Handmade Christmas Stocking


This week I traveled to my favorite little fabric boutique in Columbus for a night of sewing with some ladies.  On Monday I finished work, quickly drove to Columbus, sat down at Sew To Speak and introduced myself to the 5 women I would be spending the next 3+ hours with.  Our instructor was Mary Dugan, who is an amazing quilter that also blogs about her sewing adventures over here.  She taught us quilting basics and how to make our own customized stocking.  

I am so in love with the look of this retro inspired stocking, that I now want to make 10 more of them.  Family members: Beware.

The only problem that I ran into was finding a place to hang my stocking since we do not have a fireplace. Luckily, my chalk wall saved the day and I have my stocking hung ready to be stuffed with some candy and nail polish!  (...ahem, ahem hubby)

Here are some photos from our class and a look at the other adorable stockings created that night:



Mary taught us that quilting straight lines is easiest when using masking tape to keep your rows straight.


The lining for my stocking is a soft grey and white floral fabric.





I love all the fabrics used this night!  Makes me so ready for Christmas season.




I'm in love obsessed with this "Oh, deer" fabric from Moda.
I want to buy it in every color.


My stocking is hung above my workspace in LBF studios <3

I would love to sell them in my shop, but I think I might be a little too late on getting them made and in my shop. I definitely want to make them for next year though! Thanks for visiting my blog! :)
