I pushed my creative ability to the max this week. Having been unable to find a quality Christmas stocking in the store I decided to make some myself. Working without a sewing machine, I took this pattern and hand stitched 3 stockings for my 2 guys and me (the cat gets a tree every year for christmas so he doesn’t need a stocking). Hand stitching was a little daunting but it turned out to be much easier and faster then I could have imagined. The end result was better then I ever imagined.
Can you guess who’s stocking is which? If that wasn’t enough we decided that Magnus needed a bow tie for his Christmas outfit. This proved to be a little easier and quicker but the end result was pretty nice.
Ignore the shirt/ tie combo, it was the first shirt I grabbed to try the tie with but it should look nice with his Christmas clothes.
All in all I think it was a pretty successful week.
