14 quick Christmas sewing ideas to get in the holiday spirit

It’s November. Let that sink in! The hubbub of Halloween is over and now we turn our thoughts to the wintertime holidays. Where’s that panic button when I need one?

Panic and planning aside, I can’t think of a better way to get yourself into the festive season mindset than to make a fun little stress-free project. Something that you can finish in a weekend or a few evenings that will make you feel like you got a bit of a jump start on the whole affair. Whether you choose to keep the project as a present to yourself or plan to give it away, you’ll feel just a tiny bit ahead of the game and hopefully a bit more relaxed. Think of it as a type of meditation!

Of course, we have suggestions for such projects in our holiday books. And, even better, the books are on sale for 40% off right now!

Take a peek inside each book on sale below.
