Hello and Merry Christmas Season, everyone! I’m usually not a very Christmas-y crafter, meaning I like to make gifts at Christmas, but not things that are specifically red-and-green themed. This year I decided to change that and actually make some decorations, which is perfect because I also get to participate in the Holiday Sewing Tour hosted by Jamie of Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom. Her site is filled with all kinds of holiday-sewing-and-crafting-goodness right now, so if you’re a procrastinator (like me!) and haven’t started making any Christmas decorations, this is the series for you.
The really great news, is that Jamie is hosting a BIG GIANT SERGER GIVEAWAY to celebrate all this holiday sewing! Don’t miss your chance to enter HERE. The giveaway will close on December 20th, so don’t delay!
So… back to holiday sewing! Today I’m sharing the instructions for my hand-printed burlap stockings, which are a great project for you and your kids to do together. Abby and Stryder had a lot of fun printing paper (and everything else) while I stamped stockings, and I’m still finding little handprints in black paint around the kitchen. Good thing the paint washed off!
As you can see, the stockings currently hang by our chimney with care, awaiting little goodies and eager little hands. I hope you enjoy the project and get a chance to make something fun with your littles this season!
You’ll find some of my favorite things in this project: colored burlap, gold paint, leather loops, and hand-stamped designs. That’s a pretty good crafting trio, in my opinion!
OK, let’s get stared! To make your own Hand-Printed Burlap Stocking, you will need the following:
- Two pieces of burlap
- Acrylic or fabric paint
- Carrots and erasers
- Sewing machine and thread OR hand-sewing needle and embroidery thread
- Two pieces of faux fur
- Leather cord for the loop
I also encourage you to check out the rest of the Holiday Sewing Blog Tour by clicking the photo below. Don’t forget to enter the BIG GIANT SERGER GIVEAWAY, too! Jamie will announce the winner on December 21st. She’s also opening a Holiday Sewing link party that day, so be sure to enter your projects and browse the party for more inspiration.
Have a great day you guys, and I’ll see you back here in a couple of days!
