Homemade Christmas Sewing Projects have been a part of my life since I was a little girl. Every Christmas my mom would make several of my brother and my Christmas gifts. That was a tradition that I passed down to my children and now my daughter is doing with my granddaughter. I hope you all enjoy this round-up of 10+ home-made Christmas Sewing Projects.
Y'all know by now I live in Texas. Come Christmastime though, a part of my heart gets pulled to Pennsylvania. My daughter and one and only oh so special granddaughter live there. I adore spending holiday time with her and when I find my heart missing her, my mind wanders off to our Christmas time together. One of the ways I get to keep my heart in Christmas year-round is with my absolute love of sewing. I forever dream of the days we'll live closer and Home Made Christmas Sewing Projects will be something we do in person together.
Home-Made Christmas Sewing Projects
Sewing has brought me so much joy over the years. Sewing also allows me to gift my friends and family with treasures you just cannot buy in a store. You see, a handmade/homemade gift comes with a story, a history, a person. Yes, a homemade gift comes with memories.
When I see some of the items I've created over the years, each one holds so much more than a functional purpose. The pillow may remind me of someone special that was in my life when I was stitching it up. A blanket or curtains could be something I was inspired to do after acing a particularly hard exam. (oh nursing school has so many stories!)
Why I Love Sewing
Let's learn how to sew was born of a passion to share skills with others but it also allowed me to share part of myself; that is where the real joy comes from for me. Do you have someone in your life that would enjoy learning how to sew? How about sharing one of our sewing courses with them? Great gift idea, right?!
