Christmas in July with Moda: 3 Projects for the Holidays!!!

Can you believe July is already almost over?? I swear, this year keeps moving faster and faster all the time! But I can't say I'm not already looking forward to the most wonderful time of the year with all of the amazing Christmas  Collections that have come out this year, especially from our friends at Moda!! They actually teamed up with Sew4Home to bring you 3 adorable Christmas projects using some of their favorite Moda holiday lines!!

First up is this SUPER CUTE Patchwork Pom Pom Table Runner in Joy by Kate Spain!! There is just something about having a little bit of holiday festivitiy everywhere you turn that makes Christmas so magical and this table runner is sure to bring some extra holiday cheer to your table! Simply designed and made extra special with that Pom Pom Fringe, this patchwork runner allows the prints in Joy to really stand out! You can get the full instructions and fabric requirements here! This project calls for a Joy Layer Cake which we still have in stock!!

Get Christmas "in the bag" early this year, but whipping up a few dozen of these quick, easy and very cute Drawstring Gift Bags in Dear Mr. Claus by Cosmo Cricket!! The prints in this collection are reminiscient of vintage paper and postcards so its a perfect fit for a wrapping alternative! Plus they can be re-used for years to come, so you can help eliminate a little waste this Christmas!! And don't just stop there! Use whatever prints you like to make all sorts of useful bags for any occassion!!
Full instructions and images along with material list here! And don't forget to grab a Dear Mr Claus Layer Cake for the project! 

And how about creating some brand new English Cottage Stockings to hang by your chimney with care in Blitzen by BasicGrey!! These simple socks will look dashing in several different coordinating prints! Use a coohesive embellishment like the bow on the 3 above to really tie them all together!! Get the full project details here!!

Blitzen Quilt Kit       Dear Mr. Clause Quilt Kit

And if you really love these beautiful Christmas Collections, we have two beautiful Quilt Kits in that would fit right in with these projects! The Blitzen Quilt Kit is very modern and totally striking! I love that the color scheme plus design don't necessarily scream Chrismtas! But that Dear Mr. Claus Kit is too cute for words with all of its vintage looking gift boxes! Either one would be a wonderful addition to your holiday decor! You can shop all of our Christmas Fabrics here to get even more inspiration for holiday themed projects!

As always, happy sewing! And start planning those handmade gifts and holiday decor now!!
