I have quite a Christmas craft list of my own this year: handmade Christmas cards, ornaments for co-workers, stockings, tree trimmings. . . I am doubting that it will all get done by December 25. But I seem to be well on my way.
My very first Christmas craft was finished last night, and I think it turned out great.
My very first (of five) felt stockings. I used Martha Stewart's Holly Stocking pattern, but substituted felt for linen and wooden beads for felt ones.
A second stocking has also been completed, but that one is a surprise. I'll have to wait until after Christmas to post a picture of that one!
The third and fourth stockings are for my cats, Drusilla and Daphne. I'm still working on both of those, but Drusilla's is coming along nicely.
The fifth stocking is mine and I still have no idea what I am going to do for that one. Oh well, four out of five 'aint bad. :)
I am also very happy to report that 100% of the materials I am using on all five of my stockings are from my craft stash, so the stockings are costing $0.00!!!
And now I leave you with one of my favorite things about Christmas, the music! And what's better than '80s Christmas music?!
Enjoy all of the Christmas parties today!!!
