It all started with the stocking my mom made me.
I made my husband (at the time my boyfriend) a stocking out of some prefab wool felt (it's the one on the left with the white top). I made Loki's stocking out of a wool sweater I felted ( I was just getting into the whole recycled wool felt thing)
I did a bit of embrodery (badly, so no photo)
I even added a tiny snowman to my husband's
(cute so there is a photo)
Stockings hung with care!
But wait, we need one more. I ran out to the thrift store to get a red wool sweater to felt. This is where the "disaster" begins. They didn't have any. They only acrylic blends, which will not felt. Ugh, I settled on a nice one with a cable. I traced my pattern and sewed it up.
Then I went to hang it and it faces the opposite way. DISASTER! I know it's really not and in fact have found a solution. I was going to just use the plain non-cabled side, but then discovered that Loki's could face any direction (his just has a few Christmas pins in it that are easy to move).
All is well
Well? Kinda, I just don't have the energy to make another so I will just have to get used to it. I think it's going to drive me crazy but I really think it's more important that the stocking is nice looking rather than face a certain direction.
