LITTLE MAKES

With two new grandsons in the past three months, I realized that I needed to make two more stockings before the big day.  So.........avoiding everything on my design wall, I did just that.
I went to my go to stocking pattern by Imagine Gnats.  I made mine a bit smaller tho


After piecing the feathers for this baby's quilt, I had oodles of fabric left over so I made his stocking from that.


The little bug bias tape was perfect for the hang tab.  Nothing girlie about THIS stocking


and just look at this backing.  I found this on my travels and new it would come in handy for one of my axe wielding, plaid flannel wearing boys!  I wish I would have bought more. Why didn't I buy more ???

I did the same thing for the other baby's stocking.


These are all Art Gallery fabrics except for the backing.  It is a Dear Stella print


details : )


both of the stockings have polka dot lining----for the win


and as if on cue, it snowed.  May as well roll with the punches and use it for a photo op : )

Thanks for stopping by

Very apt prop for your photo shoot. :) The stockings are great. Not the teeniest bit girlie at all. They'll be a favourite for years.

'She' clicked her fingers and on cue it snows. The perfect stockings for little boys, they are adorable, Carla!

Adorable!!! My DIL asked for stockings for them and the children (5 total) for Christmas this year, so I've got a few of those coming up in my future too.

Those are both sooo cute. I love the backing fabric. The snow makes a perfect backdrop too.

They are both so cute! I love the little bug detail too :) It snowed here all day today but, alas, I had no Christmas sewing I needed to photograph!

Very cute. A first Christmas is a special event, and these stockings will be adored for years to come. I love the snow picture - I've never seen snow in real life.

Marie said...

Cute stockings. I need some of that owl fabric. I just got an owl mug, now I need to make a mug rug for it. I'll have to keep my eyes open for some.

Axe weilding and plaid flannel make me think of the lumberjack song!
I imagine that your house has one of the best displays of Christmas stockings of anyone in the neighbourhood, maybe even the whole province!

So fabulous. All my daughters-in-law said they had the stockings covered, so I don't get to make any! But it's fun to see your renditions. I love all your fabric choices--they'll be loved forever!

Love the look of your stockings. Especially the animals peeking out here and there. I can hardly believe that with all the sewing I've done over the years I haven't made my own kids stockings and now they're all grown up. Maybe this year.

Donna Stewart said...

Oh super cute! Will have to get pattern for next year!

Janine said...
