Each year, when it's time to put up the Christmas tree and decorate the house, I'm filled with joy as I pull out my handmade Christmas decorations. They bring back wonderful memories of Christmases gone by. There are always decorations I've forgotten about and the memories come flooding back. (It also gives me a chance to reflect on how much my sewing has improved!)
One of the things I love about Christmas is all the opportunities to sew. There are so many options for Christmas projects to sew, and you have the opportunity to create something that will last for years. Each year, when you pull out your handmade decorations, you'll think about when you made it and all the love you put into it (and maybe wonder about how much your sewing skills have improved!).
Handmade Christmas decorations are so much more special than the store-bought variety, and I love sewing Christmas decorations. They are so fun and happy to make.
