Last night at Singers' rehearsal, our musical director asked me if I'd make her 4 grandchildren a Christmas stocking each. Of course I said "Yes"! So today I set to and, first of all, made a cardboard template of my stocking pattern so I could draw around it rather than have to keep pinning the paper pattern on. It's quite appropriately made from some cardboard that was attached to a Christmas magazine I bought yesterday. Here's my template lying on top of the very appropriate fabric I chose for the back of the stockings.
My wee baskets of colour-sorted Christmas scraps all ready to be dug into.
The first stocking front is complete.
And the second front is complete.
I've got until our last rehearsal for the session on Thursday to finish them so I should have them done in plenty of time! :o)
For anyone out there with Scottish blood running through your veins, happy St Andrew's Day. I have to say, the Google logo is a bit strange this year. A lion blowing the down off a thistle? Weird!
