Written by Laura Chaney, daughter

Countdown to Christmas Prairie Sewn Studios

Are you ready to kick off an exciting holiday season? We sure are! The fall and winter holiday season  is one of our favorite times of the year. Not only are there lots of tasty treats and sweets, but it's also the perfect time of year to make homemade gifts for all the friends and family on your list this year.

To help you along the way, Prairie Sewn Studios will be sharing our series of TWELVE crafts and sewing projects that you can make and gift (or keep!) to make your holiday season a little bit more festive.

Many of these projects will require our book, Contain It! English Paper-Pieced Style Accessories.  Free downloads with the supply list, instructions, and any additional pattern pieces will be available to complete your masterpieces.

  2. What a fabulous idea Laura and Linda!
    I'm hoping my commitments will grow lighter by the end of November, so hopefully I will be able to participate in the December projects. But I'll be oohing and ahhing along the way!
