Finally! The Perfect Stocking Fabrics!!

Remember THIS? I have been in the hunt for the perfect fabrics ever since. I've looked online. I've looked at our local quilt stores. I've looked at JoAnn's!! No luck.

So I went to a far off quilt store and finally found what I was hoping for. Here it is folks. Feel free to totally hack these. I think they are perfect!

From Top to bottom the winners are:

Moda's Fruitcake by BasicGrey
Red Rooster Fabrics Mandalay
Unknown Red with White Polka Dots
Moda's Making New Friends by Deb Strain
Moda's Fruitcake by BasicGrey
Moda's Fruitcake by BasicGrey
Moda's Fruitcake by BasicGrey

And here they are again. They are going to be great if I manage to finish before Christmas.

With any luck, I'll even get a tutorial for all you crazy crafters out there who would rather spend 12 hours making heirloom stockings then spending a fortune to have it done for you. For me, it's worth it. I like the quality of the things I make. And my kids will be able to use them for years and know that every cut and stitch was done with them in mind.

I'll post them when they are finished. Cant' wait!
