Stockings Hung (and made) with Care

I searched my blog, and realized that I never posted the stocking that I made K last year. Now that I have B's stocking done, I'll post pictures of both. Kiera's is a sweet floral with the cheery red polka-dot and pink pom-poms to add a bit of Christmas whimsy.

I've been trying really hard to not spend any money on anything I can make and do myself, as well as not spending on things that aren't absolutely a necessity. I saw lots of cute fabrics online that I wanted to make B's stocking out of, and then I realized I had perfectly cute fabric here that I could use. I pulled out the trusty Cowpokes fabric (which is perfect for B since he's the only true Texan in our home.) I bought a smidge of the red stars, used some red ric-rak I got from my great-aunt's estate sale, and some yardsale jute I braided for the hanger.


Now they're ready for Santa to fill them with goodies. Handmade goodies that is!

did you make up the pattern (shape) or did you use one? I love them!
