So with Halloween behind me by mere hours I've begun working on Christmas projects. Tonight I made the stocking for 1 of 2 classes we'll be doing on Saturday. Once I get started with a needle and thread it's hard for me to put it down. I did however resist my impulse to stitch over every square inch of the fabric as is my norm...
This is a good size stocking too, you could really load it up with a bunch of small gifts which is exactly what I'm going to do since Gracelyn said that she wanted it to be hers.
I love this star with the mish mash of buttons. It was really easy, I had a glittered star that I put down and I put a dot at each point and then sewed a button over each dot. Once I did that I took embroidery floss and wrapped it in a star pattern twice. If I wasn't so tired I wouldn't have thought of it! Stitching into the night has it's advantages.
