Christmas Fabric Friday

11 comments
Thanks to you gals who responded to my questions about what to make for the Christmas season this year. Read the comments from readers of my last post. They are funny, and some good ideas. I love you guys.

I'm such a fan of Anna Griffin's fabric. Her Christmas fabric is always beautiful. Well all her fabric is amazing. I have a few pieces from the Anna Griffin Isabelle line to show today. I think this is last year's line. Her new line is called Twinkle Bright, equally lovely.
I really love the balls hanging on the tree. They look like crochet or hex signs. I always think black is a classic Christmas color - the color of night.
This is perhaps my favorite from the Isabelle line. It is very vintage with the hanging bells and the trees with candles. I really love it. And the border repeats.
The lettering is very 50's and it is all set so perfect, kind of like the front of a vintage Christmas card.
After complaining about stuffing I have to show you 2 ornaments I acquired through etsy. We won't rehearse my stuffing issue. But if someone else stuffs, I'm perfectly happy to use them.

So what do I make with my Christmas fabric? I haven't decided, but again, I love all the suggestions. And who knows? This fabric just might sit on my shelf until next Christmas. I hope not but fabric this lovely never goes out of style.

What great fabric. I love the dresses. so cute! I was stuffing last night and was thinking of you. Why does everything I stuff turn out bunchy and lumpy? Maybe it's the type of stuffing I use, hmm.

It's beginning to look alot like Christmas... got ya singing didn't I? They're beautiful. That black with all the red ornaments is so striking! I'm feeling inspired. My goal is to have a mostly handmade Christmas this year... my wallet would greatly appreciate it that way :)

Charming fabric, but I would use those ornaments as pincushions. Hope these next few weeks aren't too crazy for you!

The good thing is - when you're ready you'll have the perfect fabric for the perfect project. I like all of them, and the ornaments are just too cute.

I love those dress ornaments... gingham with aprons! Too cute!
The fabric is so wonderfully vintage. I also have a weakness for Christmas colors on black. Thanks for the eye candy.

Love these fabrics, Nanette. I need to go back and read the answers to your last post because I am getting pretty stressed about Christmas gifts! Could not go to sleep the other night I was so worried about it!

Lovely fabrics, as always! I can;t even imagine what your sewing room is like. :) I somehow missed your last post and your aversion to stuffing. I won't tell you that I actually like to stuff things. Well, I just did, didn't I? I use wool fleece (that I bought almost 4 years ago and is still going strong!) and, by the time I've fluffed it up and crammed it into things, my hands are nice and soft from the lanolin. And, my floor is covered with all the dirt and grass that has come out of the fleece. That probably does nothing for you, huh?
