Christmas is coming

Posted by on Dezember 23, 2007

And now it can, the last of the presents are bought and wrapped and I’ve finished the kids’ stockings. (click for bigger)

I was so worried I wouldn’t find the time to finish these but yesterday turned out to be a good day to sew. The fabric had the stocking pattern on it, all I had to do was cut it out, put in a backing and lining and quilt them. I even machine quilted around the pockets, fur trim and beards so it all looks puffy.

The names aren’t the greatest but considering it was all done free-hand because my machine isn’t an embroidery machine while I simultaneously dressed and undressed Polly Pockets, I think they came out ok.

Oh and here is one more cute little FO that surprisingly enough kept me up until 2:30 am. I had to rip them out a couple of times because those plastic little feet are a tough fit. Here are Baby Born boy’s new socks:

How can he come into this family without some toasty warm handmade socks?? Once again, the pattern for these is written up and available for free, just leave me a comment and I’ll send it off.

Oh gosh, who is having more fun, me or the kids? Christmas can come!!
