Handmade Holidays Nov. 19: Gifts to Deck the Halls

It’s almost time to Deck the Halls (or have you started already?!). Here are some cute and easy projects to round out your holiday decor!

Today’s Guest Curator: Lauren from Molly and Mama

Lauren joined us earlier this year with her Happy Day Liberty Doll’s Quilt. You can learn more about her work in her Sew Mama Sew introduction.

From Lauren: I’m Lauren from Molly and Mama and I’m so excited to bring you this curated collection of Christmas tutorials!

An Australian Christmas is so warm and bright. It’s all about swimming, salads and sun. And as much as I love it, I long to experience a Northern Hemisphere Christmas one day. I try to conjure a little of the “cool yule” at home by giving my Christmas decor a theme. So I’ve included a range of tutorials here that embody a traditional festive season and will truly help you “Deck the Handmade Halls.” Whether creating for your own home or making a gift for others, you’re sure to find a perfect project. There are a lot of felt-inspired projects here too, as I just love felt as a sewing medium; it’s so versatile and easy to work with! And just quietly, I couldn’t resist adding a tropical inspired decoration to help our Southern Hemisphere readers feel right at home!

If you’d like to know more about Molly and Mama you can pop by the blog. You’ll find a gorgeous collection of free sewing tutorials, and much more! There’s a range of PDF applique templates and pin cushion patterns in my Etsy store. Or follow along on Facebook or Pinterest. Happy sewing!
