Each of these takes me about a month to make (at about 2-3 hrs a day)  They are for my whole family Mom, dad, 3 brothers, 2 sister-in-laws and my boyfriend.  They're tacky-licious in my opinion, I love sequins, I'm 3 away from being done and then my mom will have the whole set.  They're made from kits with some personal embellishments and a lot of extra embroidery on my part.  Plese let me know what you think! Smiley


UPDATE : here are 3 more of the completed stockings - I'm currently working on #6 featuring MUCH ribbon embroidery



Thanks for all your kind comments!

These are great!  My mom made my sister and me each one when we were born and we still have them.  I'm making one for my boyfriend for this Christmas.  Good luck getting them done in time.  I know how time consuming they are.  Show us the others when they're done   Wink

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
