1st swap complete!

Really enjoyed my first ever swap, the stocking swap hosted by Selina. Have never attempted a stocking before but used an old one I already had to make the pattern.

I bought some really sweet glittery red fabric and used some gingham/christmas fabric to cut out the 'ho ho ho' letters. I then blanket stitched around them in red thread. I sewed some tiny pale pink pom pom trim around the stocking's edge and some hot pink/baby pink ribbons along the top. I made a hot pink pom pom and attached it with some red gingham ribbon. I also added a cute little ceramic button too.
My stocking came with all the trimmings!
Full to the brim.
All packed up and ready to go. Happy hanging Pam and a VERY Merry Christmas!
