a little quilting, reading, and an occasional cookie
Tuesday, December 3, 2013
Saturday I was walking around our little downtown checking out some sights. I happened to notice one of the stores decorated the window with oil cloth stockings. They were stapled together. I went in and bought two pieces for a stocking for my daughter-in-law and son-in-law. Poor things they've gone ten whole years without a homemade stocking at our house. They've had to make do with a store bought one that doesn't hold much. But this idea intrigued me.
The red piece design had two border prints and a middle poinsettia. I cut the stocking centering the two borders.
Then cut son-in-law's. This black check looks masculine, right? Not Christmas-y?
Well, I used the middle poinsettia from the red stocking to festive it up a little.
I added a little eyelet for a cuff and it feminized this one a little.
Easy project, took just a couple of hours and the oilcloth was so very easy to work with!
