Ever since Penny's first Christmas (2012), I've had the idea to make our own Christmas stockings. I'm a very novice seamstress, at best, but I felt like this wasn't beyond my ability. So after a little bit of pinterest / etsy inspiration, a felt stocking tutorial, a trip to the craft store and .. ahem .. 2 years of procrastinating.. I got them done!
So here's a photographical journey of how I made my stockings (I'm going to call it that instead of a tutorial, because I am in no position to be giving anyone instructions on how to sew!).
Crafting these cuties definitely started my Christmas mood! Normally I had my Christmas pandora station running on my laptop while sewing away, but I learned that Idina Menzel (as in, Elsa) has a holiday album out this season so I jumped on that one!
The album list includes:
- Do You Hear What I Hear
- The Christmas Song
- Baby It’s Cold Outside (Duet with Michael Buble)
- Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas
- All I Want For Christmas
- What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve?
- December Prayer
- When You Wish Upon A Star (my favorite)
- Silent Night
- Holly Jolly Christmas
- White Christmas
- Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow (Bonus Tracks on Target Exclusive with Michael Buble!)
This week I will be pulling out all of our Christmas decorations, but here is our mantel in the holiday mood!
Have you handmade any decorations in your house?
Tell me about them!
