Is there anything more fun than polka dots? This whimsical, wonderful motif is so popular right now and it?s easy to see why. Polka dots can be small and subtle or bold and wild. In black and white, polka dots give off a retro vibe that?s unlike any design element you?d find today. This holiday season, incorporate this fun design into your Christmas stocking crafts, quilts and table runners. Need some ideas to get you started? Don?t worry, we?ve got you covered.
This month, AllFreeChristmasCrafts is giving away a copy of Polka Dot Christmas by Sue Harvey and Sandy Boobar. This book is filled with creative ideas, easy-to-follow tutorials and, of course, polka dots galore! The authors have 40 years of quilting experience between them, so you know you?re in good hands when working on these creative projects.
If you aren?t interested in creating a quilt, don?t worry. There are plenty of projects in Polka Dot Christmas that feature quilting techniques. For example, you can make a festive stocking or a brilliant table runner by simply following along with the tutorial provided in this book.
Besides featuring projects, this Polka Dot Christmas includes a variety of edging tutorials. The authors explain how to add scallops, prairie points and more to your patterns. Not only will you make great Christmas crafts, but you?ll learn something new with help from this book.
To celebrate Christmas in July, start working on more time-consuming crafts like Christmas quilts and table decorations. That way you can save on stress when the holiday season rolls around. With Polka Dot Christmas, you won?t have any trouble finding inspiration for your next Christmas craft. It?s only too bad the weather outside won?t match the Christmas spirit inside your crafting space!
Enter to win one copy of Polka Dot Christmas!
This giveaway ends July 18th.
