Christmas comes early

We may be having beautiful weather and a much needed Indian summer but i've just finished off my first Christmas item. These four stockings are for Nina and her family, I hope you-know-who decides they've been good this year and leaves some lovely treats on 25th December! 

They are lined with blue fabric and padded with soft wadding. Each top and toe is a mix of beautiful Scandinivan Folk fabric in a mix of blue and red. The loops are made from red giant ric rac and each side is finished with a row of blue, red and white hand stitching in pearl cotton.

The final touch are the matching name tags. Backed in the blue and red gingham and with a layer of wadding the names are embroidered in red pearl.

Each stocking is unique and I'm planning to create more using the same fabrics as well as other combinations for my craft stall sale in November.
