Class: Muggle Studies OWL (carry-over from Fall)
Name: Evelyn's Stocking
So for my Muggle Studies OWL I made a stocking for my daughter's first Christmas. Although witches and wizards celebrate Christmas too, muggles seem to get extra excited - possibly because it's one of the few times a year they experience what they think is magic! I can imagine Mrs. Weasley stitching up extra-special stockings like these for Ron and Ginny's children, since they both married people raised in the muggle world. How better to make a magical stocking than cover it with sparkling beads and sequins!
This took me almost two months, all squeezed into little crafting sessions where the baby was napping, on "daddy-daughter time" (where my husband takes her out for special time on Sundays), and late at night. Overall hours it probably ran well over 100, since it's 100% hand-stitched and hand-cut. All the little toys are whole, but are tacked into a pocket at the top.
