Whoa... It has been a hectic few weeks and can you believe it is nearly Christmas! Also, now is really a good time to get started on making some great gifts for the holidays. If you start now, you'll be ahead of crunch time so you can enjoy making them instead of being stressed. 

To help you get started, here's what I've done: I've browsed through my posts with free templates and patterns, and collected them here. These are fast and easy projects that you can start and finish in an afternoon! Totally free, and most of them are scrap busters, so you don't even need to spend time and money buying more fabric!
