Christmas Stocking



I've been watching Kirstie's Homemade Christmas, and although I didn't have time to blow a few baubles or make any soap in time for the festive season I was inspired to make a Christmas Stocking for our newest granddaughter. Luckily I have more than enough fabrics, buttons and ribbons in store to get going the minute the enthusiasm strikes, and it is far from the first Christmas Stocking I have made, but what I really liked was the idea of making the lining and top all in one operation. I have to admit getting the placing wrong at the first attempt but it is a really neat idea. If you didn't watch the programmes you can look it up on the Channel 4 website.
