A Baby Stocking!





I love participating in Papertrey's Blog Hop; it really gets me to thinking about things! The challenge this month was to create a Christmas project. I have been thinking about the new baby, since he will be born about 2 weeks after Christmas, I think he needs a stocking! I can't knit it yet, since he doesn't have a name, and the name comes first... so here's an idea I had!!
I bought a stocking, and just decorated it with 'BABY' 'BABY' 'BABY' all over it! The other children will not mistake who this stocking is for! I've got to learn to do these things way ahead of time and get them done, then photograph in daylight- but life has been way crazy lately!


The little stockings are Stocking Prints stamped on Bitty Dots Spring Moss and Pure Poppy. The background piece is a dot image from Vintage Labels stamped on Ripe Avocado, then cut out with the coordinating Nestability. There are tiny bells on the tops of the stockings, but they seem to have flipped around in the photos, so are hard to see. The little tags are held on with tiny diaper pins- I had to color the tops with a #4 Prisma marker to match Pure Poppy! Lastly, different twills were knotted on the pins. I only did 6 tags, but may make some more and to some more with different ribbons to finish this project off!
Now you may know the DD broke her ankle (badly) 2 weeks ago coming off of her horse. See the little horsie at the top? Our new little boy will be getting lots of horsie things at his shower, lol!!
