Most of us are familiar with the Christmas stocking kits that are made out of felt and trimmed with sequins and beads. My mother made them for my kids and our little guy needed one this year. I bought the kit at Hobby Lobby, I have no idea where Mother and I were finding them over 30 years ago. Anyway, never having worked with felt, sequins, and tiny tiny beads it was quite the challenge. As I finished the project I had the hang of it and things were going smoothly. The main difference I discovered between the new and the old kits were the amount of "sparkle" that they now have which means A LOT more beads and details. Sounds about right for our times doesn't it? I'm confident that I will be finding beads and sequins in the couch for the next 5 years.
Do you have special Christmas stockings made with love at your house?
