Holiday Bake Craft Sew Along!

Posted by  ·  September 1, 2011  ·  Last Updated: September 1, 2011

For the entire month of September  we will be baking, sewing & crafting up a storm, preparing handmade gifts for this holiday season.

Dust off your sewing machine!  I will be sharing 30 wonderful sewn gifts from 30 amazing bloggers!  You will also want to head on over to According to Kelly for  30 fabulous crafty gifts. A Southern Fairytale will be spotlighting 30 edible yummies & holiday-inspired recipes.You definitely don’t want to miss a day!  Check out ALL of our creative projects  HERE.

Our goal is to encourage everyone to start preparing for their handmade holidays now. If we “bake, craft & sew” now , by the end of the craft along, we will be VERY prepared for the upcoming Holiday season… hopefully eliminating just a wee bit of stress.
