My Tuesday afternoon's sewing saw me stitching all those 176 squares together in their stocking shapes and then pinning them to wadding and calico for backing.
This morning I got them all quilted together, the linings made, the backings put on and the linings inserted. After lunch, I hand-sewed the openings closed and top-stitched around the tops of the stockings. And here are the finished results:
After I'd finished the stockings, I was pondering on what to start next when I remembered I'd told Debbie I'd make the 4 holes in the capelet she had made to carry the belt. I also had the belt to make and the belt loop!
The holes were basically (big) bound buttonholes and I knew how to do that. I must admit, I was really pleased with how well they all turned out. This is one of the front ones:
And this is the belt loop and the 2 holes at the back of the capelet.
When Debbie tried it on, the capelet fitted her so much better than it did before so, hopefully, she'll get the wear out of it now. :o)
