Guess what? I finally, actually, got some done along with projects from sketches that were with the stocking drawings. I plan to post those also. I am on a roll. Wow! I really think the end is near.
The actual fun part is coordinating the fabrics and trims-matching what goes with what-does this look good with that? Will this trim be better? I finally had to stop designing and get to work so the stockings might get done before Christmas 2012.
I pulled out some beautiful home dec fabric that worked really well and gives the victorian look I was going for. Then there are some other fancy fabrics that I have kept small pieces squirreled back. It really doesn't take a lot to make these and they are a gift in themselves.
The Victorian Stocking Pattern is available in my Craftsy pattern store @ http://www.craftsy.com/user/43851/pattern-store along with my other patterns.
