It’s August 25- that means it is 4 months until Christmas. I think it is reasonable to start talking about Christmas projects now, right? I have asked some of my friends to share some of their Christmas sewing projects with us. I think you will enjoy these!

First, Jenny of Elefantz shares her Vintage Bunting tutorial. This is very elegant looking, but you could make it country, or cottage-y, or whatever suits your fancy based on the fabrics and trims that you choose. Tutorial here.
