I love southwestern designs. I love fancy Christmas stockings and this pattern combines both. Bead and fringe to your heart's content and it is simple and quick. Use some of those old blue jeans or chambray work shirts or make it really glitzy in home dec, velvets or velours.

I've always creating something from almost nothing. I don't remember not being involved in crafting, sewing or quilting since my late teens when I was a young bride.
