Happy Tuesday, crafty friends! How are holiday preparations coming along at your house? I have barely scratched the surface of the pile of things I still need to do, and am definitely feeling the pressure. My parents arrive for their annual holiday visit tomorrow, and both kids will be done with classes by early next week….. so soon the house will be full and the festivities can begin. I just need to get my rear in gear before then.
Today I’m reaching back into my archives again to share a project that I made for the Tim Holtz Sizzix Chapter 3 release. This time, it’s a fabric project featuring one of the holiday bigz dies from the release called Reindeer.
Look at all the detail on that beautiful leaping reindeer! So hard to believe that this is a steel-edge die with all those intricate curves and thin lines. For this project, I pulled out some of my favorite flannel and vintage chenille fabrics and pom pom trim to make a Christmas stocking. The reindeer itself was die cut from sturdy wool felt, and added to the stocking using a hand-stitched blanket stitch.
I really love the simple silhouette look of the reindeer, so kept my embellishment to a minimum. Just a black seed bead eye and a twine bow tied with Idea-ology bells were all that were needed to bring the features to life.
I had such fun with my secret assignment of creating fabric projects for this release. Just another way of using some of your favorite supplies. My Finley pup will be celebrating his first Christmas with us this year, and the little guy definitely needs his own stocking. I think this should be it, don’t you?
