diy stockings!

my favorite time of the year is finally here!! the holiday season! since aric & i are living together now, i thought us and the dogs needed brand new stockings. of course, i didn't want to buy them, so i decided i would make them! and i needed momma t and her fantastic sewing skills to do this!

we found a stocking pattern on marthastewart.com and used that for aric & i's. then we used the same pattern, but made it a bit smaller for finley + kaia's stockings!

voila! 2 stockings ready for the machine! (ps - i chose a red houndstooth fabric for the sock to make it feel more vintage. you will have to see the finished stocking to see the trim fabric!)
