Christmas Stockings

I have been using inferior Christmas stockings for the kids for too long.  This year, with all the lovely fabric I bought at Spotlight, I just had to make new stockings.  I drafted a pattern and this is what I came up with.

The stockings have Scarlett’s approval!  Tenneille is staying with my mum, so she will get to see hers tomorrow.  Jairah was excited, but then, it doesn’t take much for him to be happy, so I will take it he likes his too!  I used a blanket to line them with and to give them a bit more oomph, so they don’t sag too much when hung.
