There's something entirely satisfying about making your own Christmas stockings. Sure you could order one of these awesome babies in some entirely awesome fabrics (stop with the awesomeness already), but in the quiet hours of the evening when it's just me and my little pile of Christmas DVDs, it's nice to have some busywork.
I'm still hand stitching, but these babies could be whipped up pretty darn quickly if you knew how to use a sewing machine. We finally have one, but it's currently sitting in a tub underneath Lovely Husband's table. Come the new year, I might just sit myself down and teach myself a few more new tricks - like threading the damn machine or sewing a straight line)
These stockings are simple enough to do by hand, though. The finish is rough as guts on the inside (and only a little ugly on the outside), but all those stitches are put in with love.
