I finished the first of the Christmas Stockings. This one is the first of two that needs to be mailed. I'm a bit leery about that part. Problem solving ways to make sure they arrive at their destinations.
Anyway, here is the first one. I hope he likes it 🙂
I did some things a bit differently than I ever have before, which I will add here so I can remember in the future.
📌I made a braided leather strand for the hanging loop.
📌I added a homemade pocket on the back.
📌I stitched the holiday items (mini-stockings & Christmas tree) right on the stocking body.
📌I used a Giant doily for the snowflake - wrapping it around to the other side too. It was the only one (size) I could find. I also threaded leather through it and added a 'sun' button.
📌I did not add any batting (Warm & Natural or regular) behind the heal & toes or individual items.
This one hold lots of "music" for the music he and his gal make together. Some of the fabrics, used on her stocking back in 1995!
There are buttons as gifts, to represent nature and to add some texture and fun.
I have to add that I just love the mini-leather loops on the mini-stockings!
May you accomplish things that you want to, need to, decide to
May you accomplish things on time, within no time frame, slow or quick
May you accomplish things and keep going
