With Thanksgiving just around the corner it may be too late to get an involved project finished but there are some smaller projects you have plenty of time to tackle. Decorating for Thanksgiving can be simple or extravagant. Here are some projects that would fall into the simple category; some have a little machine sewing or some hand sewing.
- Felt leaves: these leaves can be used in many different projects and require just a little bit of work.
- Turkey Centerpiece: Sew this easy project and add flowers and you are good to go.
- Burlap Wreath: Pretty on the front door or inside the home.
- Linen napkins: Add a pop of color and use for years to come.
- Quick Table Runner: Use fall colored fabrics and contrasted threads for a unique effect.
- Placemats: “The best part of this project is how simple the mats are to sew.”
For inexpensive fabric to complete projects check out the remnant section at you local fabric store, or buy fat quarters or any other “quilting” pieces. I am a sucker for the remnant section at my local Joann Fabrics. Stop into a local shop like Venezie Fabrics and see what they have for scraps, or ask the ladies at Fabric Stash and see what they can suggest.
No matter how you do it or what you make, choose a project that is not going to stress you out. Enjoy what you do and enjoy the season. Let your family be thankful you can sew.
