Christmas Stockings

I know I said I wouldn't be back but I wanted to share the Christmas stockings I made this year.  
My daughter's best friend had twin girls and this will be their first Christmas. 
 I made stockings for their mom and dad when they got married (my shower gift)
 and I bought enough fabric to make stockings for future kids. 
 I really loved doing this and did the same for a few other close friends and family.  
While stockings are not my favorite thing to make I have it down pretty well now! 
 Here are the ones I made for the mom and dad of the twins.

Here are the ones I made for the girls.

It was my first time making the one with the Santa faces and the pinwheels. 
 I LOVE these Santa faces.

These pinwheels are NOT for the faint of heart!
I really love how it turned out though.

Amy was kind enough to send photos of the girls with their stockings.  Here is little Brooke.

Cuteness overload right here.  

Here is little Audrey.  They both have red hair too.  

She looks like she is going to climb right inside!

I have to say that Amy writes some of the best thank you notes I have ever received.  
I am not sure anyone makes me feel so glad to sew for them as Amy does.  
She always lets me know how much she loves whatever I have made her throughout the years. 
 I love her like one of my own. 
 I wish they didn't live so far away.  I am hoping to get to see her 
(maybe the girls too)
 over the holiday as they are going to be in town.

I made one more stocking but can't show it just yet.  I am not sure it has been gifted yet.

Stay tuned.  I will be posting a few more times before the new year too.

The stockings are almost as cute as the twins... being a redhead and having a redheaded grand daughter I am very partial to other redheads!!
