stockings

I just finished what I think will be my last big sewing project of the year, but I am not making any promises.  I am longing to paint again, so that means it is time. 

But I have to say that I am really happy with how my stockings turned out.  I took much of my inspiration from this tutorial.  i can't wait for Santa to come and fill them up!



Each year as we add more stockings to our family, I thought it would be a nice addition to embroider the year on the back.

Just in case anyone's wondering what Lynlee is up to while I am working on these...

Ooooo, they're lovely. I've been meaning to make matching stockings for our family for about 3 years now. Maybe someday. I at least have to make one this year, for Eleanor. I'll definitely use the ribbon attaching technique you used, with the button. So cute!

I'm SOOOO going to break my "no crafting" policy and make these sometime in 2012. They are gorgeous! Thanks for the inspiration!

Oh......so it looks like Lynlee probably loves it when she sees the sewing machine come out because she gets to explore and she knows momma is distracted. Lovely stockings miss artistic.
