Mini asked me to make stockings this year since he was tired of the “boring red ones” so I told him to go to my stash and choose the fabric. He chose some naughty or nice flannel I got last year after Christmas for 50 cents a yard. So, I sat down with him and we traced an old stocking on a sheet of laminated paper (an old wall map I got from Fishnet, 10 for a dime!!). I showed him how to extend the pattern enough to sew it properly and cut out the bases of the stockings.
Now, we needed cuffs…. Back to the stash we went.
The stockings cut and laid out to make sure everything looks good and it all fits together.
The boys (Cowboy and Mini) will have green cuffs and I will have red. They look great and I can’t wait to see them filled next week!
