The Christmas decorations came out the other day. The tree was standing there naked for a few days when I lost all motivation. It is now done and looks great and the kids love it of course.
With the decorations came the stockings I made.
To make the stockings I took lining and batting of the stocking shape and made the front sort of by quilt as you go, placing on the pieces and the trim and sewing it together until I had a quilted stocking shape with lining on the other side. Then I took another two more pieces of fabric, one lining and one the back and sewed them to the front right sides together. I turned it the right way out and sewed around the edge to make it nice and flat. Then I bound the top raw edge.
And now all that is left is for these to be hung up on Christmas eve so Santa can visit us!
Seasons Greetings all xxxx
