A few years ago, I made stockings for my little family. This one is mine.
It was made from my Betsey Johnson-circa 2000, graduation dress.
This cutesy one is my daughter’s. I tried to persuade her to choose a pattern that would be more complementary with Betsey but failed.
“I want sprinkles!” she sternly said with her little arms wrapped tightly around her chest.
Sprinkles it was.
A Christmas Story, is and forever will be, my fave. My husband shares this sentiment, so naturally I made a sexy leg for him. I must say that I was a novice at sewing when I made the stockings. But I managed to make them sans pattern. Have I not told you that I love a challenge!? One thing though, don’t look at the insides. It is not pretty.
And the big present that year was a real size leg lamp ,of course! I knew that we would all enjoy it year after year and it has become a very special tradition for us. My husband still says it is the best present that he has ever gotten.
And I just now realized that I have a little man who is in need of a stocking. Eek! I have to take the dust off my machine! The last time I used it was when I went into labor.
So how about you? What are your favorite Christmas traditions?
