We aren’t getting into a whole heap of Christmas decorating this year, the little fella is too young to notice and the budget is too tight for frippery. However, I did make the little fella his very own special, striped, Santa stocking.
After visiting the annual craft fair in Brisbane, I picked up some very cute and inexpensive, Christmas themed fat quarters from which I have made this Santa stocking and plan to make a Christmas tablecloth and matching napkins (ok, so maybe a little frippery). Anyway, once made, these things last for years and set the scene for a little Christmas festivity.
It’s been a while since I posted a tutorial, but I’m trying a new format as this tut is picture heavy and it’s nice to be able to download a tutorial and work offline. Hope you enjoy.
