I started stockings for my little family before Christmas last year. I gave it a valiant effort, but let's just say I am a less than perfect seamstress, and by that I mean I'm terrible. Just when I thought I had finished the last one, I realized that I had done some embarrassingly bad measuring and it was about 5 inches longer than the other two. I'm still trying to figure out how that happened. I thought about keeping it that way and using it for myself, after all I made them, so I should get the biggest stocking right?! Instead I decided to do the responsible thing and fix it. But I was so frustrated that I put them away, and of course it took me the entire year to fix it. But a couple days ago I got them back out and got them done! They are far from perfect, but I just say they are full of character :) These are the stockings that I used as inspiration.
And here is my version.
