We’re a little behind because everyone who creates things for Christmas knows that it all begins in June. Whether you’re going for the party dress, presents, or just some Christmas decorations, we’d all better get our skates on.
The nicest part about seasonal fabric projects is that there are several brand-new Christmas patterns to pick from when replenishing your fabric collection, and here are a few Christmas fabric gift and decoration ideas for this holiday season.
Christmas Fabric Decorations
First and foremost, let’s start with the decorations;
You can never have enough bunting. The versatility of bunting is fantastic; you may use it on a Christmas tree, but it may also be used in other areas of the home to really bring some holiday brightness, such as on your bannisters, doorways, or even across the ceiling.
When we were looking into seasonal bunting, we discovered that there are several alternatives that depart from the standard triangular-shaped bunting. For example, you may cut out little green Christmas trees or festive red hearts, and there are a few more unusual shapes like rectangles that are great for displaying a more intricate print of Rudolph or other Christmas characters.
Making a unique Christmas tablecloth is another fantastic, yet easy method to bring the holidays into your house. We have a comprehensive collection of Christmas prints on a wider width fabric at Fabrics Galore, making it easier than ever before to use them as a tablecloth or runner.
If you’re searching for a timeless table runner and were considering something heavier, our most recent upholstery cloths would be ideal and you can’t go wrong with gingham or ticking.
Christmas is all about spending time with family and friends, but the most essential thing is receiving a lot of gifts. Of course, Father Christmas can’t leave any presents if you don’t have the appropriate stocking, so this is one of the most important textile projects. This year at Fabrics Galore, we’re thinking that Scandi-vibe stockings may be attractive, therefore it’s great that we just received a fantastic range of new Scandinavian Christmas designs.
The Snow Globe quilt by Suzie Quilts is made out of Nordic Christmas fabrics, which are also patchworked and quilting-weight cotton. They’re great for this Quilted Stocking by Suzie Quilts since they’re printed on a calico-like background and are therefore readily available as a lining or backing.
We considered adding a touch of lovely cream bouclé to the top of our stockings for an extra touch of elegance.
Christmas Presents To Make
Now that you’ve acknowledged it, Christmas is all about giving gifts;
We started by looking at the second most essential person at Christmas (after Father Christmas, of course): the chef. And to demonstrate some great handmade presents for them, we’ll start with some festive oven gloves. This Bombazine Oven Mitt free pattern is really adorable and ideal for making as a Christmas present.
The ideal fabric for this Christmas sewing project is a little heavier cotton, and our furnishing weight Christmas prints are perfect for an oven mitt project. Even more significantly, we also have a heat-protective lining for oven gloves on hand, as the design implies, and you may use up some of your unused material rags to make extra special presents this holiday season.
It’s worth noting that the heavier Christmas designs would also make a great apron for someone who has been working in the kitchen all day.
