Handmade Christmas Stockings

Last month I caught the craftiness bug, and was inspired to make Christmas stockings. Perhaps it was a means to distract me from my grad work, but I found it fun and therapeutic. Armed only with a needle and thread, however, I lacked some serious resources. But thanks to the internet and social media sites like Facebook and YouTube, I borrowed a sewing machine, taught myself how to thread it (it had been years since I last did!), and searched images of other people’s handiwork – saving my favorites for inspiration. Five separate shopping visits to craft stores and I was ready to start cutting!

Sans pattern, I drew some out and created as I went. Halfway into the project I decided to line the stockings, one challenge well worth the effort. I wanted to make it the cleanest and prettiest stocking yet. So, take a look for yourself – I’m really happy with how they turned out. And I can only hope that Adam and Stacey will enjoy them for many many Christmases to come!
