Every year I spend a lot of time hunting down the different components for the Tattered Vintage Lace Stocking Hangers (Ornaments) I offer up at Christmas. I just love making them and I'm always so happy to put the trims and laces to good use...
They are a lot easier to find than real VINTAGE FELT.
This year I've cut out 100 separate wool felt pieces for the petite Stocking Hanger Ornaments.
(That's the boring part!)
That is fifty more than I cut out last year...ran out of the wonderful old felt and the stuff you can find readily available today (from Michael's, Hobby Lobby, Hancocks, etc.) is crummy. Argh!
They only offer Poly Felt and it pales in comparison to the vintage Wool Felt offered up until about the mid 1970's. You can find new Wool Felt...but goodness...it's so costly!
Christmas is just around the corner...can you believe it? Thanksgiving is so close to it this year that it makes the the holiday season feel scrunched and rushed... Sometimes it's a challenge starting Christmas during the Harvest time of the year... But, if I don't I never catch up.
Sew...sew...sew...off to work I go.
