I started with a pretty pile of strips that I cut at all different widths, and turned them into some pretty awesome stockings. I have been wanting to make some matching stockings for myself and my 2 boys (the hubby and the baby) and I am so glad that I finally have!
Well I've made stockings for Jeff and I, but I have plenty of strips left over to make 2 more. So William can have one, and mystery baby #2 that we're planning on having next year will have one too!
I can't wait to finish up the other two stockings, and then I have to patiently wait for Christmas decorations to hit the stores so I can get some cute stocking holders. This year will be our first Christmas with a fireplace to actually hang stockings on! I am quite excited because I love to decorate for Christmas.
So after all my jabbering :) It is finally time for the giveaway!! Gina has graciously offered up a Layer Cake of Folk Art Holiday for one of my lucky readers. The giveaway will run from now until the end of the Blog Hop on July 31st.
How to Enter:
All you have to do to enter the giveaway is to leave a comment telling me your favorite holiday tradition. Mine is from when I was little and my siblings and I would always sleep in the same room on Christmas Eve, that way no one could sneak to see our presents in the middle of the night.
Bonus Entry: My followers get an extra entry, Just leave an additional comment telling me how you follow me :) Facebook, Instagram, Bloglovin, GFC, etc.
Thank you everyone for stopping by today, and I hope you liked the stockings I made! I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone else makes with this lovely fabric.
