i decided on a whim to sew up some christmas stockings. we only had 3 of the classic red and white fuzzy stockings (1 of them being a bit smaller than the others) and since we have 4 kiddos we needed to revamp things a little. originally i envisioned using felt however i had a remnant of white cotton and decided to "use what i have" and came up with these ruffly stockings.
|a close up of the top. i added a burlap flower with red beaded centers and red ric-rac as a hanger. both these things are pinned on so i can change it if i decide to change my color scheme. i left the ruffle edges raw to give it a rustic look.|
