My family and I finally own a home! It even has a gorgeous fireplace. What a perfect setting for Christmas decorations and stockings, right? Well, maybe. One of my roommates is a toddler and I can visualize just how curious he would become if I were to dangle colorful little stockings, filled with candy and secret surprises, above his head. But as a seamstress, this is something I've been looking forward to doing - making stockings for my family that we can use for years and years to come. So what's a girl to do?
Naturally, I took the idea of the traditional stocking and put a modern, Jordsen twist on it.
Things I took into consideration while designing the Santa Stockings::
I'm currently planning on tying the bags with ribbon to keep any curious little stinkers from peeking inside, but I've also added ribbon loops so we will have the option of hanging them by the fireplace if we wish.
I'm so pleased with how these turned out! It is exciting to begin creating these unique Christmas traditions and experiences with my family.
