Can you believe we are already in December?
It's high time I mentioned there is a (not-so) new pattern in my Etsy store for the very popular Christmas Stocking.
This stocking is the perfect size to hold a few treasures on Christmas morning. It has a hanging loop with button closure so you can loop it through a fireplace mantle bracket or door handle. The stocking is lined for extra strength.
These were such popular items when I sold them as part of my range. I still have customers asking me about them as their family has grown and they need another stocking for another wee bub.
There are so many ways you can personalise these. A linen version would be lovely with a cross stitched initial. Armed with some waste canvas and a few cross stitch motifs you could add snowflakes or other Christmassy details.
You could use up your favourite fabric scraps and do a patchwork cuff instead of the pictured gingham.
This would also be a fun project for children to practice their sewing skills on.
