Handmade Christmas Challenge - May

2014 Christmas Handmade Pledge


We are getting closer to Christmas (gosh we just got nice weather, too) and maybe more of you are thinking of starting your seasonal sewing now.  So many new Christmas lines are starting to appear in the shops - wait til' those new Market fabrics come out - oh my!


This month I got a start on some grandkid items.  I made these last year and they were a great hit.  Crayon roll-ups using this TUTORIAL.  I use a lightweight iron-on interfacing just to give them a little strength.  Pair them up with a coloring book and you have a quick gift. 

You can join in any month and please go visit SewCalGal to get some Christmas project inspiration.

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  4. These are so cute. Christmas will be here before we know it. Working on handmade projects throughout the year is the only way we'll be ready.
