Tartan and Pine

Since I had the scrap fabric box out to make my new stockings I figured it was about time to do something with the pretty tartan fabric that my Grandma gave me.

Tartan fabric + a bag of Balsam Fir goodness = an amazing smelling door-hanging-thing.






I just added gold ribbon as the hanger for a little extra sparkle and ta-da




I was making them as stocking stuffers for my family, but since I like them so much they might just have to stay at my house.

Gotta love quick, easy sewing projects that bring joy every time I smell them.

Love that fabric. I could have a whole house done in tartans and plaids. When, oh when, are we going to be able to own 20 houses so we can decorate them in all of our favorite styles? ;)

Wow! great idea!! Our tree wasn't as fragrant this year so this would be perfect. I'll have to try it out-- thanks for the tip!

Mmm - I bet that smells yummy. Where can you buy the balsam fir? At a nursery/garden center or craft store?

LindsB said...

Laura, I think craft stores should have something like this. If not you can order it all over the internet. I actually got mine in Maine, or I should say my Grandma got it in Maine- she gave it to me :)
