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!
