Okay, I know stockings come in all shapes and sizes but usually not a HIGH HEEL BOOT...he he...is this the cutest thing you have ever seen, or what?...I wonder if my girls have stumbled across theirs yet this year...
Everyone loved these "stockings"....I even had several requests for them...in all I made about 10....several large ones like this and a few "smaller" 7 inch ones for the girls at work...(I simply used my copier at work to downsize the pattern)...of course I filled them with candy and small trinkets...I had the most fun making these and it was really easy...
If you would like to make your own...you will need:
1/2 yard red felt
1/4 yard zebra stripe fleece
1 high heel boot pattern (I made my own from a brown paper bag)
(depending on the size of your pattern and if you lay it on your fabric just right you should be able to get two complete stockings out of this amount of fabric)
I pinned the pattern onto the felt which had been folded in half lengthwise and cut it out...this gives you the front and back of one stocking...sew this together on the outer edge leaving the top open....cut a "cuff" out of the fleece and sew in place...turn the stocking right side out...VIOLA....one high-heeled stocking!!!
Now I just gotta figure out what to do for my girls this year...any ideas?
Don't forget about the Holiday Blog Parties going on in the next few weeks...stop by each of these fabulous blogs and check things out...
I will be joining some of these and several other parties (check my sidebar for a listing)...COME MINGLE!!!
