Christmas on a Dime - Take II

This afternoon, I'll be presenting at the Mt. Harrison Guild Meeting in Rupert.  I'm re-posting a great snippit from last fall with an abundance of inexpensive, handmade Christmas Gift Ideas. The Holiday season doesn't have to be a burden on our budget. Dig into that stash and create fun gifts from the fat quarters that you have so lovingly collected over the years. Really, it's a "twofer" - y'know, a two for one... you'll be cleaning your sewing room as you prepare for Christmas. Start now and take the stress out of the season!

Here are some of my favorite links to quick, easy homemade projects. These come from all over the "blog world" and I would ask that you respect their copywright requests. They are very kind to share their talents, patterns, and ideas!

The Ultimate Handmade Holidays Master List by Sew Mama Sew - more ideas than you could sew in a lifetime!

The Domestic Diva's "A Month of Holiday Gifts to Sew" - a project for every day, complete with tutorials!

From headbands to checkbook covers, you will find over 50 more projects and tutorials at Domestic Cents

Skip to my Lou has a fun list of gifts you can sew - Everything from Lunchboxes to Crayon Rolls! She has another huge list of projects HERE. Amazing!

Moda Bake Shop is an amazing collaboration of some of incredible pattern and fabric designers making free project patterns for YOU! Have a Jelly Roll and you aren't sure what to do with it? Search by Jelly Roll and choose from 8 pages, dozens and dozens of adorable projects. LOVE IT!!!

Blogs are a treasure chest of fun ideas to help you keep your holiday budget in tact. Let's get started!!!! See you at Guild!
