From Fabric Inspired by French Grain sack
Oh, the look and the texture of true French Grain sack….it’s beauty in simplicity. This fabric comes so very close. It is so beautiful and so versatile.
Christmas Stockings For Christmas Party
Each year we host a Christmas party. Each year I make gifts for the Left Right game we like to play. One year I made bath salts and soaps and another I made granola and hot chocolate mix. This year I made several stockings for the game.
A Dozen Stockings
I made for the party a dozen stockings…initially I intended to only make them from the fabric with the red stripes. I didn’t quite have enough, so I included several from the fabric with the blue stripe – I think they both work quite well.
Gathered in French Laundry Basket
As I was making the stockings I laid them in the little French laundry basket from Sunday Brocantes– then I was struck by how lovely they looked in it. I may need to make some of these for myself!
Beautiful Christmas Decor
I can imagine a few of these stockings hanging from a fireplace mantel or in the kitchen…there are a few potential decorative uses for these stockings.
What will I fill them with?
Well, I’ll have to hold off on that…there needs to be some surprise for my guests!
I adapted the stockings from the pattern by McCall – following their directions. It is intended for quilted or fat quarters and lined with interfacing. I was well pleased with how this fabric worked out.
I hope you give this pattern a try! If you’d like to find this fabric – keep up with Decor Steals – they offer it quite often!
