Festive Market Recap!

It was indeed a festive evening at our annual Festive Market!  There was something for everyone and every price range, with lots of stocking stuffers and gifts.  From jewelry to handmade knits, pottery to cat toys, and pillowcase kits to pocket tissue holders, our vendors had everything needed to help shoppers finish their Christmas gift lists.   Participants were treated to a buffet of Christmas goodies, and it was a lovely, if cold, evening.

Getting Ready for Christmas

This time of year, it is always fun to find small projects that will bring a little joy. Here are a couple of Christmas stocking projects that can bring a little magic and fun to your Christmas decorating.

Mini Christmas Stocking Garland from Melissa at Polka Dot Chair!

These adorable stockings go together quickly, make good use of scraps, and would be a quick way to add a handmade touch to your Christmas this year.  
Here's where to find it:  


Liberty Stockings from Blonde Design

These old-school elf stockings are gorgeous in Liberty fabrics, but would be fabulous in any fabric in your stash!
Take a look and see if you can resist stitching up a few for your Christmas decorations this year.  The link below will take you to a quick and easy tutorial, along with the pattern for the stocking with that charming little curl at the toe (the pattern pieces are at the bottom of the tutorial).  

What Christmas sewing projects are you working on this year?
