Here's a little peek at a secret Christmas I've been busy stitching for some very special children. 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 selectionof 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, but I won't share a picture of the tags yet or else it will surprise for the children! Once 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!
