Stockings on a grey afternoon

Thought it was about time that our two had some handmade 
Christmas stockings, instead of the polyester ones bought years ago!

This one is made from a retro purple and orange vintage fabric.
(picks taken on a very dark grey day!)

They both have granny square pockets on the front.

Beaded lace from the vintage wedding dress trims.

Oop! Someone is trying to have a sneak peak inside already!
The pattern I drew out turned out looking like the dolls legs sort of!

You're a meanie not making me one too. :P

Punk & the wee boy have handmade stockings but they're pretty dodgey as I whipped them up in a hurry last xmas!

Those are some of the prettiest stockings I've seen. Love the bits of wedding dress and granny square pockets. They will be a joy to peek into come the big day!
