Hard to believe that November is almost over, isn’t it? I had the brilliant idea that everyone on my Christmas list should get at least something handmade (No, this isn’t stressful in the least! Yes, that was sarcasm! – Ed.), and decided to post the results here.
First up, a handmade stocking for my newly single friend to decorate his bachelor pad. We had been at Fabricland this summer when he saw the reindeer flanellette and decided he liked it, and this seemed like the perfect project for it.
This is the same pattern I used to make my Star Trek stocking last year – which, I’m pleased to report, the recipient is super-excited about hanging up at his desk again this year.
I used a sumptuous red satin – formerly a queen-sized sheet – for the lining, and I love the luxurious look and feel it lends to the whole operation.
So, that’s one down….
