I have been wanting to make a Elf style Christmas Stocking, ever since I found this pattern way back in the summer. I have been on the lookout for some suitable fabric ever since and whilst I was browsing in Ikea this week, I came across a cheap red fleece blanket and had a flash of inspiration.
Using the pattern I cut out the stocking and hand embroidered on the felt hearts with silver thread for decoration , but instead of making the cuff with the points, I used the decorative edge on the blanket. I stuffed the toe as per the directions and added a silver bell.
I think it turned out rather well... I've decided this is my Christmas Stocking and I have hung it up in the hope Santa will pop something nice inside it for me on Christmas Day!
