Christmas Stocking Stunner!

 One VERY proud DD who at nine years old has managed to make a wonderful patchwork stocking!

She learnt to cut strips with a rotary cutter (not for the nervous of disposition!), sewed them together brilliantly with a 1/4" seam to make a stripy tube, cross cut them into 2 1/2" slices, and  unpicked the right short seams to make a diagonal pattern when she sewed them together.

Then she added a premade stripy toe and cuff, and, after the stocking shape was cut out, added a hanging loop as she sewed around the final seams!

What a fabulous job she's done!
I'd be proud of this too!

I'll just have to be proud of her!

Two more sleeps until it gets to see some action!


  1. Hi Plum, that's terrific work. Hope it gets filled with lots of lovely things on Thursday.

  2. Wow! That's awesome! Such a clever girl!


Thanks for leaving a comment! I always appreciate it and will try to respond.
