My Daughter's Stocking, FINALLY done


I cannot believe that this is actually done!  Seriously, this is a project I started forever ago.  I would spend several weeks working for many hours a day, and then fizzle out and forget about it for a few months.


I am so proud to finally have finished my daughter's stocking!!!  Now, I have to start on my son's!  *LOL* 



This is a felt kit from Bucilla.  They make BREATHTAKING designs.  I cut, sequined, beaded, embroidered, did some hand sewing, and wa-lah!  It's not really very creative since I used a kit, but certainly TONS of hours of work and a lot of love.  No one will ever stitch it exactly the same.

I don't have much else to say about this one.  I'm super proud, and relieved I finally completed it.  If you like this and would like to try some felt kit projects of your own I buy my kits from Herrscheners.  I have done some ornaments before and they were SO much fun.  So, if you want to try this out that would be a good place to look.  I'm sure there are others too, I just happen to start ordering from them a few years back and like them.

Wow, Amber!!! This LOOKS like a project that took some time -- and lots of love!!! Your DD's stocking is just stunning!!! And you've gotten it done early! How're you're going to hold on to it without wanting to let her have it before xmas?!!! I don't think I could do that...lol!!!

You certainly did do a fantastic job on the stocking, sweetie! And, tfs, but that looks a bit too time-consuming and detailed for me; I'll just admire yours... heee-heee!

Gorgeous!! Reminds me of the ones my MIL creates (but she "freehands" hers). I've looked at these kits before. Thanks for sharing yours - it's always nice to a "non-catalog" version. TFS!!!

Wow Amber this is amazing. It is so special that you made a hand made stocking for your daughter:) She will have it and treasure it forever. Just because it came from a kit does not mean it is not that creative...this is beyond creative Amber. I can tell how much time went into this...just figuring out how to lay everything out must have been some task. I have to check these kits out...love it!
