crafting: quilted christmas stockings




it feels like a christmas miracle to have these finished on time!

whilst feeling under the weather over the last few weekends i managed to get both stockings finished, and (despite some very rushed hand sewing on the front pieces) once i switched to machine sewing they both came together very quickly.



i traced my old stocking to make a pattern piece, and used scrap fabric for the cuff and linings. along with the charity shop red skirt fabric for the back and endless scraps for the front these are some pretty thrifty stockings!

now that they are hung up and filled with presents, i feel like our christmas corner is finally complete. hopefully they will be a part of our lives for years to come, and i can't wait to continue making projects like these in the new year :)
