And the Stockings Were Hung

Jason and lil' CJO needed new Christmas stockings.

I found this great fabric in Utah (center of the universe for all things crafty) and whipped up these beauties.

It took me a while to figure out how I was going to do the names - I didn't think stitching them across the top would work because of the multi-colors in the fabric. Finally inspiration hit and I knew I wanted to use just a single big initial. I found these great chipboard stickers last night. I mounted them on light cardboard and hung them with wire rings. The single initial makes them look modern even though the fabric has a vintage feel.

Hope Santa approves!
