LAST MINUTE LITTLE MAKES

We are fast approaching the big day and even though we have pared down this year, I still feel the pressure.  Two of the three hats are done. The hardest part about these hats is finding a big button!



My son's girlfriend may get hers still on the needles-- sticking out of her stocking  : )

I managed to make my daughter a stocking.  She really liked the quilt I made using these fabrics so she asked for hers to be from the scraps


the stocking is a variation of this tutorial


One more stocking to go and then on to filling all eleven of them!
Have a fabulous week end.

Love both the hats and the stocking! Thanks for the link to the tutorial! I might need to make one! My son may get his quilt with the binding half finished...at least its not cold enough here to need it!

The hats are great. Sometimes I think I would like live where it's cold enough to wear stylish winter hats. I am sure the novelty would wear off after a week though! Merry Christmas!

Yay for such a sweet scrappy stocking! Wishing you fun filling those eleven stockings.

Merry Christmas to you and your family!
