Christmas in July

Free Project Instructions!


As you enjoy a warm and sunny summer day, it is the perfect time to start thinking about Santa. Christmas will be here faster than a flying reindeer, and now is the time to get a jump start on your holiday planning with exciting new designs.

Santa and Mrs. Claus are enjoying their summer vacation, and are finding time for some of their favorite hobbies. See them stitching, golfing, and racing their festive roadster. These designs make wonderful his-and-her stockings, towels, and framed pieces for home decor.

Beautifully detailed Victorian roses and dynamic Christmas stripes are available in a wide variety of shapes. Add a splash of seasonal cheer to stockings, tree skirts, towels, and holiday table linens.

When Santa's away, the Christmas critters are at play! Sweet, colorful animals are dressed up as Santa and his reindeer, ready to bring a holly-jolly handful of fun to tree skirts, shirts, stockings, and more.

Roomy mittens make great stockings and wall-hangings, while smaller mittens are fun
gift card holders and tree decorations.
