A Tale of 3 Stockings

24 Dec

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care...

 Tomorrow marks our third Christmas together but the first one where we actually have stockings hanging on our mantle. 🙂  I was stubborn and decided two years ago that sewing Christmas stockings was going to be a part of our family traditions so here they are.  With having a baby and moving last year I didn’t have time to make them.  (Although if I had realized how simple they would be I might have tried.) 🙂 

Brandon's Stocking

Amanda's Stocking

Eli's Stocking. I think it's the cutest.

Truly there is much joy in our home. We are so blessed.

Eli was so excited about his stocking he couldn't hide it!

Notes: I used Simplicity 4842 view A to make each of the stockings.  They are all 14″ which is plenty big enough.  I did not add any of the fancy trim that the pattern calls for as I like the look of simple stockings better.  The pattern was great to use and also includes instructions for 2 different tree skirts and sewing reusable gift bags.  Now I just can’t wait till Christmas!

    Love it! You can make miniature versions of these as ornaments for you tree or to attach to garland for decorations.

      I hadn’t thought about making a minature version that’s a good idea. Hmmm.
