Here are some more tutorials to help you Deck the Halls: Christmas tutorials, 2012 Deck the Halls tutorials here, here, here, here and here.

Today’s Guest Curator: Elisa from Charming Doodle

Elisa developed a passion for sewing unique clothing for her children. She shares her sewing and DIY adventures at Charming Doodle, where she shares tutorials, projects around her lovely home and more. Elisa loves celebrating the holidays with her husband and four children, and has had her tree up for a few weeks already!

Elisa has started a new line of PDF sewing patterns. She believes that PDF sewing patterns should be fun to sew and beautiful to look at as you complete your project. Her patterns are exactly that… Fun, easy and charming.

(US Winners Only)

Author: Diane Gilleland, Christina Lane
Publisher: C&T Publishing

Is it the finished quilt itself, or the experiences you had while making it? Do you find more joy in designing a beautiful pattern or in improvising as you go? Are you happiest when making quilts for yourself or for others? Whether it is delighting in the colors and textures of your materials to the sweet satisfaction of curling up under a handmade quilt, quilting holds infinite possibilities for exploring the many joys of creativity.

Mollie Makes Crochet: 20+ Cute Projects for the Home Plus Handy Tips and Tricks
(US Winners Only)

Publisher: Interweave

Crochet is big fashion news, and is becoming more and more popular among young crafters. This adorable new book from the team behind Mollie Makes is all one needs to learn how to crochet. Aimed at complete beginners, it’s also perfect for those who have completed their first projects and are looking to move on. A selection of more than 20 contemporary projects from an international range of crochet experts offers a variety of projects. Some are quick and easy, others are more time and labor-intensive but well worth the effort. A section at the back of the book clearly explains the basics of crochet with step-by-step illustrations. The book includes ideas for using crocheted pieces around the home: as accessories in themselves and to embellish existing items as trims and more. Projects include blankets and afghans; cushions; kitchen items such as placemats, crochet-trimmed napkins, potholders, and coasters; and toys and gifts.

Flip Dolls & Other Toys That Zip, Stack, Hide, Grab & Go

Why make an ordinary stuffed toy when you can sew irresistible creations that flip, zip, snap, stack and move? Filled with wit, humor and inventiveness, these delightful interactive playthings sometimes literally turn your expectations inside out. Page after page of clever projects include a caterpillar that changes into a butterfly, a vampire who becomes a bat, and ordinary dolls that transform into superheroes! Or stitch a pretty bird that perches on your shoulder, bunnies that bounce, a car with spinning wheels and other amazing toys.

Stuffed Animals
(International Shipping)

Author: Abigail Patner Glassenberg
Publisher: Lark Crafts

Are you ready for a soft toy book that goes beyond the basics? Here, for the first time in decades, is a comprehensive reference that shows how to sew heirloom-quality stuffed animals, including a classic Teddy bear. Each of the 16 projects contains two-to-five lessons that teach such skills as needle sculpting, designing “cupped” ears, and making muzzles, snouts and beaks.
