Christmas is nearly here!
I love the Christmas holiday season. So many excuses to sew fun Christmas projects. While my kids are older now, I still enjoy it and love to find fun stuff to sew. Who knows, eventually I'll be able to do it for my grandkids, I hope, so I want to keep my holiday sewing skill sharp!
One of the most popular figures in Christmas sewing is that of Santa Claus who is also known as Saint Nicholas, Father Christmas, Kris Kringle, or usually just Santa. According to legend, Santa brings gifts to the hearths and homes of good, well-behaved children, on the night of December 24 often using the fireplace chimney to gain access to the premises. Cookies and milk are often left for Santa as well as the occasional carrot for the reindeer who pull Santa's sleigh of toys around the world all in one night.
Kids usually grow out of the Santa legend before they're ten, but I think he is still a wonderful part of the Christmas tradition so I wanted to commemorate it with a big collection of Santa Sewing Patterns, just in time for the holidays.
Here's one of our fun Christmas sewing projects:
Another important tradition with the Santa legend is that the children hang stockings on the fireplace mantel and Santa leaves little gifts for the well-behaved. Originally, kids used to use real socks but these days most use purpose-made socks that are much bigger for obvious reasons.
While you can easily buy these in stores, nothing helps make Christmas special like have homemade and handmade Christmas stockings, so here's an easy Christmas Stockings Tutorial if you want to give it a try.
