Making a Christmas stocking!

Perth, Australia
September 28, 2016 7:55am CST
This is my very first time making a Christmas stocking. I'm making one for my friend in Texas but shhhh he doesn't know about it! My dad helped me with drawing up the shape on the pieces of felt but then I sewed the two pieces together myself to make the stocking. Next, I will be sewing the white on top. I've been having fun making this. I haven't even looked up how to make it lol I just bought the stuff I needed and started making it. I will be sewing his name on it too and a few other things but thought I'd show you what I've done so far.

@Daljinder THAT was so cute and funny oh my god lol Thank you! And yeah it's partially why I've been out and about. Yeah but I can't send anything yet anyway since he is moving house. He is going back to Dallas so I can't do anything until I have a new address. Still kinda early anyway.

@vivaladani Very impressive! that is especially good if you didn't even read about how to do it. You must be a natural in crafts then; I bought one last year for my hamster Mart's first Christmas last year a VERY expensive one that cost me 20 dollars for one, but my Marty gets whatever is the best. I can't sew at all, so i admire you sewing it together yourself. Are you embroidering his name on it or are you going to do what I would do, cut them out of material and glue them to the stocking? Lol! Do yo have any idea what else you are going to add? I think you are a good friend to your friend in Texas, Just hope he doesn't read my lot or the secrets out

@Marty1 Thank you! Haha gluing was an option of mine but I want to sew it in. I'm wanting to so it all together. I do have somewhat of an idea but not totally certain yet in general. Thank you very much. I want to try and spoil him since he has always been there for me. LOL and yeah he doesn't really come on here anymore so I think we are safe.

Good job and good on you for doing something so thoughtful. I haven't had a Christmas stocking for over 40 years but I made sure my kids had them. A Christmas stocking is a big part of Christmas and it's good to see people still have them. Your friend will love it.
