I decided to hand embroider names on the stockings...
you know, just to be more difficult and time consuming.
I found a pretty font, printed everybody's name and traced it with a pencil on fabric.
It's not too difficult to make your own template for a stocking. So I got 3 pieces of card stock, taped them together, drew a big fat stocking and cut. it. out.
hand embroidery time!
using the template, I cute out 8 pieces of burlap and 8 pieces of lining
using pinking shears, I cut squares of the names I embroidered
I sewed the names on the unfinished stockings, then sewed the stocking together inside out, turned it right side out, put a ribbon on it and...
aren't we a cute family of stockings!
