Patchwork Christmas Stocking
The stocking is lined with an unbleached calico - I thought that I could embroider a name on the strip at the top to personalise it. The back of the stocking is more of the tartan fabric as I had a larger piece of this one.
The patchwork is a little wonky in places, but this just adds to the handmade charm (keep saying it enough and it might be true!).
I went down to the really inappropriately named Nylon Shop today - they sell loads of fabric, it's a complete Aladdin's cave type place, cluttered but lovely. And it's within 15 minutes walk of my house. Much of what they sell is not nylon, so why the name I don't know... I found some more of the red/green tartan plus a small green/gold holly print and a red cotton with snowflakes and baubles. I am however very much coveting the one of the Scandi-style Christmas bundles from Fabric Rehab.
