Cozy Cabin Christmas Stockings...

I have always loved the idea of a cozy holiday in front of a fire at a sweet log cabin.  Family, hot cocoa, Christmas music... nothing says Christmas like that!
So of course, I had to make the Cozy Plaid Stocking collection to live out my fantasy via sewing machine and fabric!  :)
And of course, you have to have personalized stockings hanging by that fire...
So, here are a few up-close shots of several stockings.  There are plenty more in the shop under the Cozy Plaid Stockings collection.

I love this collection!  I hope you can feel that cozy cabin holiday calling your name, too!

Unique Christmas Stockings to BRIGHTEN Your day!

These stockings were so much fun to make!  I have never worked with bright, energetic colors quite like these.  Orange stockings!!??  Who would have thought?  Yes, they are untraditional.  Yes, they are super fun! 

The fabric patterns are a modern stocking look with all the hexagons you can handle.  What a statement these would make hanging in your home.  So, enjoy the Funky MOD Stocking collection, over in my Etsy shop, yardsandyards.  Happy decorating!

Handmade Christmas Stockings: Fun and Bright Stockings Collection

There really is something nostalgic and traditional about these handmade Christmas Stockings.  I still have the felt stocking made by my great-grandmother.  It is covered with various shaped sequins and beads, and I love that it links me to my past. 

I wanted others to enjoy that same feeling of having stockings for Christmas that are handmade with care and are meant to last for a LONG, LONG time. 

My latest collection of personalized Christmas stockings Etsy - style is called the Cool Stocking collection.  If you are looking for something a quirky, with a modern twist, then this collection is for you.

This collection is filled with fun, bright colors and playful patterns.  Even amidst all of the pinks and reds, there are some stockings for boys as well!  I love this set!

And remember, I always add embroidered name tags with each stocking as well.

2014 Aqua and Coral Collection: Custom Made Stockings for Christmas.

The kids are back in school.  The days are cooling down.  And the garden is inundating us with tomatoes, pears, squash, corn, potatoes, and my favorite.... peaches! 

So, I figured that means it is time to start the 2014 Stocking Parade.  My children and I have been hard at work to bring you the best custom made stockings!  Our handmade stockings are made using the very best materials.  They are super thick and plush, so they hang beautifully.  These are made to last through many memorable Christmas seasons, and those amazing Christmas mornings as well.

So, here is the first collection of personal Christmas stockings etsy - style!

If you are looking for a unique, cozy Christmas sock, then these are perfect for you.  I could decorate an entire holiday around this coral/aqua color scheme.  I love the soothing, home feel to it.  Feel free to check out the Etsy shop and browse around.  Enjoy!!

Come one, come all!  I have been busy sewing for months.... but I think it has been worth it.  Yards and Yards is filled with all sorts of Handmade Christmas Stockings for those of you who would rather not sew your own stocking for Christmas. 

It's kind of cool because I have grouped the stockings into coordinating stocking sets to make it easy for you to mix and match the ones that work best for you. 

So, head on over and check them out.  And as always... a picture is worth a thousand words so here are so personalized Christmas stockings to look over.  I just love the holidays!

Up and Coming: Moda Does it Again!

I was just thumbing... or clicking... around today and I found myself at the Moda website where I inevitably end up checking out their new fabrics.  Here are four that I really fell for that will be coming out in the next several months:
Salt Air:  Check out the fun, bright colors but they still have that soothing feel to them.  Love these!

Oh Deer:  Who doesn't love little woodland critters?  I just love the simple, amazing pattern that these fabrics have.  Love MoMo's designs!

Ladies Stitching Club: Oliver and S does it again!  I can't wait to find these beauties in person!  These would be so beautiful with some easy sewing projects!

And finally, in case you were ready for Christmas again...
Blitzen:  Brought to you by the amazing Basic Grey, these fabrics are sure to be pleasers.  Beautiful!  I could sew lots of stockings with these.

So there you go.  A few lines to look forward to and get you in the mood for sewing!
