Stylin' Stocking: Modern, Eclectic Stocking Fun!

I've been thinking about these funky stockings for a while and I finally put one together yesterday.  I think I'm going to call them Stylin' Stockings, but I'm still playing with it. 


The fabrics are from the AMAZING Heirloom fabrics from Joel Dewberry and they are so much fun to work with!

The cuff is ruffled and the inside is fully lined.  Just imagine the fun you could have with these for the holidays!  Or even for a birthday stocking!  I love that idea!

I'm hoping to tweak a few things and try out a few things then get this baby into a pattern.  Funky fun!

Just found you through Life made lovely Monday - your stockings are really brilliant. It's that time of year when I NEED to get started on Christmas cards and any homemade Christmas gifts or the months will just disappear before my eyes... looks like you're well prepared!
