Sew Machine

Thought I would share one of the DIY Christmas projects I did for a couple of gal pals.  I couldn’t post them until they had all been given out and now that the holiday season is over and done with, take a lookie:

These Free People stockings were the inspiration for the gifts, but I will admit I don’t have the skills to create something nearly as grand.

This is Savannah’s stocking made with Laurie Smith fabric, vintage buttons & lace, and some Hobby Lobby beaded trim. My favorite part is the 1st photo with the vintage sparkly ribbon used for the hanging loop.

Megan received this one made from vintage fabric found at a flea market, Hobby Lobby lace (from Halloween diy custome) vintage lace, and pomes from a performace with Meghan’s former band, The Bonky Bonks. They threw them all over the place and pack-rat me picked up 5 or 6 for later projects, hehe. 

This was for my townhouse duplex neighbor, Andrea. I used Laurie Smith fabric & vintage lace.  This was the same fabric I used for my DIY curtains in my last living room.  

This one is sorta up-for-grabs. I don’t know what’s going on, I created this for a special friend but haven’t really heard from her in a while. She still hasn’t received but we’ll see, anyways, it was made from more Laurie Smith material, vintage buttons & lace, and Hobby Lobby pomes. 

The story behind all this great Laurie Smith material is great because I scored it for SO CHEAP. I believe $1.99 per yard and it’s really great when sewing because it’s stiff and easy to hem and iron.  Hancock Fabrics no longer carries her stuff but I just love the colors & patterns she works with. 

Hope your Monday isn’t too dreadful, it’s around forty degrees with insane winds so I am sticking to the warm indoors. 

((peace out))
