It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas?

There may be only 54 days until Christmas, but I only have 30 more days to craft for my Christmas Stocking swap! Even though I’ve slowly worked on the ‘fillers’, I thought I had better get to the real ‘meat and potatoes’ of this swap and work on the stocking itself. My partner is a huge fan of owls so I decided to use a print she has indicated she liked and McCall 2991 (view F). I went with a solid for the cuff of the stocking, but it looked really bare so I opted to bring up some of the design by using a fusible webbing and cut out an owl (I embellished it some by adding a few rhinestones as well).

This was my first time working with this McCall stocking pattern and I think it may be my last. While the design is really cute, the stocking is not lined and is overall rather flimsy. I also wouldn’t recommend this pattern if you intend on actually filling it – it runs a bit on the small side (or maybe my stuffers are just too big).

      I totally agree! I think this year, I’m making a JUMBO stocking – I remember getting one when I was a kid and it was AWESOME!
