12 Christmas stockings

I finished some of the Christmas stockings I'd cut out and pinned last week. (Or maybe it was the week before!!) I decided to stop at the 12 I had done and will go back and do the other 10 I have ready to sew after I've done some other things. Anyway, here are the 12 I've finished.

As I was making these, I decided I HAD to listen to Christmas music. I know it's only October but I'm not bothered about that! LOL

Next time, I'll show you what I did with these - or most of them anyway! :oD

    1. Thanks, Jo. They'll only sell if I load them into my Etsy shop so I'm going to try and get that done today. :o)

  4. They are all lovely, as usual. What material do you use for the white cuff?

    1. Thanks, Alison. I use white cotton curtain lining for any whites I want in my patchworking. I wash it first to remove the finishing and, when that's done, it's a perfect match for quilting cottons.

    1. Thanks, Janet. I kept having to remind myself that it was only October and that there was still time to get these done ... but, when you're making things for Christmas, you need to start early or you're left sewing hems etc on Christmas Eve. Been there, done that! LOL

  7. Wow, they look terrific! I enjoy how there's a fabric design for everyone among them, young or old.

  8. Well done, you're so organized... that's quite a production line you've got going there. And yes, in my world too it's essential to listen to Christmas music when making Christmas things! Even if it is still only October :-)
    Happy weekend,
    xx

    1. Thanks, Gilly. The big danger of doing things in a production line is that, by the time you get to the end of them, you just want to sew something else because you're just a teeny bit tired of Christmas stockings! :oD

  9. Gosh Anne, that is an awful lot of sewing to do all at once, no wonder you needed to stop for a break. They all look great though, and I think that the idea of Christmas music to get you in the mood is a good one. xx

Thanks for taking the time to comment on my blethers. I really appreciate it. I do try to reply to everyone but sometimes life just gets in the way of that happening! :o)
