A bit ago this project was honored to be featured on Remodelholic. Yay me!
So anyways, another recycled post.
But…I am not sick this time. Promise.
I just think this is fun and simple…and I want to go play with my kids.
These are the stars of the show.
They are feeling pretty proud to have a purpose other then holding your pb and j!
The sewing machine will try to steal the show. Itâ€™s used to the limelight.
Just tell it to back off.
Just trace or draw your pattern on to the bag.
Try to use the sides of the bag in your stocking where you can.
Cut around the edges.
Avoid getting your shadow in picturesâ€¦not nice. (although you probably wouldnâ€™t have noticed if I didnâ€™t mention it?)
A couple more views.
See the imperfect perfectionâ€¦so charming!
I added a little heel stich. What is that called anyways?
Never fearâ€¦all the stitching was fixed and trimmed.
I had a bag of vintage ribbonâ€¦shades of green.
Perfect for Christmas!
I added some velvet ribbon from the stash to the top of the stockings.
Doesnâ€™t it add just the right touch of sophistication!
Is that possibleâ€¦sophisticated paper bag stockingsâ€¦ha!
The line up.
I only needed 3 because they were going on my bitty faux fireplace.
But, I whipped these out lickity split and imagine it wouldnâ€™t take long to make many more!
I stiched it on to a long piece of ribbon that I would use for the garland part.
Another shade of green
I took yet another shade of green ribbon from the stash and added a little bow.
Arenâ€™t they cute!
I am so pleased with how they turned out on my faux mantle. All for the cost ofâ€¦umm, nothing!
If you regularly read my blog then you knowâ€¦I love the imperfection of these!
But, if you donâ€™tâ€¦the sky is the limit with what how you could snazz these babies up!
