The promised 35 Christmas stockings for youth in custody are complete!
They were all made using my Simple Speedy Stocking Tutorial (see TUTORIALS tab above). They went together quickly, but I could not have done it without the reliable aid of Daughter, who at age 11 can really make a machine hum.
I cut. She assembled the inner and outer layers and hanger. I turned, ironed, finished and trimmed. Somewhere along the way I mentioned that next year I really needed to start sooner. “Oh, no, Mom, don’t do that!” “Why not? I don’t like this pressure.” “Because then you might not need my help!” That made me smile 🙂
She really is a helpful child, but her help was motivated in this case by wanting me to get to work on her winter dress. She wants it finished for her band concert. Tuesday. Yep, tomorrow. Talk about pressure!
