I won't be hanging stockings for Christmas. I'll be hanging goodie bags made from scrap material........Okay, I may hang stockings too. For now, I'm working on bags. Caution, the imperfections are intentional. I love to beat things up a bit.
I used canvas cloth for these, and used the "Fabric Printing" method for the images. I only added one handle at the back for hanging.
I used some of my vintage Christmas images. The bags are about 8x10. Keeping it simple, I just stitched around the edges, and frayed it a bit. I wanted a worn, vintage look. The handles are the hemmed edges of the canvas cloth. I just cut a section, and stitched it to the bag.
This bag was copied in color. I didn't stitch this one, I used fusing tape.
I also added a pattern to the back. It's a copy of vintage wrapping paper. I dunked the bag in watered down coffee to get the aged look.
Actually, they've all been dunked. I just left "The First Noel" bag in the coffee longer than the others.
You can stuff them with goodies, a floral arrangement, etc.................
I have soooooo many variations to this, and other projects to share. See ya soon.
