I know it is a little early for a holiday inspired post, but I just finished a project I wanted to share.
Now that I have my complete family of four, I wanted us all to have matching, monogrammed Christmas stockings. I bought four stockings last year on my second favorite shopping day – the day after Christmas (closely behind Black Friday) at fifty percent off from Target.
The nice this about buying them at the end of December was that it gave me a full year to get the monogramming done. And I’m happy to report that 10 months later I finally got around to finishing them.
To make the monograms I bought cheap 25 cent pieces of felt at Hobby Lobby, some white string with and needles with big eyes to thread the thicker white string through. First I drew the letters on lined paper, which helped ensure they were all the same height, and then used that as a pattern to cut the felt letters. Then I just used a simple stitch to attach the letter. Voila, monogrammed stockings!
Now to start the process of buying things to fill them…
