Hi , and Hello , and a very merry Ho ho ho to you, gentle reader.
It’s “the Twelve days of Christmas goes up market and stylin’ ” , in a hanging garland of wonder! just LOOK at how beautiful it is!
Chrissy says: ” I have a huge stash of muslin, hemp and raffetta that I wanted to use
up. And the only thing I managed to make a dent in was the raffetta!
I cut out my sack pattern and sewed it on my nifty handy dandy sewing
machine. I cut up some Echo Park christmas paper I had left from last
year. Ok. Honestly. I got it last year and never used it. Good
“My glittery sparkly numbers are Amercan Crafts Thickers. The red
rhinestones are from my awesomely awesome saucy red mixed media color
kit. I used a hefty amount of twine for accenting. I stuffed my sacks with the
raffetta and let some of it peek out the tops of some of the bags.”
(A note from Chrissy: ***You could fill each bag with treats. My kids have been fighting
non-stop.. so they get raffetta! ;) ”
You can find a simple pattern for making the sacks here.
am loving this project idea… and I think lollies would be fabulous in the bags… maybe a different recipient could get a bag on each countdown day? Or maybe you could get one each day yourself??
wishing you much crafty gift making and many organisational skillz this beautiful December! Until next time.
