Christmas Miracle

Ok, so it's not the warm and fuzzy sort of miracle that gives you chills...but it's pretty miraculous considering.
This was last years sad attempt at making a stocking for Ry.

The two normal looking stocking were ones we bought when we first got married. When I broke out the pathetic little one to hang up this year, Kevin laughed and said he didn't think we could even fit a present in there.

So with a little planning before actually cutting and sewing I was able to make two new stockings that at least won't cause Kev to bust up every time he looks at them. Now if only I had planned a little more when picking out the different colors of fabric all the stocking could have matched (Kev says the yellow one looks like it came straight from the 70s).

I think they are adorable! I am so impressed with anyone that has the guts to try to do something like that. Keep that one from last year forever...it will go down as a great memory for sure.

You did a great job Stef! What an improvement. Stocking are very overwhelming and I only attempted mine under the close supervision of my mom. You are brave to do it on your own and look how cute they turned out. Don't forget to pack them when you come to Idaho.

I am way impressed! I have been trying to match the stockings I had for Rob and I and I can't find one for Taylor. I was trying to decide if I should attempt making one too. I love how yours turned out though!

They look great! I couldn't tell which ones where the storebought and which ones you made! I'll admit, they look a bit better then the last year model!

Great job Stef! And don't worry, Kev will make fun of them no matter how cute they turn out! That's what hubbys are for!
