It’s never too early or too late to sew for Christmas – that’s my motto all year long! Here are 35+ favorite Christmas sewing projects… and at the bottom there’s a link to 25 of my favorite gifts to sew!



By far, my favorite Christmas sewing project ever is the Christmas Gnome that I made last year. He’s so jolly and adorable, I think it’s time to take him out again.



After you’ve sewn a Christmas gnome, I’m sure you will want a quilt to go with him! My Holiday Gnome Quilt includes 2 blocks that you can sew into a small or large quilt!

Sew some adorable Gnome Christmas Ornaments too! Gnomes are in and I love them for every season.

My ‘Oh Holy Night’ Christmas Quilt wall hanging will make the perfect backdrop for your nativity scene.
