Christmas Kitsch Baskets {my stop on the Christmas in July Blog Hop & giveaway!}


I’ve said it before, but I really believe that Christmas in July was invented by sewists & quiltmakers because now is when we start our holiday projects! Otherwise they would never be done in time, lol. 

So I’m super excited that my friends at Blend Fabrics invited me to be a part of their Christmas in July blog hop that features the new Christmas Kitsch collection from Anna Griffin. 

These fabrics mix kitschy and elegant, traditional and modern, and made my holiday baskets turn out beautiful!


Who wouldn’t love to receive a gift like this… a little surprise tucked in a handmade patchwork basket???

{oh, and my little surprises are toilet paper, napkins, and an empty box, lol! I’m using these baskets for holiday decor.}

The baskets nest too… the pattern for these is only available in my Craftsy class Colorful Patchwork Bags and Baskets so you get to SEE me sewing them up. Use my personal link to get the class and have it in your account forever.

And just so you know, my baskets started as 3 1/2”, 4 1/2”, and 6 1/2” squares. Just about any size is possible (think scraps and pre-cuts!).

And in case you didn’t notice, Blend fabrics is sponsoring my SewCanShe giveaway this week and giving away this gorgeous bundle of 14 Christmas Kitsch fat quarters. Make sure you click over and get every entry… this bundle is going to brighten someones holiday sewing for sure!

Anna Griffin’s entire Christmas Kitsch fabric collection is also available at Fat Quarter Shop if you have to have some right now. ๐Ÿ™‚
