This stocking is for my Brother in law. The lining reminds me of the Aperture symbol from the game Portal.
This stocking is fully lined and has french seams.
This is the last of my stockings to share, while I made more (13 in total) I just ran out of time to photograph them, I started all these non traditional Christmas Stocking because of a bizarre fever dream I had in October, I’m really happy that I decided to “follow my dream” and make all of these, I truly hope they are appreciated and thank you so much for viewing my posts on them. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you all.
I made this lovely Stocking for my sister in law, she really liked this fabric while visiting me. This fabric is the largest quantity of fabric I have ever purchased, at 10 yards, it was hilarious to fold it in one piece after washing.
Made this Minecraft inspired stocking for my youngest nephew, I even found a Minecraft bat plushy to put into it. The green reminded me of a creeper and the red, redstone. The opposite side is reversed, the squares are a red version , and the stone top part is green stone.
I made this Hawaiian print Christmas stocking for my super chill youngest brother in law. The idea made me smile, I think this one, out of all the non traditional stockings I made, was the funnest to make.
I really love this stocking for my sister in law,Its not really visible but there is gold metallic that lines the paisley print, The blue is so bright against the black background it looks almost like it is black lighted. It is fully lined in purple rose fabric with french seams. This stocking is closest to the decor I saw in my fever dream, in a two story brownstone boutique.
Continuing my non traditional Christmas stockings inspired by a vivid fever dream, is my lilac and dot stocking for my sister in law, I love lilacs, they don’t grow well where I live now, but growing up, they would tower above me sending out its sweet scent in every direction. I do have a small pink lilac in a container in my large south facing window that is doing quite well, and look forward to its blooms in the spring.
This stocking is fully lined with french seams, and has a ribbon loop. I really love mixing dots and floral, I think it came out well. I have ten stockings I have finished sewing, 3 more to go.
I had a fever dream of Christmas Stockings in non traditions colors and themes,this was in October, I decided to make them this year and got started right away, I made my own pattern and started planning. After a lot of work , I have made 10, 3 more to go. Each is one of a kind, designed for each person in mind .
This is for my 13 year old niece, fully lined with black and tiny white dots with enclosed seams, The loop is ribbon, i will share all my stockings. I hope you enjoy them as much as I had dreaming of them.
The second apron I made as a Christmas present was for my sister in law. I made it fully lined in this beautiful black and white floral damask, with a comfy elastic waistband and 3 rows of lace 2 black and 1 white trimming the bottom.
I added a coordinating side ribbon and a strip of black glitter ribbon across the bottom for a little sparkle.
Then a pocket that I matched up to the pattern, so it wouldn’t detract from the skirt like look I was going for.
This Christmas I handmade most of my presents this year. While it was stressful and exhausting It was well worth the effort. Everyone was very happy, This fully lined apron I made especially for a Sister in law, it reminded me of a beer garden girl so much I wanted to give her two pint mugs to go with them.
The Brown fuzzy Trim I added was my favorite addition to the apron, it went really nice with the cream eyelet lace. I used four small bows on each end of the side ribbons that I attached with the herring bone stitch ( which when used that way reminds me of fish net)
I have always felt that having an apron tied around the waist to be uncomfortable, so I started about 7 aprons ago making them with an elastic waistband my mother who is very tiny, loves them since they don’t slid off of her frame.
Adding the pocket was difficult to line up the pattern with out wasting fabric but I succeeded, you can hardly see it, I don’t think the recipient even realized it was there .
