making xmas stockings


Mince pie season has commenced! ...and also, it's that time of the year when my brain turns into that of a five year old, I get so excited about xmas! This year I have mainly been making things for our shop, so I probably won't be making xmas pressies for everyone like last year.
Nether the less, I have really enjoyed making stamps and printing fabric and making candles AND cards for the shop too! I thought it would be nice to make a batch of stockings out of the same linen that I used to make the pouches.


I made some slightly different designs, and our tot chose this one for her, trees with white and gold snow ( I used fabric ink and fabric paint).


We decided it would be nice for the forthcoming baby to have a stocking too, as our tot already treats it like one of the family already. I put a temporary label on this one so I can stamp on a name next year! I'm hoping Santa will fill it with useful things like a natural baby sponge, wooden teether, bibs, hairbrush, pyjamas, bottle etc...(I may have already organised this ; )

I lined them with some spotty cotton that I have had for a while.

At our RUST shop, we have some new shelves that I painted and my mister put up, to house the cards I have been making...



These ones have vintage pictures on them with gold glitter.

...and some stockings for the shop too. Not sure if any will sell, but they look nice and xmassy in the shop!



I will be focusing my attention on our very neglected house soon, as I have got lots of decorating ideas for this year!
