xmas stocking from a Tone Finnanger pattern
I made this stocking for a work colleague for no other reason than we started talking about xmas and she mentioned wanting to get a stocking for her very first grandchild. Well! I jumped right in and offered to make her one. Also her grandson is gorgeous! Chubby cheeks! I love chubby cheeks!
Most of the fabric came from my stash except the lining. All cotton type fabrics were used and I used thin fleece for the interfacing (turned out a bit bulky). I would leave out the interfacing next time and see how it goes.
All the patterns I have come across from this talented lady are very easy to do. AND the best bit is I haven't come across any errors in the patterns or instructions yet. It makes me really confident of success when starting her patterns and therefore a good sewing session is guaranteed! How many people have come across a project in a book or wherever and half way through it just makes no sense? You are left wondering if something was left out of the instructions and you end up having a disappointing sewing day.
A big thank you to all pattern makers who proof read their books before publishing!
