{Homemade Stockings}

 Christmas is in a week!
I hate how fast this month seems to go by.
Especially since SSG has been on leave.
It makes me sad he will have to go back to work.
Such is life though!

If You didn't know I bought a sewing machine last November, (a year ago) with no idea how to use it.
I just told myself I was going to learn how to sew.
It is something I have always wanted to do.
With a little MUCH help from my friend Thais.
I can proudly say, yes I can sew.
Not like fancy dresses or anything. 
I am not that talented.
I can however make my very own homemade stockings.
 It is pretty nice that I have matching ones now.
REALLY nice that they are not dollar store crappy ones too.
Stockings are terribly expensive to me.
I used freezer paper stencils to put the names on.
Have you ever done it?
If not and want to learn I will be happy to post a tutorial on it.
It is really easy!
I cannot wait to fill these stockings!

Glad you're back! These turned out really well - I love matching :) I'd like to see the tutorial, too - but don't rush to post it on my account - I have about 5,302 things to get done in the next 5 days.
