I should stock up on stockings.



Every year I make stockings. I remember the fun of pulling out the same red felt glittered stocking every year, growing up. The familiarity of it was part of Christmas. I'm afraid I have robbed that joy from my own kids because I just can't help myself. Stockings are just so easy to make, and because of my sewing business, and fabric collecting habit, I always have lots of great stocking worthy materials around.

I always frantically sew up some for various Holiday Home Tours, or for Colleen's shop. ( If you check out her blog and go back a post or two, you can see some I made this year) But I didn't get any finished in time to put them in my etsy shop. I just can't seem to get in the stocking making mood early enough for that. I should sew some up right after Christmas and put them in a box, to be unpacked and ready nice and early next year.




It might even be fun to predict what trends will be in force by this time next year and see how close I came to getting it right. The challenge would be in making them work if I get it wrong.
