I will only share a couple of quotes, since I hope you will click over and read the article for yourself.
The author of the post notes, "Planning and sewing Christmas projects during the summer months makes good sense: not only will you have plenty of time to plan and complete Christmas sewing, but you also won't have trouble finding your favorite pieces from [the] brand new Christmas collections."
"Not only is now the perfect time to shop for the latest in Christmas fabrics, but most importantly it's time to decide what to make with them! Don't get caught waiting until fall to begin: by then you might not have enough time to complete all of your wonderful ideas."
The post also had some excellent suggestions for projects to work on in the summer months. Here are some of the ideas:
- Christmas pillows
- Christmas table runners and table toppers
- Christmas wall hangings
- Christmas stockings
- Christmas ornaments
- Christmas tags
- Christmas kitchen items: pot holders, dish towels, and place mats
- Christmas gift bags of all sizes
- I'm also going to share with you a link to a post I wrote a few years back sharing some project ideas for Using up some of one's Christmas fabric stash. I hope it's helpful as well!
