Felt Christmas Stockings!

I just finished up some stockings for all the family. I’m really happy with the result.

I have done it using Denyse Schmidt’s free pattern. But, I did a few modifications. First, I did it using only fabrics from my stash. I had some left overs from the furoshikis I made with my sister last year which I decided to used for the trimmings. Both prints are from the Sew Christmas! collection from Alexander Henry. I had some remnants of the wool felt I’ve used for my lily pillow covers published in Stitch. They were going pretty well with the Sew Christmas! prints. So, I’ve decided to use  the green, red and cranberry for the actual stockings. Instead of quilting a layer of batting in between two layers of cotton. I just quilted the felt with some white lining. I did some straight line quilting to achieve a diamond pattern.

I hand embroidered our names in teal on some white cottons which I included in the trimmings.

We don’t have any mantel to hang them up, so I decided to put them up along our stairs just above our couch in the living room.

I did the small size from the pattern, because I didn’t have enough wool felt to go for the larger ones. So now, I just need to find some tiny gifts to fill them up!
