Silent Night

I spotted this yard of fabric when I found my mom's Christmas dish pattern fabric.  She will make fabric square centerpieces for her table and dessert table with it.
I'd love to figure out a cool way to use it.
It would be cute to make a draw string sack and have a family gift for or from Jesus to use in the coming new year.  Like a movie or devotional or something to stir up family time together??
Then...the family could get the bible out and have a discussion time about the story of the 1st Christmas.  Anything from Luke Chapter 1 or 2 would be good.
Isn't it sweet!?
Drummer boy and all.

Here is the link to this awesome 50% off Debbie Mumm fabric sale.

I'm also quite the fan of the following patterns:
Home Fires Debbie Mumm NOEL Red
I love the words, stockings, candy canes.  Great overall pattern.
I admit that I over-use my JOY rubber stamp. ;o}

Roasting Marshmallows White Christmas
We love us some Polar Bears and Penguins around here.  Ya'll gotta see our displays we do outside.  This is all Nate's fault..he started this passion.
Gingerbread Men Benartex
We've never met a Gingerbread Man that we didn't love around here!lol  
I think I like simple gingerbread patterns most.
Wintery Days Snowman
This is sooooo cute!! 
I love Snowmen! 

Magic Reindeer & Bird
This would be awesome for lil sacks of Reindeer food (bird seed and glittery sugar) for all the neighbors.  What a cheap personal touch that the neighbors would appreciate you thought of them.

I love fabric.  I want a yard or 2 of each of these. 
and I can't even operate my sewing machine or the serger my mom and I bought together.  I see lessons in my near future.  I'm afraid of all the threading! and feet! and bobbins!  I'm intimidated.  I have to beg my momma to help with these lil projects.

Anyone got cute fabric ideas?

Happy Blue Monday at Smiling Sally's

  1. I love that you're planning to incorporate the real meaning of Christmas in yet another way.

    Happy Blue Monday, DeniseMarie!

  2. Oh, her fabrics are adorable, just adorable. Thanks for the link!

    Maybe you could make a stocking out of it, and stuff it with good deeds, or charity items?

  3. I love the idea of a gift from Jesus-more about the real reason for the season!

  4. Charming fabrics, Denise! Love your blog!


  5. Love all that fabric. I don't sew much, but I'm sure you will come up with something great to use this for. Can't wait to see what it is.

    Thanks for visiting me over at Pittypat paperie and leaving a nice comment.
