With every new baby comes a new Christmas stocking. In keeping with my current theme/obsession, I wanted a very sweet owl-y/wintery stocking for my little guy. When I couldn't find one anywhere (imagine that), I had to take matters into my own hands.
I bought the new, already (name) embroidered, velvet Pottery Barn stocking off of ebay, and then commissioned the wool needle felted owls and hats from a lovely etsy crafter. My only contribution was adding buttons to the hats, and holly berries, and whip-stitching the whole thing together. I'm not very good at hand stitching, but it was the least I could do. I'm happy with it! I'm sure I'll have to get Jack a more boyish stocking down the road, but I like this for now. I am however, hatching a plan that involves a tiny brush and fabric paint......his name would look so much better in red or green.
