National Sewing Month ideas: put on your Santa hat early this year! 🎅

National Sewing Month ideasHave you been celebrating National Sewing Month? There’s no better excuse to carve out some extra time to sew in September. In fact, you can tell everyone it’s your duty and responsibility to sew. It’s a national month, people!

Today we’re thinking ahead to the hustle and bustle of Christmas—and how every year, we wish we had more time for holiday sewing. This year we’ve got the solution: start NOW!

Below we’re spotlighting some of our favorite projects from books with a holiday vibe. From quick-to-make decorations to quilts that’ll become a holiday tradition to hang (or cuddle with) in your home, give yourself the gift of leisurely sewing before the flurry of the festive season arrives. Just think—cozying up in a quilt, in front of a blazing fire on Christmas Eve . . . instead of sitting at your sewing machine (we’ve all been there!).
