Do you love holiday crafts? Do you love making things? Me toooo!!!! And I love to sew and to quilt… (But you probably already knew that!) Sometimes it’s just really nice to make something fast and easy that doesn’t involve as much time as a quilt or a garment. Hold onto your Santa hats because I’m going to share with you a few festive projects that won’t take you weeks to make. Plus, these holiday crafts make awesome gifts!
1. Iron-On Quilt Patches, Shapes, Letters, and More – I like to iron-on “stuff.” It’s my fave, really. You simply use an iron and voila! It looks like you have really put a lot of effort into a project. The only problem is whether or not to tell the truth when someone asks how long it took you to make it! Ha! With iron-on applique shapes, letters, and quilt patches, you can make an item look like you spent hours on it, when really it took minutes. I’ve mentioned before how much I love the iron-on quilt patches. My favorite item I’ve decorated with the patches is my denim jacket. (You can see the post about my original denim jacket that inspired the Christmas one here.) Because I loved the bright patches so much, I also bought the Christmas patches. They did not disappoint! These patches could be ironed onto jackets, shirts, throw pillows, and more.
2. Quilt Board Kits – These quilt board kits are so much fun! They make adorable gifts and are easy enough that even kids can make them. These kits require no sewing and are a fun way to turn your fabric stash into a beautiful work of art. Using the back of a small seam ripper, simply tuck your pieces of fabric into the precut grooves of the adhesive backed quilt board. These projects are perfect for beginners! Shop the selection of quilt board kits here.
3. Wool Felt – Wool felt projects are fun and oh, so cute! Kits come with everything you need to finish the project. Wool felt projects are great to keep in a project bag and you can take them on the go with you. I love giving homemade gifts but sometimes I don’t have the time to make a big gift and wool felt projects are a great alternative. If you’re shopping for some cute wool felt projects, you can find some at Missouri Star Quilt Co., or by clicking here.
Gosh, I hope you guys have as much fun as I do when I’m making these fun crafty Christmas projects! The only con to any of these ideas is that I want to keep everything I make instead of giving them as gifts! Ha! Happy holiday sewing to one and all!
‘Til next time,
