CHRISTMAS CRAFT.. ADVENT STOCKINGS.
So many crafty projects on the go, so little time! I hope you don't mind but I used my phone to snap
These pics as I wanted to get it posted for the weekend.
I settled down this week to make an advent calendar with a difference for my little girls.
It's nearly finished so I thought I'd share how far I've got, so you can still have time to make one
Before next wkend...
Firstly I cut out a template of a stocking just big enough so when stitched together it would
Fit a couple of penny sweets inside. Fold your fabric in half and pin your template, cut around
And you should have two perfectly matching stockings.
I then hemed the top, then placing the fabric wrong way round I then machined them together,
then turned them out the right way.
Mix up your fabrics for a real vintage feel! Now I'm not kidding this is a timely craft and to make
The 24 stockings did take me a couple of hours, but it will look so pretty strung accross the mantle
When it's finished and can be used year after year!
