Stockings Made From French Linens, Mangle Cloth, and Antique European Grain Sacks and a Giveaway




Hello!
I am teaming up with Wintersteen Farms today for another Christmas Giveaway.....
You will have the opportunity to win a Wintersteen Farms Wreath, two large Christmas stockings, and
Giveaway information will be at the bottom of the post.
First I wanted to share a few pictures of some Christmas stockings I recently made and added to my shop.....

I made the stockings from a variety of antique linens.


I love the red stripe on this mangle cloth.
I also really like the contrast between the mangle cloth and the french linen.



My mom is here at the moment and hemmed all of my stockings for me.
Thanks Mom.

I made stockings from a variety of red striped Antique European Grain Sacks.
I like how these four mismatched stockings look together.


I made more petite stockings.....


I recently found some duvets made from antique french textiles.
I was so excited to find this red plaid material....



I will only be able to provide these little stockings for a limited time.
They are easy to make however they do require a lot of time to make.
I will show you a few other ways to use these in the near future....


Thank you to Jeff and Kelly Kansala of Wintersteen Farms you will get a chance to win a Wintersteen Farms wreath today along with two large stockings and a set of 12 petite stockings from my shop.


Wintersteen Farms offers Fresh Traditional Christmas Wreaths that will fill your home with the scents of the mountain air....



Their 24" wreaths are abundant with noble, cedar incense, blue berried juniper and ponderosa pine cones.....


Wintersteen Farms is a 36 acre noble and douglas fir tree farm.
The wreaths are hand crafted from start to finish.
Each Wreath is placed in their signature brown box after being packaged in a crystal clear bag, wrapped with tissue paper and tied off with a raffia ribbon.

Love it! Would love it for my first grown up apartment, yeah finally no more studios!!! Thanks you so much for this fun giveaway!!!!:)

Karen said...

I bought one of your little grain sack stockings and hung it from a vase that I have small fir tree in. It links like something out of Jeanne D'arc Living magazine. It is so well made and the perfect size. I wish I could have bought one of the big ones I liked but alas, it was also admired by another lady! And your tag was so "dreamy white" that I left it on the stocking! Great job and I hope I can win this giveaway! Karen in Carolina.

Hopeful Homemaker said...

I'd hang the wreath in my guest room for our Christmas company to enjoy. The stockings are lovely too.
