So, this looks like it might become a yearly tradition. Featuring some great stocking designer... last year it was my sister-in-law, this year it is my baby sister Megan. She's 24, so technically she's not a baby except she will always be "our baby" and she never ceases to amaze me with her talents. SO every year we draw names and she drew my brother & his 2 girls (ages 7 & 9) - this is what she came up with.
This is the front side, but wait I wanted a purple sock? ... No problem!
Just flip it over. This is the reverse. How cute is that?
I asked her where she got her template and she said she just free handed it, and used that pattern to make the other ones with. I love it. I will definitely be tracing this pattern.
Here's the reverse side with the second stocking. I love her colors and she said she just used scraps.
It's deceptively creative. I thought there is no way I would ever "quilt" tiny pieces together to make a stocking, but these are strips weaved over and under that she sewed on and left the edges raw.
And the reverse to the green stocking.
I love the detail.
And even the inside fabric is adorable. We have outgrown our stockings and need new ones for next year. Here I have a pretty cool project to follow, maybe if I start now I can finish all 6 by next Christmas... I love it. Thanks Megs for sharing your creative fun ideas.
