The stockings have (finally) been hung by the chimney with care. It happened a little later than usual this year as I had to actually make one for Olive first.
I used this lovely, easy-to-follow tutorial from Cluck Cluck Sew and was pleased with the result.
I sewed the jingle bells on just to give Father Christmas a fright when he tries to fill it silently.
And yes, I know it’s ENORMOUS but I used the dimensions of her big sister’s stocking, made by my Grandmother Betty. Anyone with kids (or indeed siblings) will understand the imperative for the measurements to be exactly the same.
Stockings are absolutely one of my favourite bits of Christmas. Have you hung yours yet?
