I couldn't talk about this one before Christmas but I can now!
I made yet another Christmas stocking to join the other 2 I did last year for my nephew and his wife. They had a beautiful baby girl and I got to make her a stocking to match her mama and papa's.
I got to work with my favorite blue and gold color combination (NOT).
I used the pattern found here to make it.
I always put off making things that are not quilts.
They give me anxiety and I fret about how things will turn out.
I did the patchwork then laid out the stocking pattern to cut it out.
Here it is all cut out and ready to make.
I am really happy with how this turned out.
Although Katherine is a l-o-n-g name to fit on the front of a stocking!
I told them to name their next one a shorter name!! LOL
Here is her daddy's stocking
Her mama's stocking
And baby makes three!!
I'm linking up to Crazy Mom Quilts finish it up Friday.
I love your stockings! I did a couple string pieced stockings and yours are evey so much nicer!
Love those stockings and I DO love the blue and gold.
Love the colors and patterns!
So Michigan State all the way? :) Have you seen this commercial? Your post makes me think you will appreciate it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UPLnmUx-Lig
Turned out gorgeous!
Very very nice!
I totally get your anxiety about sewing things that are not quilts but you did a fantastic job!
All three stockings are gorgeous, but I am most impressed with how you managed to make Katherine's long name fit :-)
