With Christmas creeping up on us, now is the time to start sewing any handmade Christmas presents your planning on giving- if you haven't already!
I've gathered together a list of projects and tutorials, perfect for family and friends to hopefully provide you with the inspiration you need to get making!

There is often a lot to do to in preparation for Christmas, so starting your sewing as early as possible is always a good call.
