I’ve been busy this past week making some stockings for a friend. She is actually a really talented artist, and she is putting her talent to use making me something. 😀 I am trading some Christmas stockings she picked out for her artistic expertise. (Will talk more about that another time. ;))
These stockings were a lot of fun to make. She picked out the pattern from Etsy. The pattern called for the names to be embroidered, but considering I don’t have an embroidery machine, that didn’t happen. Instead, I printed on fabric using these sheets I got from Amazon. Perfect solution, and to be honest, I think I might like it better than embroidered names. The ink is set in the fabric, so you can even wash it if needed. (although I probably wouldn’t anyway)
Here are the final stockings:
Also, if you don’t feel like buying a pattern, CreateKidsCouture is running a free tutorial and contest on their stocking pattern. I really love this stocking and it was also a lot of fun to make.
Happy stocking making…better get busy. Christmas is right around the corner!!
