It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas in my sewing room! Yesterday’s project was a stocking for my most recent swap. Since my partner’s favorite colors were the redwhiteaqua combination, I decided to highlight this color in my stocking and then used Jennifer Paganelli’s “Sophia Stocking” from Happy Home as the pattern. This particular pattern was super easy to work with, although I admit I didn’t really follow the directions very closely. Since it is unlined, I serged a majority of the seams so it has a clean finish when you look inside and also embroidered my partner’s name to the cuff to personalize it (plus give it a bit more color since the cuff looks a bit plain without it). Overall, I’m really pleased with the size and shapedesign of this stocking – I may have to think about making more personalized versions for friends and family this year!
