Traditionally, the baby doesn't get a real stocking it's first Christmas at our house. Why? Because I just had a baby (!) and I have other things to stress about. :)

So, I finally made Kate her stocking this year. I crazy quilt pieced it on a green foundation and it went together really fast. I have an older Bernina 801 (love it!) that has seven different stitches. I haven't missed having more stitches until this project, but I used what stitches I did have to stitch over a few of the seams.

Everyone loves it - and following tradition, one of the girls decided that she "hates" her stocking and wants this one instead. I think we need some new Christmas traditions. :)


  1. So cute! I'm hoping to make stockings for my family this year because I don't have the excuse of a new baby this year! Hope you are having a great weekend!

  2. Oh it's so cute! And that reminds me that I need to get on with making my 10 month old her first stocking...I have the fabric, just need to cut it out and sew it up. Fun!
