One way I create coziness in my home is with fabrics. I made this little bag for herbs from a fabric scrap.
I got a selection of fabrics out of my project closet. There are many ways you could add to your home by sewing up any of these fabrics. From left to right, I have a natural linen on the table, burlap, ticking, a French General reproduction of an antique French textile, red and black toile, red check, and another French General reproduction of a bird toile. All of these fabrics evoking the French Country style could add a lot to your cozy home.
Some of the ways I have used fabric has been to create tablerunners.
A white linen turns into the star of the tablescape with these shabby chic napkins.
A antique French petticoat makes a mantel scarf for a cozy fall scene.
And vintage table linens create a a much more interesting table top adding texture and pattern. Do you like the use of fabric to make your home cozy?
