We have previously documented my love for the StudioCherie Burlap Stocking pattern (minus the burlap). Well, I'm at it again.
First up, monogrammed stockings for a wedding gift: I don't know the couple's tastes and preferences, so I didn't want to use novelty fabric. Instead, I went more classic. She has always liked more of a bright blue or turquoise, and he is a soldier, so I chose a darker blue. Both colors are remnants from my last set of stockings, and the red print used for the piping was also a remnant from the last set. All I had to buy to make these were the linen blend and the muslin lining.
While I was getting my sewing mojo back, I decided to throw in a stocking for my buddy. She's into martial arts, and I had made her a scrub shirt for her birthday, using fabric I found on eBay. I still had plenty of remnants left, so I used that print for the cuffs and back of the stocking. The red print used for the piping on the above stockings is the one used for the front here. I found a black print in stash which became the piping, and I bought another black print for the monogram. Here's hoping she loves it!
And the back....
