I love stockings! My husband and I just moved into a new apartment and I thought to myself... "What would spice up our place and really give me a Holiday feel without getting all GREEN and RED?" Here is my answer. (His is coming, I only had time to make one today. :) Mine was the tester.)
I started with two fabrics. One of them, the yellowy pink floral, is from about 5 years ago. I feel great about using it because I have been hoarding it for way too long! I finally found the perfect project and it is inspiring me to work my way through my stash.
My husband drew me a pattern piece for the stocking. Mine was a little wonky, so I chose his piece instead. Thanks Cody!
Then I pieced together the two fabrics, the stocking is about 8 inches wide at the top. So I just cut 8 inch wide varying sizes of fabric.
My favorite part is the toe!
I quilted the front to some batting and lined it with a plain white fabric. I like the alternating colors and fabrics. They are kind of clashing/matching. I used a light cream ribbon vintage bias tape that I got in a sewing box last month for the finish on the top and the loop. It tied it all together, and I love the finished product.
Here it is hanging in my craft room on my bulletin board (which I made with a SUPER discount frame from Michael's, some Ikea cardboard from our furniture packaging and scrapbook paper. Sweet!) It totally steals the show! What do you think?
