When do you start making your Christmas gifts? If you are like me, you’d be crocheting all year round 🙂 But, to be honest, July is a great time to start making gifts. It gives us enough time to pick the right projects for our loved ones and make them in time for Christmas. We don’t have to rush and we can make some larger projects with ample time at hand!
Now that we have established that July is a great time to start working on our gifts, what’s better than a bunch of free patterns that are perfect to make as gifts?
What to expect
I am participating in the Christmas in July Make Along with Underground Crafter. You are welcome to join the fun! 28 bloggers have teamed up and put together a month of free patterns to kick start the handmade holiday season – including crochet, knitting, sewing, and other crafting projects. There’s something new to make every day in July!
Each week in the Make Along will have a theme –
Week 1 (July 1-7): Gifts for Babies, Kids, and Teens
Week 2 (July 8-14): Gifts for Women
Week 3 (July 15-21): Gifts for Anyone
Week 4 (July 22-28): Gifts for Home
Week 5 (July 29-31): Gifts for Pets
We’ve also partnered with some of our favorite companies to get some great prizes for you. The deadline for entering the giveaway is Wednesday, August 4, 2021 at 11:59 p.m. Eastern.
