Christmas stockings

The sewing machine's been getting a bit of a run these past couple of weeks...


I've been making a couple of Christmas stockings for the kidlets

I was inspired by this...




...and this, from Crate and Barrel last year...or was it the year before?



So I thought I'd give it a go... with my version


I think they'll look cute hanging up along the mantle



I've hung this on a kitchen cupboard just to see how it looks. I think it'll be terrific with a few sprigs of rosemary and a nice gift in the top

I like it. Amazing what you can do with a painters drop cloth!

  4. So clever! They are very elegant - not like my tacky Kmart ones. Maybe I could whip some up for the boys - not that they'll appreciate them!
