The holidays are here. I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving. We had a wonderful time with family, ate a lot, shopped a little and generally enjoyed the restful weekend. We even had time to get out the Christmas decorations.
When we moved this fall, we decided to leave our nine foot Christmas tree with the new buyers. The house had a twenty foot ceiling in the living room and our new house only has eight foot ceilings. So, we needed a new tree. The girls convinced us that we needed to get a real tree this year, so that’s what we did. We loaded up the family and trekked over to the nearest Lowes and picked out a bargain. Not very romantic, but it’s a great tree. It’s covered in store bought and hand made ornaments. The tree skirt was made by my grandma and the stockings were made for us by my mom. Holidays and hand made seem to go together, don’t they? I have something for you to help make your holidays hand made.
The Dotty Stocking by Schoolhouse Patterns. I wrote it for and published it previously under my former name, Pattern Patti. But, here it is edited and restyled for you.
The stocking is lined and has a cuff that folds down. It also has a pattern and instructions for appliqued circles.
You can find the PDF here.
I would love to see pictures of the stockings that you make. Feel free to post on the Schoolhouse Patterns facebook page.
