It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas!

Here are the stockings I made for Mollie, Stu, and I. They were really easy and I love the way they turned out! The pieces were cut from a pattern but you could do this without a pattern too. Here's one tutorial I've seen for a stocking.
Here is the fabric upclose. I really like both of them. You can't really tell from the pictures but the cream fabric on the cuff is shimmery gold. The gold on both fabrics is shimmery too!
These are some ornaments I made for an ornament exchange at MOPS. I saw the "joy" one in the Stampin' Up catalog, recreated it with cardboard, modpodge, patterned paper, and wire. I thought it was so cute that I should make a set of 3.
Reading Christmas stories with Pappy...
Mollie has one present under the tree so far, and she loves to hold it and play with the ribbon.


  1. Caitlin,
    The stockings and ornaments are so lovely. Thanks for posting them. I enjoy seeing all the things you make.

    The pictures of Mollie and Pappy are the most precious ever!!

    Love Y'all

  2. Cute Stockings and ornaments. Good job Caitlin. Why do Mollie and your dad look super-imposed on the couch? Were they actually laying in a meadow and then you cut them out and placed them on the couch?
