Because it is July...

Because it is July...

And the holidays are coming.  Maybe even a little faster than we'd like to think about.

So today is about sharing some of the perfect-for-a-gift projects that we've shared in the past few years.  

Like this Christmas Village pillow - the pattern for this 16" x 26" pillow can be found on this July 14, 2017 blog post - Christmas Village...

Do you like quick little zipper bags?  I love them and they're a great way to use up left over Layer Cake Squares.

July. Christmas. Ready.  There are instructions on how I made these bags.  (I should review so I can make more!)

For an easy drawstring bag made with Moda's toweling, this is an option.

This post was Throwing in the Towel... but if it's this Red & White plaid, throw it in my direction!

With so many of Moda's Christmas collections now in shops, there is also time to make a quilt.  This Hometown Stars from last year is still one of my favorites.

It was designed and made by Thelma Childers of Cupcakes 'n Daisies.  The pattern - and some of the story - for this quilt can be found at Hometown Stars.

Red and White!  Start gathering red and white stripe fabrics - and any red and white fabric - to make some fabric Candy Canes.

The best part about these candy canes is that they have absolutely no calories!  Well, they would but really, you're not going to eat them so that means they are calorie-free.  Candy Canes - July 2016.

And while you're searching for red and white fabrics, make sure to get some Bella Solid in 98 or 200 so you can make a few of these pillows.

Love. These. Pillows.  They've traveled to shows and graced the lobby of Moda Fabrics.  They're made using patterns - either a mini or a block from a larger quilt.  All the information about these pillows can be found at Red & White in July.

There are some new holiday projects to share later this week, I just need to finish taking pictures of each step.  A box.  And a star.

So do you start planning your holiday sewing this early?  Are you sewing yet?  What is on your Holiday 2018 Sewing To-Do List?

Happy Tuesday!
