Christmas stockings

These are from a few years ago.  My mom made these really cool patchwork Christmas stockings for my brother, sis-in-law and niece.  I used some waste canvas to cross stitch their names on the velvet to go on the top of the stockings.  It was a lot of fun but difficult; it was the first time I had used waste canvas and on top of that I used satin floss with Kreinik metallic floss, yeah it wasn't the smartest decision I made but it all turned out, so I am glad that I toughed it out and didn't give up.


  1. These were fun to make. I had never done crazy quilting. With your cross stitch it really made these beautiful.

  2. I think they were beautiful as is, my cross stitch was just the finishing touch. I think it's cool though that we both attempted things we had never done before and it turned out so cool!
