I thought I would just hurry up and post pictures of the personalized Christmas stockings I made for the kiddies in my family last Christmas. It was something my mother did for me and my cousins when we were kids, so I thought I would carry on the tradition.
I found this wonderful tutorial on Cluck Cluck Sew, which was very easy to follow.
(Again please excuse the amateur pics, as I did not know then that they would end up in a blog!)
I used green for boys and red for girls. I would have preferred a darker pine green, but I thought I use up some of my stash before our big move.
This was a great opportunity to try out different patchwork blocks.
I just love how the penguins peek from the edges. I was not equally fortunate with the snowman heads, though. Live and learn.
Though it is not shown here, I stitched the individual names on all the stockings. I hope they will be used for years to come.
