I will be working on Christmas projects for the shop now, every waking moment. It is crunch time from now until December 3rd when we have A Vintage Christmas Open House at Vintage Living. So I will be posting all my different projects each week and sharing with you my Christmas handmade goodies. Today I am working on my stars and no Rose at BellaRosa isn't here... (sorry, Rose I couldn't resist) I have been making these for around 16 years now and they are one of my best sellers. They are made from vintage fabric, old metal garland, old lace and trims. Some of them I have put images on but usually they have a button in the center. They are filled with sawdust to give them that old feel.
I hope you enjoy my mess.
This is a finished star, they look good hung on a mirror, or off a cupboard knob or hung high...I usually hang 3 together off my high shelf above the mantle.
This one is all hand sewn but some I use glue.
I am on the kitchen table today while my grandson Jesse is napping.
