handmade christmas project # 5

todays project is all about making stockings. i made mine out of black felt that i traced with a simple patterned that i drew. i did a edge stitch around the edges and then i did some cross stitched monograms that i glued to the acctual stocking. my scanner didn´t want to work with me so i don´t have the cross stitch pattern right now, but i am sure that there are resources online for that.

i didn´t want to go crazy decorating the stockings so i kept it really simple. you can obviously do go crazy :)

here is the pattern for this cutie :)

i have loved this stocking idea for the last year!

and you can use granny squares...

a bunch of christmas stockings
