Well, I didn’t get these made in time for this Christmas, but at least they will be ready for next year! How cute are these stockings! I got as far as cutting out the patterns, sewing the main stocking pieces together, and then I got to the part in the directions for creating/sewing the cuff. Man, am I a beginner sewer or what! I was trying to figure out what terms like “bias,” and “sewing in the ditch” meant, and I was completely lost. So, I took all my materials home with me for Christmas and luckily my seamstress mother was able to
help me, finish the stockings for me, while I watched and learned. And for Christmas, she gave me some really nice Gingher sewing scissors! One of these days I will complete a sewing project on my own, but for now I’m just happy with my made-with-help Christmas stockings!
Check them out! (please ignore the missing 3rd button on the right stocking. Apparently, I can’t count, so I’m 1 button short!)
