|I love this little guy!|
It is my sweet little girls first Christmas and we are all so happy she is with us to celebrate this lovely 'family' time of year. She is such a little poppet and brings lots of happiness to us all. Being such a good girl I'm sure Santa will bring her lots of presents so of course she needs a Christmas Stocking for him to leave her gifts in.
And what a brilliant project to keep Mummy creatively content :-)
So with some lovely turquoise (my new fav colour) festive fabric, my cutting mat and rotary cutter and a rough pattern made from one of the other children's stockings, I patched some squares and quilted a bit then cut out the boot shape.
and crocheted a white 'shell' cuff to the top, to kinda look a bit like fur but not, cos I wanted to get a bit of crochet in there and am very, very pleased with how it worked!
A loop at the top to hang it from....
some little balls to adorn....
and YAY, all done. A gorgeous stocking for my little darling!
Gosh I am sooooo happy with this, I'm giddy with excitement, I'm surprised I have not used more exclamation marks in this post!!!!!!! Bear with me, I just need to do some star-jumps....... that's better, released some excitement :0)
The stitch pattern I used for the cuff is originally from here. The rest is all from MY HEAD.
I now need to do some food shopping but am too scared to venture into the mayhem. My sister-in-law is going at midnight, maybe I will attempt a night-time flit...
