Stocking inspiration week...3 and Blogtoberfest Day 2

Whoops. It's actually meant to be week 4 but the last week has been a little hectic and all sorts of things just went out the window. Oh well, must press on.

This week I have come across a few sewing patterns for Christmas stock
ings. There are quite a few out there on the internets! First up, this very elegant stocking in all white from Martha Stewart using up a handkerchief as a cuff. I guess if you wanted you wouldn't have to use an all white one, but it does make it so very classic.

Found here.

Then I came across these very interesting stockings (again, Martha Stewart) using felt and punching tools. Very nice.

Found here.

There is also this strip quilted one. I think they could have used better pictures, but it really has the potential to be a very nice stocking. And a great way to use up all y
our Christmassy fabric scraps. I think I'll be making one of these ones for myself.

Found here.

Hope you enjoy those links!

Hi. I just found you and your beautiful blog through my gorgeous friend Melissa from Miss Sew & So. I LOVE this post! I have made some stockings for our family this week that are very similar to the first pic you have, only I used white vintage hankies for the cuffs and natural linen for the stockings. I am so looking forward to reading all your previous posts. Wishing you a lovely weekend ~ Tina

I haven´t started on my stocking yet. Not because I´m lazy but I just can´t decide which pattern to much inspiration out there!
