being crafty: the finished product

on December 4, 2011

Remember I told you I was working on a craft project? Well, here is the finished product!

I hand-stitched our names onto stockings! I bought the stockings at Hobby Lobby and used cross stitching thread. First I wrote out our names on the stocking in green washable marker and used a simple backstitch to complete the names. It was time consuming but I am very pleased with them 🙂 They help to turn our game shelf into a makeshift mantel!

Are you hanging stockings this year? Do you get gifts in them? If so, what was your favorite stocking stuffer?

    I’m sure you know that mom gave up stockings a long time ago. I can’t even remember the last time I got something in a stocking.
