So I made Christmas Stockings. And they’re adorable.

In a hasty moment last year while putting away Christmas decorations, I threw away the kids stockings. Just threw ’em right on out.  I decided I had never really liked them and I would just sew them some new ones.  Except I didn’t remember that hasty decision until a whole year later, when we unpacked the decorations last weekend.  “Where are the kids’ stockings?  Oh wait….oops.”
Wouldn’t you know that same day I saw an adorable pattern for Christmas Stockings on Prudent Baby.  Decided to give it a try, and I think these stockings are so stinkin’ cute.  I may or may not have texted a friend throughout the sewing process with pictures of my successes and captions like “I’m so proud of myself right now.”  That might have been mildy obnoxious of me.  Apologies.

I quilted diamond shapes in two of them, as seen on Prudent Baby, then I got all wacky and brave and quilted squares on the third one. I know.

(And for you frugal mamas like me, the best part is that these “custom made” stockings only cost me about $3 bucks each.  Christmas fabric at Hancock’s is 50% off right now, and it only takes 1/2 yard per stocking.)

    1. I really liked the Aerosphere Bubbles of comfort case for 15" Notebooks. They have plenty of great choices for any device. A lot of them are excellent gift ideas for the holidays!I appreciate the chance to win a case! Thanks!Lieutcrunch27 (at) gmail (dot) com

    2. Voy a decirte una cosa Daniel Molina,…..Gracias a los sindicatos y partidos politicos tienes algo tan bonito en Espa├â┬▒a que se llama Democracia y LIBERTAD, para poder expresarte y decir todo lo que manifiestas,sin ellos todavia tendriamos la boca amordazada por los de SIEMPRE,…….como por ejemplo el Alcalde de Salamanca que primero es el y luego el,contra ese, si que hay que luchar para que a Salamanca se la respete.Que venga el que quiera si biene a luchar por la libertad de Salamanca del CACIQUE Lanzabotes

    3. So├»┬╗┬┐ ein Quatsch, Karagounis der Mann des Spiels? Bl├â┬Âdsinn, du kennst dich vielleicht aus mit Fussball, analysiere lieber nichts mehr. Der beste Mann auf dem Feld war Piszczek, der die Aussenlinie rauf- und runterrannte und sowohl im eigenem Straffraum die B├â┬Ąlle abnahm als auch die B├â┬Ąlle im Gegnerh├â┬Ąlfte immer pr├â┬Ązise flankte. Nicht├»┬╗┬┐ um sonst will ihn Real haben. Das ist zur Zeit der offensivste Rechtsaussenverteidiger, den es gibt.
