Peppermint Christmas

I am just getting starting on Christmas decorating at home. I know I want to do everything in a peppermint theme. So far, we've put up one tree with red and clear blinking lights - no decorations on it yet though.
And I made these stockings this week. I used white glittered felt bought at Hobby Lobby with a 40% off coupon. The red felt is from tree skirts we found last year at Target 90% off - I think they were about 50 cents each.
Felt is really easy to sew with, no seams to finish. I drew the pattern out free-hand on 2 sheets of paper taped together. I used a McCalls pattern
as my guide but I simplified it quite a bit.

My kids think the stockings are the most important part of our Christmas traditions. I sure wish Santa really would come fill them now!

  7. I love your stockings. I made my own this year as well. It is my Christmas gift to all of my children as I am now an empty nester. I miss them all so much everyday! I can't wait to start on a project for next year, any ideas on what can be made by hand and given to guys and girls.?
