Christmas Stockings


These are something new I have been busy sewing for my stall. Today I am at the hospital craft fair so I hope a few will sell today. When I went to Thetford my friend Lynsey spotted a fat quarter of stockings which have numbers on each one as they are meant to be used as an advent calendar. I cut out each stocking and pin it to red felt and then blanket stitch around it, sewing Christmas buttons on the numbers and adding some ribbon from Crafty Ribbons.


Here are a couple in more detail. They are the ideal size for a gift card, tickets or a small gift and make a novel way of presenting a gift.
