Hello there! Just popping in to show you what I've been up to over here so far this holiday season. Making stockings, of course!
Last year I made some new stockings for my little family (3 sons, one husband, and one dog). Everyone had their requests of what they wanted their stocking to be. The husband wanted something non-girly with no flowers. Check. Boy 1 wanted something simple, and picked out the fabric for the front and back of his. (Robots, of course) Boy 2 picked out his fabric, red, gray, dogs, even a tiny bit of red plaid left over from his baby blanket. Check. Boy 3 wasn't picky yet, as wouldn't be born for a few more weeks (he is much pickier now, at almost one year old). Easy. Dog? Dogs. He seemed happy. My stocking is made from the scraps of one of my favorite quilts. Perfect for me.
After showing them on my blog, I made the stockings into a pattern, and have since seen so many fun stockings made by my friends and customers. In fact, just this weekend I had two friends come over for a stocking party.
We made 11 stockings in about a day, and they just couldn't have turned out better. Aren't they cute? The stockings, and my cute friends, of course. (Thanks girls!)
