Hooray! This was the year to make us all matching Christmas stockings. I embroidered our names in Scriptina font and digitized a few designs--mittens, aluminum trees, and snowmen--to adorn the fronts. Of course, I had to include linen to bring them all together. The front of each is a patchwork of fabrics. layered with cotton batting and muslin, then quilted. The back is simply a piece of 100% linen and the lining is natural muslin. I'm smiling right now at actually having done some Christmas sewing!
Hallie hates her (surprise) because I used a cursive font. She is afraid she won't know which one is hers. "I'm only 5! I can't read cursive!" No matter what I said, nothing could assuage her fears. But that's life as usual in this house--someone is always mad and I can never make everyone happy. Too bad Tootse, 'cause I like 'em and they're staying.
