Well, I started my blog, and then I kind of didn't post... Oops. I really have no excuses, other than I felt disorganized about it and didn't want to just post randomly. I like organization, and knowing what I am going to write about each day... Yeah, still not organized. But I didn't want to keep neglecting the blog any further! So here I am. With a recent DIY!
Yesterday, I made my own homemade Christmas stockings! This is my first Christmas with my boyfriend, Jasin, (our anniversary is the day after Christmas!!) so I wanted to do something special... I settled on homemade Christmas stockings. After all, they can be something we can continue to use each year! They were super simple and I found the idea from this blog: The Pless Press
This is how they turned out:
I made three. One for Jasin, one for my dog, Buffy, and one for me. If you look closely, there are silver pins on each stocking with our initials, J, B, & L. :) It really only took me 2 hours to finish all three of them, and I am seriously on a sewing kick now!
PS: If you are wondering what kind of hallway table that is - Jasin and I actually made it, and the bottom part doubles as a home for Buffy! She is crate trained, and sleeps in there when I am not home :) Unfortunately, Buffy has been staying at my parents' house for the past two months, and I wont be getting her back until early January when I visit my parents again. Still, she deserved a stocking, too.
Question: Do you like to make your own holiday crafts? What has been your favorite?
