I know what you must be thinking…”Holy cow, she’s posting twice in one week!” I know it's crazy…lol. I just finished my mom’s Christmas gift and thought I would share it with you. Every year I make her some decoration that consists of snowflakes, snowman and the color blue. This year I made a stocking (I’m going to make all our stocking this year) But this stocking isn’t for Santa to fill. This I filled with a pine spray, some beaded sprays and a string of lights. The stocking idea came from Amy Butler. I was looking online for a pattern to make our stockings and I found this blog that talked about this felt stocking pattern. When I went to the pattern the picture showed this stocking hanging on a bike with pine and a present sticking out of the top…so yeah, I stole the idea. I’m not a sewer so this pattern was perfect. I didn’t really follow the direction on how to sew it I just kind of did my own thing. The felt was incredible cheap and I got it from JoAnn Fabrics. The sprays, lights and snowman came A.C. Moore. I filled the stocking with used plastic bags from the grocery store to give it volume. And finally the present box opens up and thats where the battery housing for the lights are held (so she can easily turn them off and on and it won't be seen) It was pretty simple once I got started.Hope you like it! If you're interested, the pattern can be found at this site
