When the kids were really little I made them some little stockings for Christmas. The trouble with them is that they were really small and they worked while they were babies. Santa doesn’t put a lot in their stockings and tends to be socks and a few other little things. Now they are bigger though and so are their socks. New stockings for both of them were needed.
When I made their first ones they were really basic and this time round I wanted them to be patchwork and quilted so I set myself the task of doing just that. I used fabric from their old stockings and added extra and set sewing.
Deciding on a size was difficult and I just hope that they will stand the test of time so I don’t have to make new ones again in the future!
Here they are, one side is patchwork and quilted:
And the other is plain and have their initials on it.
Hope you like their stockings? The kids do!
Have a good Christmas.
