July is a popular month in the sewing and quilting community, not just for the warmer weather and longer days, but because it’s when sewists and quilters usually start planning what they’ll be making for the holiday season!
We recently featured tons of Christmas and winter-themed sewing projects on Sew Together Tuesday that make perfect gifts and home decorations (if you haven’t checked it out, click here), but for the rest of the month, we wanted to take it one step further.
Below we’ve listed four holiday sewing patterns for “Christmas in July” that work especially well with Cuddle® minky fabric, and we want to see YOU put your own spin on them!
That’s right, chose from any of the four patterns below (note two are free, and two are paid) and once you’ve finished your project, upload and submit the form below to be entered to win one of 300 two-yard cuts of Cuddle® minky fabric! Entries must be received by 11:59 pm PT, August 31.*
The Shannon Fabrics team will also be hand selecting our 10 favorite uploaded projects and featuring them in an upcoming blog post that will be shared on our Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest, as well as in our editorial newsletter!
We can’t wait to see what you make, and as always, thank you for Making The World A Softer Place™ not just around the holidays, but all year long!
