Christmas Stockings

While I wasn’t mopping up the kitchen or soaking my hands in dishwater I was working on these over the weekend! Last year when I made our tree skirt, my family suggested stockings. I wanted to make them, but had purchased enough fabric for the tree skirt only. Well, earlier this summer I was blessed, when the charming Kelly cleaned out her stash, and I knew that stockings were a must!

I love the maverick stars and this is my first project with them. I love the gentle reminder of Christs’ birth with the star – even Emmalie noted while I was sewing that they were like “Jesus’ star”. She’s such a smart girl :) I put everyone’s name on them, that way there are no squabbles year to year. And I had fun mixing up all the fabrics that I had!

I took pictures of my process, and plan to post a tutorial this week!

Let’s swap dinner recipes tomorrow – k!?

No dishwasher yet :( It needs a bit more work. . .

Happy Monday!
Amy

    Your Christmas stockings are the best I've ever seen. Lovely. I'm so happy to hear you'll be writing a tutorial, as I found these to be inspirational.

    Yay! They are BEAUTIFUL!! I probably won't get to mine until after Thanksgiving :D but I'm looking forward to the tutorial.
    Sorry to hear about your dishwasher. Paper plates and cups for a few days?? :)

    Yeah!!!! I can't wait to see the tutorial for the stockings – they are so pretty. We just got a new puppy, and Ginger needs her own stocking, too.

    my aunt has knited us all stockings, and I have a tree skirt to make (bought it all last year around Halloween but got intimidated and couldn't find the trim Iwanted so put it away…might need to pull it out soon) and my aunt hasn't made my man a stocking yet, but has the girls. Maybe I need to make the family some stockings until A gets his too…or maybe I will print off instructions and set it aside until next year =)

    beautiful stockings. They look like a LOT MORE fun to work on than mopping or doing dishes!!!

    I love these. I may be borrowing this idea for my own family. We already have stockings, but don't have them with us this year.

    These are absolutely adorable!!! I can't wait for the tutorial so I can make some for our new home and our new daughter :)

    Beautiful! I love that everyone has their name on their stocking :)

    Ohhh, Christmas stockings! Such a good reminder for me today as the one I made for my grandson last year got lost in the mail never to arrive. I should probably start on a new one for him NOW so it's ready in time for this Christmas.

    These are great!! I love the star on top – and I love that you are going to post a tutorial.

    Those are wonderful! Wish I wasn't nearly done with all the felted, knit stockings I started last year. I love wonky stars, and the way you mixed the fabrics makes each unique!

    I love the fabrics you used for these stockings! I plan to make my family stockings this year too, they won't be as beautiful as yours though

    Those are so cute! I love that line of fabrics. I have got to get going on my girl's stocking.

    They are delicious, unlike tonight's dinner so I'm glad we didn't swap recipes today :(

    They look awesome. I've inally given up on cross stitching stockings so maybe I'll quilt some instead!

    Gorgeous stockings Amy! You'll have to post a pic of them hanging with goodies in them closer to Christmas!

    Not sure where you want to put recipes for your recipe swap, but I've posted my first recipe here:

    Gorgeous! My sister requested new stockings this year and I was debating on the style/pattern. I absolutely LOVE yours!

    Hey friend, I haven't been here in a while, so hello!

    So, do you make new stockings each year? I only have 2 stockings, my grandma embroidered both of them. One is so special that a few years ago when we nearly had to leave our home for the San Diego fires, I made sure to grab it!

    Great stockings. The fabrics are great. I especially like the coordinated lining. I agree the stars are perfect for stockings. Looking forward to seeing all the recipes tomorrow.

    Very, very pretty Christmas stockings! I really like them…

  35. Brenda November 2, 2009 at 3:49 pm - Reply

    Those are great! We have a jumble of different looks going on in the way of Christmas stockings. I've been thinking of making new ones that are matching in some way.

    Love your stockings. I used to make lots of Christmas stockings when the kids were little but I've only made a couple for the grandkids. Guess I should browse through my Christmas fabrics and make a few more. Thanks!

    You've inspired me! My husband and I started out 33 years ago with just the 2 of us and now our family has grown to 11 (3 married children and 5 grandchildren).

    We have been blessed each year so far to have everyone at our home on Christmas Eve! I hang stockings for all 11 of us but they are a mish-mash of pretty ones and ugly ones…all fairly cheap. NO QUILTED ONES!

    So…I'm hoping to make (or at least start) pretty ones for this Christmas!

    Thanks! Yours are darling!
