I've always loved my family's magical stockings, especially how they are each different and have our names cross-stitched on them. I love how proudly they are displayed all month and how we all love our own stocking so much. I've been wanted to make our own family a nice set for quite awhile, but I wanted to do them all at once so all the fabric could coordinate.
(Here I was a month older than Lincoln at Christmastime)
Though I don't have all seven made (because we're having 5 kids, did you know?), I have baby #2's started and I atleast have the fat quarters set out for each upcoming stocking, and all the batting, backing, and trims cut and ready. I didn't realize coordination was so important to me until this project!
I tried to make Dad's look like a dress shirt cuff on top, and no polka dots!
Thanks Diana for showing me how to make yarn pom poms! Though I may trim these down a little smaller; they also turned out a little wild, like my wreath.
Lincoln loves to shake his stocking and let the jingle bells ring!
