I wanted to do a little word play with you all this morning, but it just wasn’t coming together in my head correctly. Do any of you have that issue ever? :) So I just decided to focus on the ‘cheer’ of the Christmas season and see what fun things we can find on the internet for you (that are free) to enjoy and hopefully inspire you.
How about some miniature Christmas hats? These can be ornaments for your tree, or better yet a great top for a bottle of wine or cider for your holiday host and hostess. So darned adorable! (click pic for free pattern)
How about a mini sweater? Make it in your school’s colors or child’s team number on the front. Great way to remember sporting events every year.
Here’s some sewing ideas for wine cozies (totally free) that you can make: FREE WINE BAG PATTERNS from SewingSupport.com
My personal fave is this burlap bag, as it reminds me of my husband who refuses to say the word ‘burlap‘ correctly because he knows it irritates me. :) This is a super pattern that uses inexpensive burlap, found at your local fabric store, and simple stencil embellishment. It’s so simple, it’s crazy! I think rice bags would be a super idea if you like to recycle and repurpose things.
I didn’t give myself enough time this morning to give you more ideas, but take these and get a little creative in your gift giving and memory making.
Thinking I need to go to Trader Joe’s and get some 3-Buck Chuck and find some burlap! What do you think? :) Have a safe and memory filled Christmas.
