Handmade Family Stockings

 I had sooooooo much fun making these!!!! They are the first stockings I've ever made for my family and I love how they turned out! The fabrics, the embellishments and the stocking design all came together just the way I wanted. A very satisfying project! 

I used the free stocking pattern from Pattern Revolution. You can find it here
Additionally, I had these very special Embellishment Charms that I have been waiting to find the perfect project to use, and this was it!!!

I saw these beautiful charms at Quilt Market and couldn't wait to get my hands on some! You know how I always love using handmade labels to add that special touch to my items, but these take that a notch further! Aren't they beautiful!?!?! They offer a three dimensional accent that can be added to your handmade gifts for all your friends and family and come in a variety of designs. Embellishment Charms by Dritz Quilting can be found or requested wherever you purchase Dritz sewing products. 



Here's a close up of how I used them on our stockings. Each person chose their favorite color or design making for an even more personal touch. I love these and will definitely be using them on more of my projects in the future!

We are getting so very excited about Christmas Day being just around the corner! Our family loves this time of year and all that it represents! 

Our stockings are hung by the chimney with care. :) Maybe, just maybe, I'll get mom & dad's finished in time.....we'll see I guess!
Hope you and your families are having a wonderful season as well!
Merry Christmas!
