One of the wonderful things about Christmas is that so many people around the world have been celebrating it with their families for generations. This results in fun traditions that maybe we don’t always know the source of, but we do them every year regardless. I love listening to stories of how the older generation in my family used to celebrate the holidays when they were younger – while a few things may have changed (they definitely didn’t have the movie Elf or ironic Christmas sweaters back in the day) the feelings of family and love have stayed the same.
If you want to re-live the magic of Christmases past, when everyone gathered around the radio instead of the TV, I’ve gathered up 24 vintage sewing patterns for you to use to decorate your home or your tree! These sewing projects are all grandma-approved and are sure to add an adorable vintage vibe to your family’s Christmas celebration.
