Karen Rhodes said...

The only holiday item I've ever sewn were Christmas stockings. But now that I'm retired I'm sure there will be a lot of holiday projects in my future.

ShirleyC said...

I've been trying to post for a while. I hope this one will go through. I do like to make seasonal things for my grandkids, and mostly my granddaughter. I would make a whole lot more, but they all wear uniforms to school so they can't wear as many of the cute embroidered shirts like I used to make them. I love making Christmas outfits for Shelby!

brownj6610 said...

Yes, I just finished a Xmas tree queen sized quilt and a table runner for the Fourth of July and one for Thanksgiving. Love them.

Genee' Davis said...

Yes, I sew for the major Christian holidays and as a retired military wife, I always sew patriotic themes as well. As far as seasonal, I tend to do "fall" or harvest themes so they go throughout the 2 seasons. And, of course snowmen! :-) they are too cute!! ;-)

I have done a tad of sewing for Christmas and would like to branch out for other holidays. I'd like to have some things to either give to my children now or later so not only they but their children will have great memories from them.

I am a holiday theme person but as soon as the holiday is over so is the project for me but only for the major holidays these cute banners could be used all the time.

Mom C said...

I have a bin with theme fabric but no, I generally don't make specific holiday projects, I don't get started soon enough! and then they get put away until the next year by which time I've lost my enthusiasm and probably the pattern. But I love the fabrics and probably will continue to buy. Thanks.

Not recently but I have in the past. I'd like to do some new projects, though!

Amy said...

I do sew Halloween, Valentine's Day and Christmas projects.
