun tradition on Christmas Eve. Make it even more special with this Cookies for Santa Placemat at Skip to My Lou.
- Cookies are always on the table during the holidays, so keep things tidy with this Cookie Plate Crumb Catcher by The Crafty Quilter (me!). It’s a quick and easy project that would make a great hostess gift (along with some homemade cookies).
- This Christmas Gnome is the cutest ever! Caroline at Sew Can She has the free tutorial so you can make your own.
- If you can’t get enough gnomes, check out my free Gnome Mug Rug tutorial. He’ll keep your cup warm on those cold nights!
- This Fabric Christmas Tree Decoration at Hook Stitch Sew will brighten up your decor and use up some of your fabric stash at the same time!
- Nothing is more exciting than counting down the days with and advent calendar. Make this beautiful Linen and Liberty Advent Calendar with the free tutorial by Mary at Molly Flanders.
- Wall hangings are wonderful to decorate with, so you’ll love this Holiday Amish Mini Quilt at The Crafty Quilter (me again). I made this using a mini charm pack and it was quick and easy!
- If your “stockings are hung by the chimney with care”, make them extra special with this Christmas Stocking Tutorial at Sew Scrumptious Fabrics.
- Add a touch of handmade to your tree with this Northern Lights – Log Cabin Tree Skirt, by Janet Houts for Andover Fabrics (CLICK for PDF download).
- I love the fun and classic look of this free Pinwheels & Patchwork Quilt Pattern by Andy at A Bright Corner. It’s versatile enough for any holiday!
I know it’s a long ways off, but it really helps to start making a list now of the things you want to make (or do) for Christmas. I hope this has inspired you in that direction!
