A couple weeks ago, I realized the kids needed Christmas stockings. My original plan was to knit stockings for all of us, but alas, there is that whole TIME issue. You know. My lack of it. So, I started imagining a simple, straight-line quilted stocking in my head. And seriously, minutes later, Rachael of imagine gnats posted a link to her tutorial on Instagram. Problem solved. Afternoon wasted on Pinterest = averted.
I erroneously assumed I could whip these up in a couple hours one night, but they took longer than expected since I quilted my lines so close together. They were super easy though, and I love the result. I worked on them an hour or two a night for several nights, and they are DONE.
I had also planned to applique our initials on the fronts of the stockings, but I couldn't find a fabric/font I really loved. And my machine doesn't really do embroidery/monogramming, so I decided to just leave them as-is. Finished is better than perfect, right? Simplicity is a good thing.
How about you? What are you making for the holidays?
