Holiday Traditions Exchange

Holiday Traditions Exchange 2009




Sew Liberated has been running the Holiday Traditions Exchange for the past two years and my December schedule was light enough this year that I was finally able to join. I put together a little package of recipes, my holiday traditions, my favorite Christmas music and this stocking for my partner, Carrie, at sweetmommydreams.

Stitchette Stocking



I've been eyeing this Elf Stitchette pattern from wee wonderfuls ever since it was published a few years ago and finally had an excuse to stitch it up and turn it into a stocking. 

Elf Stocking Detail

I based the pattern for the stocking on these stockings that I made a few years ago. The stocking is lined with a green polka dot fabric and a layer of thin cotton batting. I had fun in the trim aisle and used an iron on rick rack and a pom pom trim that I secured with a zig zag stitch. For the foot and toe, I used fusible webbing to adhere it to the stocking base and then used a zig zag stitch to applique it to the fabric.

  18. LOVE THESE!! I am embarrassed to say that I have had 3 of these elves made (one for each kid) for over 2 years now. Along with the sketch for the stockings that they will adorn. And they're still not finished. You've inspired me!! (And thank you for visiting my blog. Your comments gave me a big cheesy smile).
