My mother-in-law is spending Christmas Day with us, so obviously I needed to make a special Christmas stocking for her too. Using the "Waiting for Santa" pattern by the Australian designer Leanne Beasley, I chose some cream self-patterned fabrics, along with some vintage lace tor the trimming. The label was hand embroidered, using DMC embroidery thread in a neutral tone to go with the theme of the stocking. The final flourish was a pretty button from my mother-in-law's button tin. She'd given me her button collection ages ago and I love using them in my projects...
...now it just needs to be filled with a few tiny gifts and hidden under the tree ready for the big day. I hope she'll like it!
