Easy Christmas Sewing Projects To Start Making Today
Christmas is my favourite time of year, and I love Christmas sewing. There are always a tonne of wonderful festive fabrics to choose from. Or you can choose to be more contemporary with your material choices. But all these sewing project ideas are pretty easy. And some are perfect to give as gifts too!
Padded Fabric Christmas Trees
I absolutely love these padded trees. They make a great table centrepiece or festive home decoration. And they are brilliant gifts. Find the tutorial to make them here.
Reusable Christmas Crackers
These Christmas crackers are also a lovely festive table decoration. And the perfect way to make the day more zero waste, as Christmas crackers are so environmentally unfriendly! Find how to make them here.
These are a lovely idea for your Christmas table or just as great surface protectors generally around your house when you have guests. They are the one of the most easy Christmas sewing projects to make. They make perfect gifts. And you can make larger versions to act as placemats for your Christmas table! See how they are made here.
DIY Drawstring Bags
Want to be more zero waste with your gift giving? Then drawstring bags are a brilliant way of wrapping presents. The recipient can reuse the bag or even use it to gift again in the future. No more wasteful and expensive gift wrapping paper. Plus, you can make massive versions (maybe consider up cycling old bedding?) to make a drawstring gift sack like the Frozen one below. Here is how you can easily make your own.
Christmas would not be Christmas without making some Christmas stockings to hang on the mantle. There are some lovely tutorials out there, but this one is one of my favourites.
Bunting is a lovely way of making your home look festive. And this guide to make the easiest bunting ever means that you can whip up a whole load of quick bunting that you can reuse year after year. Find the tutorial here.
A festive quilt is one of the nicest ways to make your bedroom look ready for Christmas. They do take a while to make, but they look amazing once made. This is one project that does need to be started well beforehand! Here are some great ideas.
It may not be totally festive, but a lot of people have commented that this heart garland also makes a lovely Christmas decoration. See the tutorial on how to make it.
Free Motion Christmas Decorations
These are a brilliant idea to use up all your fabric scraps at the end of sewing. Find the pattern templates for these lovely tree decorations and the tutorial on how to make them.
Advent Calendar Bags
These lovely advent calendar treat bags are really easy to make and are a great way to lead up to the big day. Put a chocolate, sweets or a small gift in each bag, and the whole thing can be reused year after year, which is a great way to have a more zero waste Christmas. Find the simple tutorial here.
Another brilliant way of using up all the tiny fabric scraps is making your Christmas cards using your fabric scraps. Use free motion embroidery to make the prettiest cards that everyone will love. Find the tutorial here.
And finally, Christmas in the Northern hemisphere is known for being one of the coldest times of the year. So why not make some of these rice heating pads to help keep everyone warm. They are perfect for hand warmers, but you can make a larger version to warm up shoulders and ease aches and pains. Find out how to make them here.
