With this group I was teaching to sew, they wanted to make Christmas stockings. I found a cute pattern, a little vintage and country but fairly basic. However the directions were not well-written and all of us made a few mistakes with the cuff. I think my stocking turned out rather cute and I enjoyed seeing the other choices of materials from the class.
The group had fun with the project and it was a good experience, however I have come to the conclusion that I would not want to make a Christmas stocking again. Mainly because I already have a set of Christmas stockings that I love. What I really want to make is tree skirt because the standard tree skirts are too small for my tree. It's just a matter of finding the material I like that will match my stockings. The design is my secret . . .
