2 More Stockings

Over the years, I have saved 100% cotton or denim fabrics from shirts, dresses, jeans, etc. These I put into bins by color, like reds/pinks, blues, etc. which makes it easy to find colors for crazy quilting. Here are a couple of crazy quilt/cross stitch finishes. Look for more stockings to come!

(The photo makes the fabric look a little bit raspberry but it is more of a rustic red).
