Have you seen what’s happening over on Sew Mama Sew this month? It’s the Handmade Holidays y’all!
Every year since 2007 Sew Mama Sew has put together tutorial roundups for everyone you can imagine needing a gift for. One theme every day! I got hooked on these a few years ago and they are an amazing source of information. This year they are having guest curators who have spent many hours searching the internet for gift tutorials based on a category they have suggested. The lists are an amazing resource that can be used all year long – especially when you need something unique for that hard-to-buy-for person and you need an idea (or 20!).
Today’s “Gifts for Geeks” led me to this amazing LEGO-endorsed Star Wars quilt – and the patterns for the paper piecing are amazingly available for free! My husband would LOVE this quilt!
Just in case you want to get stuck online doing something other than searching Pinterest today, here are the links to the past 6 Handmade Holiday Master Lists – and you can go directly to Sew Mama Sew for the first 6 posts of this month! (and then of course go there every day until the end of November for more!)

Since I don’t want to get sucked into making too many of these for Christmas, I have made myself a giant list for this month already! Instead I will be pinning my favorite amazing projects to start in December? or maybe April…. – whenever my work runs out!
This is great! Thank you!
I’m glad you like it – I’m sure you “need” more ideas for sewing 😉
I love everything she puts up all through November. I’m so excited to see what she shares the rest of this month – and I look forward to seeing all of the projects you make, too. 🙂
Hi Stacia, It’s so addictive too! I’m sure I don’t need to add to my “to do” list but it sure is fun!
