A little Christmas...

I ran into a little Christmas dilemma this year. You see, last year I only had one child! These were our stockings.
(i took this photo because a certain Elf was hanging out on the mantle).

This year I have two kids. So I went back to Pottery Barn to see if I could order another stocking for Evan. No deal. They discontinued them!! ack. Well, being crafty I figured it was time to make my own.



I used this pattern and I highly recommend it. It was super easy.


The fabrics are from the Blitzen line by Basic Grey for Moda which I picked up at my LQS.


And I hand embroidered the cuffs by transferring our names printed from the computer.


I'm so happy with how they turned out. Take that Pottery Barn! haha!

Oh, and if you are still with me and have a moment, I would love if you could vote for my do.Good Stitches group. Rachel, the creator of do. Good Stitches has gathered together one finished quilt from each bee circle and the one with most votes will win.   This sailboat quilt is the one we chose to submit, and in my opinion, it is the best! :)  If you have a second, head here and throw us a vote? Thanks!

Great!! That Blitzen line is adorable and the hand embroidery looks fabulous. I will check out the tutorial because I told my husband I'd make stocking for our now three boys. Haven't quite gotten on that yet . . . .

I love the stockings... I keep thinking that I should make new ones. Everyone is adult age now, but they still get them filled!

They look fab! Love that Blitzen line, and you were very sensible with the embroidery of the names, because 30 years on ours say 'Mummy', 'Daddy' and 'Katy' lol It's been a year or two since I called them that ;o)

Becky, these are GORGEOUS! I wanted to get us a set of Pottery Barn stockings but could not bring myself to pay almost $100 for four. I think I like these better!
