Christmas Stockings

Because I know my family doesn't know about this blog, I'm posting this project now. I'm not worried they'll see it & the surprise will be spoiled. My brother & his family need Christmas stockings. I made my daughter's and my niece's stockings last year, and they were okay. With what I know now, I'd make them differently. It's okay. Sewing is definitely a learning experience.

They're not super-cutesy or traditional when it comes to style. They're all pretty outdoorsy & casual. Very comfortable.

Enter THIS post...
I'll have to post pics when I'm done, but they'll look similar to this one, minus the feathers, plus red ric-rac. My lining/cuff is even a similar print!

I'll also have to figure out how to un-bold and un-italicize this last bit. Ugh.

Oh. And, I think I have tendonitis, so typing + sewing w/ a wrist brace isn't too fun.

  1. Hi, Ginny. So nice to meet you! Thanks for your sweet comment on! It made me smile! :)

    So, I LOVE your stocking idea...what a great present! We live pretty casually, so I think that jean material is awesome! Wouldn't have thought of that.

    AND, I have to tell you, I LOVE your mod podge plates! So clever! I might be stopping by Goodwill this week to pick up a few cheap plates to get this look.

    Thanks for visiting our site; loved checking out yours too! :)
