Stockings....

It is that time again...time for Christmas sewing!

Last year, a very dear friend of mine was going through an extremely difficult time in her life.  She asked me if I would be interested in making Christmas stockings for her and her 4 girls...well...OF COURSE!!

I love to sew and especially love to sew for others, so I jumped all over this.  She gave me a color scheme and gave me full reign of the project. 

Here is how the stockings ended up...

I made each of them a little different, but used the same fabrics throughout.  The black is an awesome thick corduroy and the red is a soft wale corduroy.  I matched those two up with a french toile in cream and black.
I love how they turned out.  Oh, and the cuffs are monogrammed in coordinating colors all in the same font...Whimsey...one of my favorites!

Thanks for stopping by, and Merry Christmas!!
