My friend Laurie inspired me the other day when she mentioned that she was planning to make some holiday pillows using this fabric. At first glance it’s your typical cheesy snowman motif, but upon closer inspection it’s clear that these snowpeople are hipsters. I mean, come on, they’re wearing scarves and riding bikes! I have scaled my holiday decor waaaay back in recent years, but the hipster snowman fabric inspired me to see what else is out there.
Unruly Reindeer, Christmas Staching Snowmen, Yule Critters
Zoom Zoom, Retro Ornaments, Canopy Stripe
Play Dot, Deck the Halls, Tree Trimmers
Whether your style is modern classic or campy kitsch, take a look around and see if you can’t find something that suits your fancy. My favorite spots to look for fabric online are Etsy, Fabric.com, Joann’s, and Tonic Living. And what to do with it? You could display it in an embroidery hoop or stapled over a canvas, make a cover to slip over any toss pillow you already have, make a table runner or placemats, or even use it to wrap up a couple of special gifts. The possibilities are limited only by your imagination.
Full disclosure: I probably will not do much holiday crafting this year. Honestly, I’m debating even getting a tree-it seems like a recipe for disaster with a toddler who’s into everything, but I haven’t written it off entirely yet. Thoughts?
