his and hers christmas stockings

Husband Guy and I have had the same Christmas stockings since before we were married.  I think I purchased them one year on impulse from a $2 shop and the quality is definately reflected.  They have been steadily falling apart for the last few years so I finally decided enough was enough and new stockings were required.  Husband Guy is more 'ho hum' than 'ho ho ho' when it comes to Christmas however I was determined to make him a nice 'boyish' stocking.

I pre-warned him that lots of oohhing and ahhhing was required because I was pretty chuffed with the results.

 I picked a few of the blue themed fabrics from my Christmas stash plus a couple that I thought he'd like.

For my stocking I used some of the gorgeous Moda Christmas fabrics I've been loving this year.

I'm really pleased with the results and can't wait to finish dressing our lounge this weekend and hanging up all the lovely things I've managed to make.

Finally here are a few shots of my little Guy wearing the cute Christmas shirt my Aunty made for him before she jetted off overseas.  He wore it today to have his photo taken with Santa(s) and had lots of nice comments on it.
