A few years ago I'd bought a metre each of these bright and cheerful fabrics from the Cool Yule collection by The Henley Studio for Makower UK. I'd been saving them for a special project, and finally it was time to cut them up! Two new members of the family needed a Christmas stocking, and my favourite stocking pattern is Waiting For Santa, by Leanne Beasley. Pellon H630 has been fused to the wrong side of the stocking front to give them so structure, and they're lined with matching fabrics. I've added some bright trimmings to the stocking tops...
...the pattern includes instructions on making these cute hand embroidered labels. I've used 3 strands of bright coloured embroidery thread, and attached the labels with bright coloured buttons...
...a hanging loop is really useful for hanging them on a door knob. Now these just need to be filled with some "little" gifts for Taylor and Charlie, ready for when they visit Foreman Towers on Boxing Day!
