The sun is shining, the garden is blooming and there’s not a cloud in the sky. July is the perfect month to think about ....... Christmas! Yep, you heard right. Warm, relaxed, summer days, or evenings, are the perfect time to complete a little Christmas project – something quick and easy that will give you a sense of being ready for the end of year festivities.

Of course, there are always mug rugs to make - perfect for gifts, table decorations and wall art. Mug rugs are ideal for sending through the post (lightweight and small), for batch making for colleagues at work and for using up some of those scraps left over from a larger project.
But if you fancy something a little bit different then how about stringing up some yuletide bunting with the 'JOY' bunting pattern.
This pattern is very simple, very quick and very effective - all you need is one charm pack, a length of ribbon and my free Joy Bunting PDF pattern.
You could always create bunting using the cheeky Gingerbread men from my Gingerbread Cup mug rug pattern.
Whether you prefer hand or machine stitching – these guys will always turn out sweet and whilst I hope you buy my Gingerbread Cup mug rug pattern for the gingerbread man template – you really don’t have to – a cookie cutter would work just as well.
