Jump Start on the Holidays.......

I say this ever year and every year I wail till the weeks before Christmas to start my holiday shopping I hope to be different this year! But that remains to be seen..........

Oh well I have started my holiday sewing and I made this fun Stocking for Caramelo's Euro Winter launch on ebay starting September 23rd.
Detail of the ruffle and ric rac.

Then I made up this bag using a fabric from Heather Bailey's new pop garden line. I love how it looks with the chocolate brown cord, I also love the red and aqua together I wanted the red in the zig zag print to pop so I edged the middle stripe in a solid. Also I had to add a flower just for fun!

Here is it with out the flower.

I used the red for the interior as well!

Have a Happy evening! Meg

What a beautiful brown cord bag. I love how you centered the Pop Garden fabric, and made it pop with the red edging. It's sporty and fun and functional too. Love it!

Hi Meg!!! LOVE the stocking... I love the ones with the "curly" toes... :o)

That bag is GROOVY!!! For some reason I hear the Brady Bunch theme in my head (Definitely something MARCIA would carry!)... Love it paired with the brown cord!

I forgot to comment when I initially saw this. I think that stocking is so adorable. I really want to make Christmas stockings this year.... You've inspired me!
