As soon as signups went up for the Christmas Stocking Swap Round 6, I IMMEDIATELY knew what I wanted to make.  I just hoped and prayed that whomever I ended up with for a partner would LOVE the idea...boy was I in luck!  murbeck was my partner in this swap and she was TOTALLY down for a button-encrusted stocking.

This is what I came up with after mulling over what to put on here that wasn't going to be too hard to reproduce in buttons, and wasn't religious-oriented, but still festive.



I'm head over heels THRILLED with how this came out!!!!  I ADORE this and SOOOOOOOO wanted to keep it when I was done.  murbeck, you're one lucky lady, lemme tell ya Wink

Here's a couple close ups of the button-gasm that is...my FIRST stocking!!




(check out the cute little cookie jar button!)



Oh, the HOURS that went into this!!  I have a picture in my head for what I want to put on my next stocking for myself.  Gotta stock up on more buttons Shocked

Tell me what you think!  C&C welcome Grin

Nope, totally handmade by me.  I have a stocking pattern I cut out, cut batting to pad between inside and outside fabrics, and put on the buttons and bias tape to complete.

We decided not to put up a tree this year, as another family member is hosting Christmas Day at their house, but we are decorating with stockings and garland and a few Hallmark motion ornaments to keep it festive around our place.  I have less than 30 days before the holiday to get another one completed...or I can just plan on it for next year LOL!
