QT Christmas Stocking, napkins and hot pads

I'm back with pictures. I had to hurry and run to the store with my daughter and I wanted to get these posted before I left. After I did that, I decided that I didn't like the color. I am still working on my picture taking skills.

Today is picture day. I have 5 more Christmas Stockings to share with you, plus a few of my favorite things at the end......enjoy:

These Stockings have been sooooo much fun to make, am going to have to make more! I already have 3 more cut out....

I have learned that you don't start a project unless you plan on finishing it. I had made stockings for my children when they were young. As they got married I ask the spouse if they were happy with their own Christmas stocking or if they wanted new ones. Then when the little ones came along, I made Christmas stockings for each of them and gave them a dated Christmas ordainment for their first Christmas. As the years past, I felt like I needed to put labels in each one, so I asked for them all back. The in-laws decided they wanted one now, Some had gotten destroyed, some I was not every happy with, so this year I made new ones, dated all of them and have plans on making extra's for the surprises in life.

I have made and remade 12 this last year and made a total of 34 with the remakes. Plus I wanted about 6 in storage. It's great having a larger family, life is more fun, but just be careful of what you start.

I had this vintage napkin holder and thought that it would be a fun way to show off my vintage hankies:
My love for vintage hot pads have gone wild. With the new inspiration from Pinterest, I can see them daily:

I hope you enjoy this post and have a very Merry Christmas!


  1. Oh, I have some of these potholders and the vintage hankies. I love the napkin holder. I think after Christmas, I need to make all new stockings for the family. Are the materials from something vintage? Thanks for sharing.

  2. The only ones that are old vintage are the quilting stockings. The first one in this post and the little twins stockings that were posted earlier. Some have chenille and could use vintage, but I used new fabric. Thanks for asking and have a Merry Christmas and Happy stocking making.

  3. I like the vintage hankies holder.

  4. Lovely stockings! You have been busy!

    Happy Christmas!! xx

  5. These really are gorgeous stockings and I love them all! Such a fun way to display your hankies too. ;D
