OH - MY - GOODNESS.... I just made a trip to BOTH G W's in my area and came home with a pile of sweaters...Now I have got to get Kraken!!! The Holidays are almost here and I am way behind in my little Stocking Business!!
I found a ton of pastels (which are harder to come by) but make such lovely stockings...that is if I don't shrink them to far! :0
I have goaled myself to get 3 stockings done a week...This may not seem like much to you but they take longer than you might think!
The problem is...I'm somewhat of a moody artist...and I seem to be in more of a fall mood....so instead of making what I needed too...
I started working on a squirrel stocking....I wonder where I got the inspiration for this one? :)
These pictures show you how I "build" a stocking...I have an idea in my head and just start cutting the shapes out of felted sweaters...I lay them out on the stocking adding and rearranging as I go. When I like what I have, I pin it and start stitching...almost always by hand.
Well that's where I'm at and why this post is so late. :)
Anyone else in a "Pre-Holiday Panic" like me...
I would love to here from you and find out your managing to get it all done!!
