Christmas stockings~

Well, I finally finished this years Christmas stockings. I used a white embossed coverlet for the main fabric and I went with a pink insert for the inside of the stockings. I really love how they turned out! Simple, clean & shabby-ish~ I picked up these pearl letters at Michaels for $1 each. They have them every year in the dollar section. Of course, I can never just leave anything alone for long-- I may add a cuff to them~ maybe next year instead of making new stockings, I'll add the cuff! But for now, I've hot glued roses onto hair clippies covered with ribbon for a little soft touch above each letter. I think I'll make a bunch of little stockings to pass out to friends as well!
