Martha, who blogs at Weekend Doings is a wonderfully talented blogger who takes the most beautiful photos of her makes. Martha's photos of the produce from her garden will have you drooling :) Martha has a very stylish iPad cover to share with you this month.
Chelsea, who blogs at the brilliantly named Patch the Giraffe is sharing her tutorial for a Flying Geese Christmas tree pillow that you should definitely check out. Having made a tree skirt last month Chelsea is definitely a Ho, Ho, Ho-er :)
As ever our mission is to have you all organised and calm by the time December 25th comes around, and to help us we have gathered together a great bunch of bloggers, who are posting tutorials for gift and home decoration projects throughout the year. You can find all of the previous tutorials by following the link at the top of the page.
Of course, it wouldn't be a Ho, Ho, Ho and on We Sew Link Party without a giveaway and this month's giveaway comes courtesy of the lovely people at the Fat Quarter Shop
This month one lucky winner will get to pick their favourite from the Fat Quarter Shop's range of mini charm packs, and all you have to do is link up your Christmas or Holiday makes for July to be in with a chance of winning. The winner of last month's giveaway was Sue, who blogs at SuperMom - No Cape!
My own Christmas make this month was inspired by a block that I made several months ago for the Fat Stash Brit Bee.
The block is from this book Modern Holiday by Amanda Murphy.
I thought when I made it that it would make a nice cushion cover (the pattern in the book is for a quilt). So that is what I did!
I used red linen for the background and the wreath fabrics were all from a pile of layer cake Christmas fabrics that I received in a fabric swap a couple of years ago. It is difficult to see from the photo but the red linen has a Christmas bell pattern woven in to it, so was ideal for this Christmas cushion. Needless to say the linen fabric was brought back from Latvia and there is a lot more where that came from :)
So, now it is your turn to share your Christmas and holiday makes for July, you can link up either with Martha at Weekend Doings or with Chelsea at Patch the Giraffe, the choice is yours!
As you know we couldn't do this without the support of these generous sponsors who have provided us with such great prizes throughout the year.
