Christmas Craft Challenge - Day 20

I really enjoyed today's craft. It was nice and relaxing, simple and easy to do. I did have to draft some paper patterns for the Christmas Stockings, but that wasn't too big a deal, though I will probably look to make a template for future use as I can see me making one of these for every person in the family.

It is all hand sewn so would be easy enough for the kids to do as long as they can sew a running stitch though they may need a little assistance with some of it.

As usual I have deviated from the project sheet as per the instructions in Cards & Crafts for Christmas - Edition 1, though only as far as colours and decorations. They added buttons onto the strip around the top, I'm probably going to add names, though I just need to decide who gets what (hence no names at this stage).

Supa cute - sorry am behind BIG TIME on the challenge - as you maybe aware I have cracked the screen of my laptop and therefore I have been offline for 3-4 days now. I have finally got the DH to put the internet back on Baileys notebook - so I will be using this until he goes back to school or I have purchased a new laptop. But anyway - I hope to have a few challenges up later today.
