They're Finally Done!



This is what my house looked like for five days. My honey is sweet to put up with my project messes that plague our home from time to time. If I had my own craft room there would be no problem. All I would have to do is shut the door and Wha-la! No mess. So, here are the stockings in all their glory. My inspiration for the stockings came from these. Although, mine were not as adorned with pretties as the stockings online were but I thought the girl's stockings turned out great. I only hope my girls like them when they get older. I love the stocking my mother made for me. She still displays them every year. I made both stockings with my girls in mind even down to the very color of them. They may not find themselves teal and red or green and pink when they get older but in my mind those are the colors that I see them in. Do other mothers see their kids as colors? No, probably just as kids. I am so kookie sometimes.



Nora helped me with disposing the fabric scraps. To her, tons of fun.

All the fun colors of felt used.


Behold, the stockings.

Details made from love.

They were easier than I thought they would be. I would be more then willing to lend a hand to any who need it.

Those look great! I have been toying with the idea of making stocking, but I think I lack the patience and creativity. Oh, great dress for the Christmas party!

Marleen, Those are so cute. I am so immpressed with your talent with felt! Did you make them up or have a pattern? They will love them.

Marleen said...

I made up the pattern. I'm hoping to use the pattern on stockings for future children.
