Family stockings

After Sofie was born last year I knew we I had to do something about our Christmas stocking situation.

We had stockings going in all directions from our mantel. There were my old one that I made when I were in fourth grade which had shrunk in the wash some ten years ago. My husband loved it as it kept it easy for him to fill it….

There were my husbands two that his mom insisted he had to have from his childhood and the one I made for him when we got married. He didn’t even remember the two his mom gave him….

And then there were the one I had made for Isabel when she was born. Hand embroidered by myself, I just never got happy with it. Isabel really didn’t like it either….

I didn’t want to buy any, but I needed it to be easy.

So out of felt, pompoms and rick rack came this….

Christmas trees and poinsettias

Cute stockings! Using ric-rac to make a Christmas tree shape is a great idea!
