I had a good size stack of Christmas themed fabric, so for the last few weeks, I’ve been sewing up reusable, fabric gift sacks, to wrap future Christmas gifts in.
I used only fabric and trim I already had.
They are assorted sizes, since some of my fabric was scraps, I let the fabric decide what size each bag should big,
I think there are 27 finished bags, from small to extra large.
When I put gifts in them, I will tie them shut with ribbon or twine.
Tuesday morning, this is what our breakfast nook and..........
Living room looked like.
I started with these older Waverly Vintage rose tablecloths.
And by Wednesday evening, the rooms like this..........
I used the Vintage Rose to make curtains, a short table runner and 2 bench covers.
The new prints on the wall were free printables found via Pinterest.
The dining room got a new curtain, sewn with a huge length of sheer fabric. (Most of my fabric stash was gifted to me, either from my mom, from some friends and some from my Dad’s yardsale purchases. I’m guessing this sheer fabric was in a fabric lot my Dad bought)
It was kind of pain to sew with but it made such a full curtain that it is fairly private even though the fabric is sheer.
In the living Room, the big white tree was packed away. The heavy curtains were swapped out for the muslin ones that were hanging in the dining room.
I added a table top white tree with winter themed ornaments
We still have wrapped presents, because for several reasons, our big family Christmas will be here this weekend.
While I was swapping things around, I put these 2 pictures that my mother embroidered about 60 years ago in the Living room. The deer and horses are all satin stitch with embroidery floss and just beautiful.
Little Ducky is just fine. He’s grown a little but not much so I’m guessing he may be a small dog even when full grown.
He is very fond of his toys and amazes us that he already plays fetch with that big taggie ball.
My father in law thinks we should of named him “two socks”
