Free Quilt, Craft,and Gift Patterns for All of the Winter Holidays: Updated for 2015


It is cold and snowing here, in Salem, Oregon...the wood stove is burning non-stop for our heat, the hot chocolate/tea/and coffee is being sipped, and  we have 'moving' quilts and a tarp on top of the chicken coop and a little heater blowing in warmth so they don't get frostbite on their combs and feet!

I'm sleeping under three quilts and two wool blankets on my side of the bed, and wearing fleece over everything during the day.

But its toasty up in my sewing loft and while I can't show my Christmas gift projects yet...suffice it to say, I am a busy bee year round so why wouldn't I be busy now?


So, in honor of the holiday season and using our own creativity for the returning of the light into the darkness and expressing all of the joy that is ours to claim...free snowman quilt and quilt block patterns...lots of fun Christmas crafts and gift ideas...and maybe just a few other fun links, besides!



Making Mug Rugs and Mug Wraps!&

or Making Aprons or Making Sewing Accessories for Friends like pincushions or needle cases or pillows, or reusable shopping bags from one style and then another, carry totes, or a million other fun ornaments, table toppers, wall hangings, etc.etc.etc.!


Have lots of cute Christmas or Christmas colored fabric scraps? Take a look at this wonderful easy but 'complicated looking' tree skirt by Annie as she shares her 'musings' on her "Freeze Frame" blog. You'll need a wedge ruler and 140 5: scraps or a a nice packs of charm squares to get 130 of them. Start cutting!

Christmas Gift Ideas! 

I love making small projects, sewing room accessories and gifts for others! And I like them to be quick and easy, too!



My sewing room includes many accessories that I have designed and created, myself. I love general sewing as much as I love quilting. So, whether I am sewing with my bigger Viking Sapphire 870 Quilt... or my much tinier ...Singer Featherweight...every one in our family gets new 'clothes', accessories, and fun craft and quilting supplies!


Singer Featherweight: Sewing Accessories (small mat and a snippets bag) Tutorial

I've made my own sewing machine pocket mats, magnetic wrist pincushions and wrist protectors, pincushions, pattern weights, snippets threadcatchers, roll-up scissors holders and many different sized tote bags for quilting supplies.

I love collecting, sharing, and using so many fun patterns that I am sharing my collection with you as my 'Frugal Friday' exchange. My free patterns lists to-date includes free patterns for pincushions, scrapcatchers, needlecases, scissor holders, sewing bags, sewing machine covers, chair covers, traveling iron bags, armchair caddys, wall organizers, clothes hangers and computer monitor covers.

Like my 2,500 Free Quilt Patterns links, you must come back often, as the list will be continually updated!


   
Making mug rugs, mug and cup wraps,  and coasters...one of the easiest things to create in a hurry of all!

Making Mug Rugs and Mug Wraps!  my own sewing and crafting fun!


Making a Coffee Press Wrap! my own ...I've made at least a dozen, they are so easy, popular, and fun!

Making Potholders...my own no fail gift for holiday visiting, emergency gifts, and everyone I know!
 


Kitchen Towels, magnets...only takes an hour and you can have all of these done! I call these My

Everyday Art

 I make pillows, and potholders, and shopping bags, and pincushions, and shopping and gift bags...so of course, I share all of my own sewing tutorials but I also like to find and share ones from others. Giving and sharing is important to me in ways that go beyond what most people find time to do!
 My own heart shaped or themed tutorials:

My String Pieced Prayer Pocket Pillow make with strings or solids and use the little pocket in the back...for sending good wishes of any kind!


Making a (Cardiac) Heart Pillow
perfect for post surgery for either cardiac or breast cancer patients, hugging a pillow over the heart after cardiac surgery or under the arm after breast surgery have been shown to help significantly with post-operative pain.
