Handmade Christmas

It's July and I've already started thinking about Christmas gifts. I love giving handmade gifts, but have the tendency to start too late to get everything done! This year I'm starting my idea search early and would love input and ideas from anyone who has them! Not only can Christmas be very expensive, but when you have to buy everything you need in just a few weeks in December – well, it can cripple your bank account as well. Those of you who know me know how much I LOVE to sew. I sew something almost everyday. Hopefully, I'll be able to come up with lots of little hand sewn gift ideas. Maybe a cute potholder set with a jar of canned homemade strawberry jam? The link to my list will be up top! Keeping checking it if you're interested in a handmade Christmas this year!

I should start thinking of this too.

In February, I made myself a set of placemats that I absolutely loved. They were so easy too! That's a good sewing project. (

What about shopping bags? Those ideas are plentiful on Pinterest. Are you a Pinner?
