This was my biggest project for Christmas crafting. I saw this pattern for retro space age Christmas stockings on Pinterest and I knew I had to make them. I started the first stocking last year but never finished, so it was my goal this time to get them done. It wasn’t an expensive or difficult project, but it was time consuming. Mine aren’t perfect, but I think the end result was worth it and the kids love them! I let the boys choose which applique they wanted for their stocking and the colors, and opted to make a girly robot for River. I wish I had better photos, but my phone camera is all I have right now – we lost the cable for our nice camera and can’t find it anywhere. : (
And here they are on the mantel:
And yes, that’s a fourth stocking that we used to announce baby #4, and no, I didn’t make that one – definitely bought it. I look forward to making another matching stocking next year. There are a couple of letters that aren’t quite straight in the names. I may redo them, but that will be next year when I start the one for baby #4. I’m just counting this as a project that was finished in time (seriously, how often does that happen?) and it came out well considering it was the first time I’d ever attempted something like this.
