Done, Done, DONE!!!

My happy dance is a conga. *Happy Conga!!!* I finished 6 Christmas stockings. And it's not December 24th!!!
 I tried to modify some store bought stockings last year. It did NOT work out. They were cheap, and I didn't have a sewing machine yet, so I did everything by hand. I finished 3 out of 4. Guess which one did not get finished? Mine. :o( So with my new found love of sewing/quilting, and my old Craft Monster to cheer me through, I made 6 this year. Four for my immediate family, and one each for my mom and brother. There's a few things I'm not super happy with, like the cuff is too small...the font is too small, and the embellishments got caught up on the seam. But they're finished. And I made them. :o) I used Cluck Cluck Sew's tutorial on Purple Panda Quilts and random Christmas fabric from JoAnn (that was deliciously on sale). It's super easy! Now that I've tried them this way, I may try the lined version next time.
Now to find gifts to fill them with!!!

P.S. Sorry, I don't know how to flip the pictures when I'm taking them straight from my camera. Stretch out your neck muscles and turn your head to the side. I'm sure you need to de-stress anyway. :o)


  1. Your stockings are beautiful! I'm so impressed I'm still trying to finish mine!

  2. Thank you Melanie!! Congrats, you're my first comment ever! :o)
