This holiday season I'd really like to focus on projects that bring us together with our family, friends and ourselves.
Sewing by myself is very relaxing. Especially if it's an easy project like this. I can prep 5 of these little characters in no time at all for a Gingerfriend decorating party.
Likewise, my kids are at that age where they are more interested in sewing. This project is great for them because it's simple enough and fast enough to build quick confidence. And it's not just a great confidence builder for kids, it works for teens and adults, too. We all start somewhere.
So, let's get sewing!
