This past Christmas was kind of a wash for my little family. Between 6 month old Bitly and 2 #MonsterKittens that just won’t leave stuff alone, we decided to skip the decorating thing. Talk about a bummer! I’d been planning on making us new stockings too! But no decorating meant nowhere to hang any stockings! I am determined to find some sort of pet friendly, happy decorating medium this holiday season, and that means stockings too! So I took this Christmas in July opportunity to make some fun, new, Quilt-As-You-Go Christmas Stockings!
I’ve been working on a couple of fun Christmas projects that created a surprising amount of scraps… so scrappy stockings it was! I used the same quilt-as-you-go scrappy technique in my quilt-as-you-go scrappy coasters earlier this summer.
Imagine Gnats has a great tutorial for quilt-as-you-go Christmas Stockings and I used that as the basis of my stockings as well as her free printable pattern for the shape.
It definitely saved me time and hassle… I really didn’t know how big to make my stockings and didn’t really want to experiment with the size and shape.
If you’re interested in making your own quilt-as-you-go Christmas stockings, I highly recommend Imagine Gnats tutorial! These turned out great and I can’t wait to put them to good use in a couple months!
