The Stocking(s) Were Hung by the Chimney with Care

Hmm..wait, I don't HAVE a Chimney! :-)

However, I did make this super cool stocking to hang somewhere! My friend assisted me in making it. She showed me a technique where we were quilting it as we sewed it.

The fabrics were ones I'd originally chosen to be part of a quilt but I ended up using them for the stocking. I like that they are Christmas colors but not a Christmas print per se. What surprised me was how much fabric it took to make this! I'd say the better part of 6 fat quarters. Yes, there are leftovers but I used most of each of the squares. I may put my initial on it or something later. Will wait and see how this settles on me.

I would like to make each of the boys one with some personalization (maybe a fabric they like or a theme they like). But that ain't gonna happen this year! I was lucky to get one finished before the holiday actually hit. Next year I'll plan ahead.

If I don't post before then, I hope everyone has a happy holiday season. Be careful on the roads!

I have made stockings & wall hangings using my grandfather's neckties.
