#8. Make Christmas Stockings: Abby's

I finally came up with an idea for Abby's stocking.  I had an image in my head, but couldn't decide how it would actually turn out.  Landon told me to just go with it and see what happened.  So I did.  And I think it turned out just the way I wanted it.

This picture isn't the best, but it gives you the basic idea.  I promise the toe and cuff look better in person. 

My original plan was to put her name on the cuff, but now I can't decide.  What do you think?  And if I do it, how should I do it? 

I'm not sure what I'll do, but for now I am calling it good.  I need to get going on Landon's and my other projects.  I'm so glad I can cross this off my list and do it with something I am proud of.

Abby's A

Here is one of my homemade Christmas presents.  It is for my baby girl, so I figured I could share it on here.  These types of projects are nothing new, but it was my first time making one.  I used pinking shears to cut the letter out so that I wouldn't have to cut the paper to fit exactly on the letter.  I think it looks cute that way, and seemed a lot easier in my mind.  I plan to hang it in her room with red ribbon.  It was only a few dollars and makes a great gift.
