Greetings to you all!
Yesterday was spent trying to 'perfect' the Christmas stocking. By that, I'm referring to the actual stocking. I figured out how to keep the top seam from puckering and now have two sizes. I'll show the two in just a bit.
Your comments are all VERY useful. I see that I'm going to have to do a series of stockings. I think you all are right...(if there is a right and wrong to this). I've not...well, let me show you.
Below are the two smaller stockings with the tatting on the very top and one with it hanging from the 'flipped out' edge.
Both are pleasing on some level.
The snowflake is not a 'must have'. It's another possibility.
Now, here is the third, larger stocking. I'm actually really pleased with the outcome of the stocking. One little change for the future...I'll shorted the 'flipped out' satin lining by 1/2 inch.
The angle of the photo is a bit odd...making the toe look a bit wonky. None to worry, I don't think it looks that way in person.
So, as you see, I'm on my way and have my very own projects for future gifting.
Have a great day!!
