What a terrific idea these felt Christmas Stockings are. Everything that you need is included in the kit and all pieces of felt are printed with the pattern to embroider on or sequin over. I had so much fun doing the first one, that I am well on the way with my second.
My second stocking is for Poppy and I am hoping this will be finished by Christmas.
|First Stocking.......This one's for me!!|
Each night while the family are watching TV, I am sitting cutting, threading sequins and embroidering away, stuffing away where necessary as my stocking takes shape. There are always little add on's, like kittens, teddy bears or toys to bring it to life. This one even has lights to be added to illuminate the stocking.
|Plenty of surprises in the bag|
Sure each stocking takes a time, but little by little it builds up into a 3 dimensional story and will be a family heirloom for future generations. I am looking around for more designs for the other members of the family and I think I will be busy for the next few months or even years!!
