Sweet Little Stockings

Hello and Welcome. I hope this day finds you well.

I've continued making Christmas ornaments - here are some little stockings that might be useful in 111 days time...

I've used Sizzix die 'Stocking Stuffer' with cotton batting and felt (stuffed with a little wadding). Added oodles of lace, trim, ribbon, charms and lashings of sparkly bling. And, those bells on the toes really do jingle!

If you like these you might like to check out my other ornaments. Mittens are here, elf shoes here and angel here.

There should be lots of ornaments for gifts this year!

As always, very many thanks for visiting and any comments you might leave are hugely appreciated.
