stockings. That’s what I told those inanimate objects after a fight with the sewing machine this afternoon plus some pom pom trim and a little leopard velour. This, ladies and gentlemen, is as far as I’ve gotten with our stockings:
I know I mentioned before Christmas that I was going to get these done but no dice. The girls’ play kitchen made sure I didn’t start on our stockings until after Christmas. So, look for a whole tutorial on how I put these things together next November-ish.
I worked long and I worked hard on these things after I fell in love with these stockings from Ballard Designs:

And let me tell you, I now know and understand why they charge (what I used to think was a crazy) $39.99 per stocking. Making them from scratch is t to the e to the dious folks! I learned a lot of new things about sewing and embroidering though in the midst of it all so don’t worry, I’ll make sure it’s a little easier for you all!
They’ll be back later this year. Merry Christ…Happy New Year!
