The Stockings Were Hung

Website update: We are still experiencing some issues, but I think we are narrowing in on the problem. Thank you to those who emailed me re. their success or not at accessing the site. 🙂

Back to stitchy matters! As you may or may not remember, I’ve been busy working on a Christmas stocking for my dad for the past year. I started it back in November 2015, and I put the final stitches in about a month ago. But, like always, I was really worried about my ability to sew it up nicely, so it has been sitting in my craft room for several weeks. Christmas waits for no man, though.

All Hearts Come Home Stocking, designed by Dimensions

The design is All Hearts Come Home Stocking from Dimensions. It is a kit, and I used all the included materials. The biggest change I made was to leave the wording off. (You can see how it should look here.) I also added a lining to it (the instructions in the kit do not include adding a lining). It is backed with the felt included in the kit.

The Stockings Were Hung…

So far I’ve completed three stockings: one for my mom, one for my dad, and one for the little man. (It does have his name on it, I’ve just removed it for this picture.) I’ve still got two more to go, although I haven’t decided if I will stitch one next year or take a year off.

Stockings and Christmas Tree

 

Save

  1. Great choice not to stitch the words on the stocking – I think it takes away – not adds to. One of my goals for 2017 is to stitch a stocking

  2. Heather: Lovely stocking, I am liking it better without the words, it seems more inviting, beautiful stocking all around and hung on the mantel, such a lovely site.
    Your tree is beautiful.

    Merry Christmas

  3. The stockings look wonderful all made up and displayed, beautiful finishing.
    Lucky they have short names. My Mum ordered machine-stitched ones for my boys and had to get special permssion for my younger son’s very long name!
