Christmas Stockings

See - I can still sew! These are my Christmas cards, I started them months ago with every intention of finishing them nice and early. Best laid plans .... they were finally finished last Sunday.

I wanted to take some good pictures before I wrote out the cards but the light has been terrible lately. I've made more than I can send so I'm going to turn some of them into a garland for my above my mantelpiece so hopefully will get a better piture then. They are made in the same way as fabric postcards - just in a different shape (you can click the picture for a closer look). Very fun to make - especially if, like me, you have lots of ribbons to hand.

A great way to use up those Christmassy scraps that seem to accrue at this time of year :-)

Nice to see you blogging again.

Your Christmas cards are lovely! I have a little stocking project in the works with left-over bits of knit fabrics. It was one I was going to finish this year but not going to happen so it will go on the list for next year!! I am going to make them and use them in a garland on my stair railing and then fill the stockings with teddy bears! :-)

What a great idea! That will make a great garland. I have some of these little ones too, and thought it would be fun to make more.

The Christmas cards are lovely. How do they display themselves? I made postcards, which were received very happily but bemusedly by their recipients. People struggled to open them (naturally) then didn't seem to know what to do with them (lean them against something of course!)

Happy New Year Fiona, and here's to more quilting time for you in 2009!
