Winter Games by Amanda Murphy

Hi everyone,

The Winter Olympics are just around the corner and so is the advent of some serious sewing entertainment!  I love watching the athletes compete (having no athletic ability myself) and figure skating is my favorite.  Since I designed a line called Winter Games for Contempo or Benartex in celebration of this year's Olympics, Brewer invited me back here to celebrate the advent of the games with all of you!

Faux Suede Fringe Stockings DIY

Since this is our first Christmas with our daughter Lola, I thought it would be fun to make some family stockings for the mantel to celebrate this extra special holiday! I love the texture and look of faux suede, so we partnered with EverSewn to incorporate that in some way and a layered fringe look felt like the perfect route.
