Christmas stocking

This stocking has been sitting and waiting for me to complete for over a year. It was going to be a present for my niece last year, but it didn't quite happen.

I cut out some white fabric with silver butterflies on it and made the main part of the stocking. I have lined the stocking with satin, so it's all nice. The pink frill has silver sparkles on it, because I wanted it to be a girly stocking, not your normal Christmas stocking.

As you can see, I have added this beautiful butterfly to hang off the stocking. It is actually an ear ring I never really wore. Little extra's like this make a craft project extra special. It is a more personal touch.
I have made a matching stocking for my eldest daughter too. This year she is old enough to understand what is going on a bit better than other years.
Making stockings and filling them with goodies makes a great gift. There are so many different types of fabric out there, you can get one to suit anyones personality or interests. You can bake things to go in the stocking or the stocking itself can make a wonderful, thoughtful gift.
