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.

This stocking is fully lined and has french seams

Lilacs and Dots Christmas stocking

037dad

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.

My favorite apron so far, made while blaring Rammstein,and finished in record time. This apron is more me than any made before, black with white dot, with red roses and white daisies, it is trimmed in cream and red lace. Going to have a hard time letting go of this one.

Red Rose/White Dot Apron

red rose apron with white

Ah roses is there anything more simple while still being so elegant? I fell in love with this rose fabric and it took a long time for me to cut into it, I’m very pleased with how it came out. Like all my apron this is fully lined. The attached half apron is white dot on white very subtle but I think it adds a lot.

I added apple green topstitching to the rose fabric, and finished off with red and white lace. I have started to refer to this pattern that I have created as a “tartlett apron”

I am such a sucker for dots,I find them so sweet and simple. I made this baby blue with white dot apron, it, like all my aprons are fully lined. Its hard to tell but the fully lined attached half apron is white paisley.  I added 2 layers of lace baby blue and white.

I never really wanted an apple fabric until now.  I am actually thinking of making my self a dress with it. The pockets are  copper metallic dot, and the black has tiny black apple blossoms that don’t really show on here. This was a lot of firsts for me, first making ruffles for a project, first collars ( free formed them I don’t even own a pattern with a collar) and first triple lined, all my others are dual layers. Took my 5 days in total.
