My first ever Christmas Stocking!!! My friend Connie makes Christmas stockings for the office every year and her patchwork stockings were my inspiration. She gave me a stocking that she was working on so that I could use it as a pattern. There is a little story behind that.......she got very upset with a guy in her office and she told me he wasn't getting a stocking this year and then she gave it to me. I told her I would bring it back after I made a template, but she said no, he wasn't getting one this year!!! He really ticked her off....LOL!! She told me to go ahead and finish sewing it together and to give it away. I think she will change her mind, so I'm keeping it just in case.I love these jewel tone fabrics. I started making a quilt using these fabrics almost 3 years ago and never finished the quilt. The back of the stocking (pic on the right) is actually part of the quilt. I just placed the template on the unfinished quilt and cut it out. There goes my quilt....LOL!!!!
