Sew & Tell Amy Butler Challenge - Mini Stockings (Topography)



This blog challenge was perfect timing as I have been developing Mini Stockings for this Christmas. They are my own design - big enough to applique on, small enough to hang on a Christmas tree. There is a pocket between the coloured and the white layers so they can actually work as stockings (for tiny gifts!) as well as tree ornaments. There is some soft wadding inside to hold their shape.

The Amy Butler fabrics I had on hand were the Full Moon Polka Dot in Slate (from the Lotus Collection, and my most requested fabric for Baby Alphabet Shirts) and Martini in Blush (Midwest Modern). Aimee very kindly gave me some scraps of Polka Dot in Cherry which I think has come out really well on plain red.

Each stocking is approx 17cm from where the ribbon is attached, to the toe.

I can't wait to see what everyone else has come up with at www.amylouwho.com, there are so many amazing Amy Butler fabrics to choose from!
