Two years ago I posted some quilted Christmas stockings I made for my husband and myself. Last year I decided to make a set for my family... so I did. And now I'm posting them. Smiley

I went a little bananas buying the fabric. I found a discount fabric warehouse a couple of cities away from where I'm now living and spend three and a half hours shopping for fabric. And then I imported a few from Japan via Etsy.



From top-left on over: my dad's, my brother's, mine, my teenage sister's, my preteen sister's, my stepmom's. Each is lined with red fleece and topped with white faux fur.

I don't know why I have such a fondness for making Christmas stockings. I don't sew all that much otherwise.

Thanks, everyone! I wanted to make more this year, but I think I've run out of people to make them for...

Thanks! I did buy stuff to make some for my Etsy store (which mostly sells jewelry), but I got too busy and didn't end up making any. :p I think this year I'll start making them in like August!
