I didn’t have a lot of time to sew this week because we spent more time over at the garden than we’d originally planned. (I hope to have a garden update ready to post over the weekend.)
But I did get some sewing in last night and can happily check another item off my 2015 Finish Along Q2 Goals list.
This little zippered pouch Christmas stocking turned out even cuter than I had pictured in my mind.
I got the basic idea for it from here, but needed to create a stocking pattern big enough to fit the Bluework snowman embroidery. The stocking finishes at approximately 8.5″ tall by 6.5″ wide.
Two silver jingle bells attached with cording braided from the same embroidery floss I used for the snowman make a sweet, musical zipper pull. This can now go into the gift box ready to fill if I need a last minute gift come Christmas time.
I have four more of the small embroideries that I’m hoping to turn into something before the end of the month so I don’t have to roll them over into my 2015 Finish Along Q3 Goals. Can you believe we’re almost half way through the year?!!
Edited to add: The pattern for the snowman is a free pattern offered by Stitching Cow and is available here.
