Homemade Christmas

I just finished sewing Christmas stockings for the family and I’m feeling quite punctual since it is December first!  I used the prudent baby tutorial and added some embellishments.  I made fabric-covered buttons for the boy’s stockings and finally tested out the embroidery functions on my sewing machine to monogram.  I decorated my stocking and the little big-girl’s with yo-yos, a fabric covered button, and a little bling for our initials. Although I managed to break five needles during this project, I’m pretty happy with the end result.  It was my first time sewing with batting and I think I may even be inspired to give quilt-making a try. I’m looking forward to seeing these (or at least the kids stockings!) stuffed to the brim on Christmas day.
