Our Family Calico and Burlap Christmas Stockings


I Just had to share these cute Christmas stockings I made at the request of my beautiful daughter.  
I'm thrilled with the way they turned out, and so is she! :)


I sewed the body of the stockings from calico fabric, then folded the tops over a strip of burlap and added some white ric-rac trim.


Then I cut some strips of red and white check fabric and tied them into bows.  I threaded 2 silver bells on some twine and hot glue gunned them on the burlap trim.

Then I printed off our names in a fancy Victorian font onto transfer paper and ironed them on the top.

Similarly I found a picture of some cute holly sprigs, printed them on transfer paper and ironed them on too.

They are just the right size for a few little treats. :)

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas. :)
