A couple of weeks before Christmas, I shared a post about some secret sewing that I'd been busy stitching for some very special children. Now they've been received I can share better pictures! I've used my favourite pattern for making Christmas stockings, Waiting for Santa, by the Australian designer Leanne Beasley. I've been making these stockings for several years, and the best part is choosing the fabrics and trimmings. These ones have been made with a selection of fabrics from the Cool Yule collection by The Henley Studio for Makower UK...
...the name tags have been hand embroidered using a selection of Cosmo embroidery threads in co-ordinating colours, and when they were finished, the name tags were stitched in place using these gorgeous turquoise vintage buttons...
...obviously it wouldn't be Christmas without a few chocolate treats, so these were filled to the brim with edible goodies, including chocolate coins, chocolate robins, festive shapes, and of course a delicious chocolate Santa...
...and here are those stockings, absolutely filled to the brim, before they were placed under the Christmas tree for some very special little children.
Hi - welcome to my quilting blog! My passions are my family, my dog, my friends and sewing, not necessarily in that order!
