12 Days of DIY's!

 
I am LOVING today's fun DIY Projects! They are both fabulous for giving this Christmas or for making your own custom holiday décor if you use some of our adorable Christmas fabrics!
 
First up, is the fun & festive quilted Christmas Tree Trivet! These would be so awesome to pull out at this year's holiday party or to use for Christmas Dinner! Get the tutorial created by Call Ajaire!
 
 
These Christmas Tree Stockings are a fabulous project to update your home's handmade holiday look! Keep it classic and simple or embellish with a monogram for your hubby & kiddos! Handmade stocking would make a great gift to any of your friends who haven't begun sewing yet! Making them something special that they can use again and again is always a great gift idea!
 
 
This fun tutorial was created by Britches N Bloomers and can be found HERE!
 
 
There are only 7 more shopping/making days until the BIG day so get some inspiration from these projects and put the finishing touches on this year's handmade holiday!
Happy Sewing!

12 Days of Christmas DIY'S: Day 3

 
These Christmas Tree Napkins look awfully familiar! That's because this is one of our favorite Christmas time projects ever since we shared our version on the blog 3 years ago!

 
Adding a little Christmas cheer to your table settings is a MUST for the holidays! Create some of these fabulous napkins, a coordinating Christmas table cloth and maybe a quilted runner! Or you could make an easy centerpiece by filling a fabulous bowl with simple red & green glass ornaments!
There's still time to come into the shop for Christmas fabrics to create a fun holiday table for you and yours or for a Christmas party!
 
Happy Sewing!

Kiddo Leggings DIY for fun Riley Blake Knits!

 
I just found this super cute and Super Simple Leggings DIY for little one's on the MakeIt-LoveIt website! They do require a pair of ready-made leggings that fit your child already but you can find those for a few dollars at Target if you don't already have one and then you've got a pattern to make as many as you want! The rest of the tutorial is easy as cake and you only use 2 fabric pieces (click here for the full tutorial)!
 
 I think these would be SEW ADORABLE in some of our fun new Knit Fabrics from the cool kids over at Riley Blake Designs!
 
 
 
Happy Flappers Owl Cream - Knit
 
I AM IN LOVE with these Happy Flappers! Pretty much the cutest owl print I've seen in awhile and it's in a knit?? How did we get so lucky!! This would make some awesomely funky leggings to pair with colorful sweaters and cool boots this Fall & Winter!
 
 
 
Oh Boy Elephants Orange - Knit     Oh Boy Elephants Gray - Knit
 
These Elephant prints are pretty much perfect! Boys and girls will love these little creatures marching up their legs! Make a simple shirt with the same knit for a matching pair of comfy pj's!
 
 
 
Knit Small Dots Gray
 
This sweet ray dot knit would look super cute under any dress or skirt to keep your little one's legs warm! Polka dots are the perfect way to get a little interest without things getting too out there! I think I might even want some leggings out of this one! That tutorial is totally adaptable for adults, right? I've got a pair of worn leggings lying around somewhere...
 
 
 
Knit Solid Black     Knit Solid Navy
 
AND if you're just wanting to create the ever-so-versatile pair of plain black (or navy) leggings, we've got the knits for that! Maybe after playing with this comfy fabric you'll be inspired to create 10 Minute Maxi Skirt for yourself?!
 
 
No matter what you want to make out of these comfy Knits, we just know you'll get addicted to sewing with them! There are a lot of tips and tricks out there for sewing with knit if you've never tried your hand at it before! Just do a quick search and add another type of fabric to your sewing repertoire!
 
Happy Sewing!!
