The Stockings were hung

But not by the chimney this year. I hung them in the dining room.
Going right along with the burlap trend again, I decided to sew up some stockings. I  drew out the shape with chalk on burlap, sewed them up, added a little embellishment and that’s it.
I added some greenery and hung them from a shelf in the dining room. The white poinsettia is actually much prettier than in this picture. I wrapped the base in burlap and added some curly gold ting ting. The small nativity was from Kirklands, several years ago.
My first attempt at making fabric flowers was successful….at least I think so. I used pieces of fabric from my stash. A fabric stash is a good thing.                Am I imagining it or do you hear Martha Stewart too?
This one is edged with some of the piping I got at the thrift store and tied with a burlap bow. 11The stocking aren’t lined and probably should be for added strength and so nothing could poke through the burlap. I’ve seen many versions of burlap stockings lately and lots of rolled flower tutorials……do a search and you’ll come up with plenty of ideas and inspiration to make your own.
I still didn’t make any cookies, but I’m fixin to real soon. Be right back
How about you?

    Your stockings are sweet, Debbie! I love your stocking holders, too! When we were kids, we didn't have a fireplace in our house in Brooklyn. Our stockings were hung on the side of our staircase, which gave us great birds eye views as we ran down Christmas morning!
