Stockings! I have been wicked busy sewing for Christmas- thus, very little blogging but lots of progress on projects and presents. This means, on the off chance that someone who will receive one of these gifts is reading (and my readership is pretty low, but a fair majority are family!) I have to wait to show pictures until after the gifting days- so check back for some wonderful finishes after Dec 25!

As for the pics I can show though, I finished two stockings, one for me and one for my two year old son. I made mine first because I had never made one before and had to make up the pattern. I am glad I did, because it is about half the size his ended up being! Way too small for someone with lots of stuff in a stocking!

I vaguely used the free All the Trimmings Stocking pattern available from Denyse Schmidt Quilts, but mostly just for the construction guidelines. I don't have a printer, so I just eyeballed my pattern. I love how they came out! For mine, I used the Heirloom fat eights I won from Stitching by Starlight. Thanks again, Angie!

Hopefully they will hold up well to stuffing on Christmas Eve!

Happy holidays to everyone reading this, and I hope your sewing and crafting is well received, as gifts or in your own home!


  1. I love them!

    Santa has always piled stuff up around our stockings when it doesn't fit in...and we have stretchy knit ones that hold quite a bit. :-)

  2. Cute stockings! I really like the way you quilted them. Merry Christmas, Amorette!

  3. Very cute stockings! He will love his for years and years!
