old stockings get the boot

A "little" Sunday project to fuel my holiday spirit. Made using Sew4Home's Citrus Holiday Elf Stocking pattern and instructions. These really are easy to make (if you don't count turning out the tip of the toe piece... ha!), just a little time consuming. I wanted something modern and funky in a nontraditional color palette. All fabric for this project was purchased at Sew, Mama, Sew!, home of a fabulous fabric selection and excellent customer service. (Honestly, they were so responsive to my emails when I had a question, it was amazing!)

A few slight adjustments to the pattern - I made the stocking bodies with home decor weight fabric and double stitched the seam so they'd be nice and sturdy, since we actually plan on using these stockings. As you can see by the bulges, they're already full! Also, I "Stitch-Witcheryed" the pom-poms on cause I wasn't about to sew all those little babies on by hand. I am still swooning over Anna Maria Horner's Innocent Crush collection and that beautiful Queen of Hearts pattern.

My inspiration for this color palette actually came from the sewn stocking gift card holders that I sold this holiday season. I loved the paper that I used for that project and wanted to translate it into my holiday decor.

Next on tap, a coordinating tree skirt! Wishing you and yours a very happy holiday season! Oh, and if you're wondering why we have four stockings... the dog and cat each get their own. Yup, I'm one of THOSE people! ;-)
