Free Pattern Friday: 8 Christmas in July Patterns and Projects

Posted by on Jul 11, 2014 in Crocheting, Embroidery, Knitting, Paper Crafts, Quilting, Sewing | Comments


‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through the land, not a crafter was stirring, no making by hand. Homemade quilts and knit stockings were placed by the chimney with care, because with free patterns in July, projects were finished with time to spare!

The holidays are a busy, stressful time of year. All the chaos can leave little time for the projects you love, not to mention zap your creativity. So deck the halls a little early this year! Celebrate Christmas in July for fun holiday projects you’ll enjoy making, and spend this next December cozied up, relaxing by the fire.

Merry Christmas in July to all, and to all FREE pattern delight!
