Rag Christmas Stocking

IMG_0248Ok I know for a change I am not having my knitting needles in my hands….smile you think.  I thought I will show you all something different. I am really big into knitting you all know that if you have followed my blog. IMG_0245

But I do work in a Quilt and Yarn Store…so that means we really work with fabric and yarn all the time and I truly love being surrounded with all this Yarn and Fabric and all our customers. If I can help them and get a smile back from them that is what keeps me smiling.

So decided to sew a Rag Christmas Stocking …no pattern just sew as you go…lots of fun then cut, cut and more cut. Wash and voila all done to the point where I made a second one…just loving them. My hubby was pretty impressed if I may so

the top stocking has been felted already the bottom one I still need to cut all the edges too and put in wash machine to felt the edges too.

 Ich liebe es wirklich mit all der Wolle  und Stoffen  Täglich umramt zu sein und alle unsere Kunden helfen zu dürfen. Wenn ich ihnen helfen kann und da auch ab und zu ein Lächeln zurück zu mir kommt das macht mich Happy.

So ohne Muster ging es einfach loss. Stoff schneiden, dann Naehen und nochmals alles schneiden dann ab in die Waschmaschiene zum filtzen…und voila die Weihnachts Finken geffallen mir recht gut. Sogar mein Mann war imponiert das ich die so schnell hergezaubert hatte….wennn ich das sagen darf.IMG_0244

 Nice way to use up some of your seed beads.  Just mix and match and have fun with the colors. Here are some pictures of the diagram to make one link for this Bracelet.

  The links are all interwoven, only the last on is a back and forth flat Peyote stitch over three rows.  Use any clasp method you like to finish it off.  Or sew on a snap clasp form your sew kit.  Here are some of the links joined together.

Christmas Season is starting to be around Us.

  My Husband and I had two hours to ourselves this past weekend.  Sooo……. we went for a drive and came across this great place that we have in our area to see the wonderful site of Christmas display.   Every Year this is one of my favourite visits.   I remember before we were married we went together to Niagara on the Lake, short drive from the Niagara Falls in Ontario.   I always remember the beauty of all the handmade items some stores displayed in their windows.  Believe it or not I even visited Santa……my wish came true that year. Smile……..

 It is wonderful to see, and of course to shop for the small or big budget items you have liked to get for your special Christmas tree for your home:  Santa’s in all kinds of styles, Angels, Birds, Mice, Christmas Balls, Bells, Stars, and Trees.   Red or Yellow Dogwood Branches for your fresh ornaments you have welcoming your Guest and Friends by the Front Door.

 So many choices…and the nice time you have just looking at it and having fun sharing it together.
