Elf Stitchette Stockings...



Three big Christmas stockings for the babies --
Mission Accomplished!




I used Wee Wonderfuls' free Elf Stitchette pattern for the cute children and Doe-C-Doe's alphabet letters for the tops. This took a little resizing and fiddling, but I'm happy with the results.



I added red & white ticking for the toe and heel and cuff and the back has a pre-quilted natural muslin that makes the stockings stiff and sturdy feeling. Now it's onto more embroidery projects! It's such a gorgeous Indian Summer day here that may have to take my projects to the picnic table.

  7. Love, love, love the stockings, Jody. What lucky babies. These will be a treasure forever. I can picture them hanging, Martha-Stewart style, of course, on a very festive mantle come Christmas.
