Did you see the big Shiny Happy World/FreshStitches news?
One of the things they do really well over at FreshStitches is Craft-Alongs. The big alliance won’t be official until January 1st – but we’re jumping in now with a shared holiday Craft-Along! 🙂
Join in the fun!
Pick a holiday pattern. Any holiday pattern from Shiny Happy World or FreshStitches. It can be a Christmas pattern or a winter pattern or a new year’s pattern – whatever you and your family celebrate at this time of year. (It can be a free pattern or a pattern from the shops. Keep reading below for some suggestions and links.)
Hop on over to the Shiny Happy People and tell us that you’re participating and what you’re making. You can share photos of your materials and your work in progress as we go along. We’d love to see bits and pieces as you make it!
There’s a Holiday CAL post pinned to the top of the Shiny Happy People page – so it will be the first thing everyone sees. 🙂
With about a week to go until the end of December we’ll pin a new post to the top of the page – a new one especially for sharing your finished project. Entries close on December 31 and we’ll pick a winner from all the photos/comments on the new post. There will be a prize!
Here are some pattern ideas with links for more. . .
Make a holiday amigurumi! Scroll through all the FreshStitches patterns here.
Make a Christmas quilt – or a tote bag, stocking, or something else with some Christmas applique on it. All of my Christmas quilt patterns are free and you can find them here. You can find other quilt patterns here.
Make something seasonal for your Dress Up Bunch doll! You can find all the patterns for dolls and doll clothes here.
Stitch up a Christmas ornament! You can buy discounted bundles in the sets as shown – but all the patterns are also available individually so you can pick and choose your favorites. Find them all here. You can also find a few free ornament patterns here.
No matter what your craft of choice is and what holiday you celebrate – Shiny Happy World and FreshStitches are sure to have a pattern for you. And we can’t wait to see what you make!
