diy christmas stockings

“Will you make our stockings?” they said. “In your crafty little expertise way??” they said.

“I’d LOVE to make your stockings!” I said.

Lesson learned: stockings are tricky little buggers. Especially when you decide to hand stitch felt appliques. And when you use burlap. Burlap is like the devil of all fabrics. AND when you buy cute white pom garland, thinking it’ll be easy-peasy to sew on.

All that aside, no matter how much angry muttering I did under my breath, and how many alterations my friend, Katie, and I had to make to fix our mistakes, these stockings kinda turned out really stinkin’ cute. πŸ™‚ Side note: I couldn’t have done them without you, Katie!! Thank you thank you!

Sean & Isaac, MERRY CHRISTMAS and consider yourselves lucky to have possibly the only stockings I will ever make. πŸ™‚ We love you!

  1. Shanna, I just love your stockings. You are so talented. I can’t wait until you and Dave get home. But, I guess I will have to.
