.

And the stockings were hung by the chimney with care....

........just in time for Christmas!

It was close, but they're done!  

And I must say well worth the time. We now have personalized stockings that should last a lifetime of Christmases . I've even saved the extra fabric and patterns in a labeled box  just in case we need more in the future. 8 stockings, all in different patterns!  

Names were printed with our home printer and sewed around the edges in big stitch to hold them in place. I also did a button hole stitch around the toes and heel.

 

Tony, our Art Director made these stockings for his family out of Patrick Lose fabrics. A totally different idea, but personalized to their own taste like our family's stockings. Like quilts, they can be your own creation with your own fabric choices.  

 

Kind of a miniature quilt !

 

Here's hoping your Christmas is filled with special moments and plenty of great memories!
