Four Christmas Stockings

Here they are!  All four stockings are done and hanging (as seen here) in their new home.  I LOVE these stockings.  Let me repeat, I LOVE THESE STOCKINGS!!!

A friend contacted me after I posted the blog about the second tree skirt I made, asking me to make four Christmas stockings for her family.  (Can you tell from the color schemes that other than my friend there are three boys in the house?)  She gave me free reign to make whatever designs and use whatever fabrics I wanted to.  Initially this caused a wee bit of a problem because I seriously have about a thousand ideas floating around in my head for quilts or designs I want to try.  After I did some mental editing and surveyed the fabrics I already had in my stash I came up with these four stockings.  I didn’t use any patterns and I used my son’s Christmas stocking as the basis for the size of the four.

I got to try out my fancy new sewing machine’s double overlocking stitch, which I used on all of the edges and seams.  

I’m totally up for making many, many more of these.  Please let me know if you want to order some for next Christmas!

Here they are, individually, for you to admire.  So, which one is your favorite?

I’m in the middle of a four Christmas stocking order and thought I’d post pics from the first two I’ve got finished.  I looooooove them!  I’ll write a full blog post after I’m done with all four.
