The holiday season is upon us! Time to enjoy family, traditions, and celebrations. In keeping with holiday traditions, we’ll be making handmade items. We hope you will, too. NZP’s Fast Projects for the Holidays sewing round up is a collection of festive and quick sewing tutorials. Sew items for yourself or gift them to someone special. Gather fabrics from your stash, grab a new collection of fat quarters, or start with ready-made/recycled items. There’s a project here for everyone!

Festive Tree Skirt: With a small investment of time, you can create a Christmas Tree Skirt that will showcase the center of your holiday decorations. Choose fat quarter cuts or use fabric from your stash to create the wedge shapes. The sewing is streamlined; the end result is a boutique-style decoration.  Enjoy!

Holiday Peppermint Mug Rugs: Stitch the perfect stocking stuffer, a gift for a friend, or an accent for your home using fabric scraps! Our easy-to-sew mug rug pattern is ideal to stitch using a peppermint theme. In no time, create a set of festive drink coasters.

Festive Napkins: We love to set a special dinner table with cloth napkins. Adding a simple, and we stress the word simple, design makes it even more festive. That’s when the idea dawned on us to use the Circles Sew Simple Tool to add the traditional ornament shape to napkins.

Quick Pot Holders: Make these pot holders for your big holiday meal or as a unique hostess gift. The project can be created in minutes using a few simple tricks.

Christmas Tree NapkinsWith two coordinating fabric prints and a little serging savvy, you’re on your way to creating functional as well as festive napkins. Give a set as a gift, or make a set for your holiday entertaining. It’s a fun project. Here’s a preview of the serging process.

Lumberjack Pillow—from a flannel shirt:  We call this recycled-garment project the Lumberjack Pillow, although you could make this from a loved ones’ shirt and sew a memory pillow as well. The technique used to fit the shirt around the pillow form allows for many shirts and pillow sizes to be created easily.

Wrapped Pillows for All Seasons:  You can easily change your home décor with a little fabric and a great embroidery design with this pillow wrap project. Embroider a seasonal motif on fabric or choose an elegant fabric design to complement your décor.

Her comment is: I loved watching Nancy sew with her granddaughters. I taped the final show and watch it often. She inspires me to sew and do other crafts with my grandchildren.
