I know, I know. Christmas is over.....but I wanted to share what I have been (and still am) working on lately. My sister-in-law made LM a cute Snowman stocking out of felt a few years ago for Christmas. (pictured above, right) I thought it would be fun to make some more so that all 4 of us could have matching stockings. However, time got away from me and I only completed 1 stocking. (above, left)
Oh well, it gives me a year to finish the other ones! ha ha. I hope it doesn't take that long!!!
Here's what I did: cut out stocking shapes & Christmas characters using my abundance of felt.
Stitch the characters onto the fronts of the stocking, filling them each with cotton to make them puff-out a little.
Stitch decorative felt on the top and toe of the stocking. Then line the inside with a different color felt, to give it more strength and for a cute effect. Then stitch it together all around the edges. Voila!
Oh, and I decided at the last minute to stitch a little secret pocket onto the back. I'm not sure what I'll use it for.....but I've got a year to think of something fun!
