|Rudolf on the right was hung every year in my husbands classroom!! We've had|
him now for 38 years I think!!
|Our stockings this year with a few alterations!!!|
|Coopers stocking was finished but I added his name and|
Buddy the Elf on the Shelf!!
|Hayden got a brand new stocking, I will share that at the end.|
|Son Drew's stocking was made by my mom when he was|
born. It is a needlepoint, but too small. So this year I
enlarged it be adding it to some wool plaid. Santa can
finally get things to fit inside!!!
|Grand-daughter Alex's stocking needs some decorations, so|
I will keep it out when everything gets put away and I will
share with you what I end up doing!!
|Daughter-in-law Jessica's stocking was a store bought one, but|
cute as can be. I hand embroidered her name this year!!
|Son Josh's stocking was hand knit by my aunt when he was|
born. Like Drew's, it was small and hard to get things into.
So I enlarged it by sewing it onto some quilted white
fabric!!! Love it, and Santa does too!!!
|Our stockings that were made 38 years ago. They didn't|
need any alterations, thank goodness!!!
So Haydens quilted stocking was made from Christmas 2" strips I've had for years and years. I simply sewed two sets and put them together in a braided manner. Then layered it, did a simple meanger/stipple and then did some free motion scribble quilting for her name. Sewed a back to it and also made a lining out of a Wallace Tartan plaid fabric I had. I grew up as a Wallace, so it was fun to bring the family name into the stocking.
Here's the process!!!
Happy Quilting and Keep those scissors sharp!!!
If you are interested, take a peek at my other blog to see what I am busy with!!! No time for quilting!!! Martha :^)
