Christmas in July, anyone? My brain refuses to think so far ahead, but I know that many of you are far more organized and ready to tackle holiday projects. In Linda Lum DeBono’s new book, Sew Merry and Bright: 20 Easy, Fun, and Festive Patterns, she gets the inspiration stirring early.
With all the typical holiday projects covered from stockings, to ornaments, to home decor and countdown calendars, you can give your home some handmade cheer for the holidays. The book is full of bright, happy patterns, clear instructions and simple projects. Many of the projects can be customized to suit other holidays or made with your choice of fabrics. For instance, the table runner, quilt and pillow are fun projects for any time of year.
Linda has sent me an extra copy of the book to give away! Please leave a comment by Wednesday, July 25 at midnight eastern to enter. Tell me about your favorite handmade decorations for the holidays. I will ship to the U.S. and Canada.
