Christmas Stockings Finished

I finished the 6 Christmas Stockings last night and took advantage of the snow we got during the night to take some pictures early this morning.  The paper pieced pattern for the Nutcracker was made by Aqua Paisley Studio.  Each one was a little different...I must have been tired when putting the last 3 together because I got it a bit turned around, but they still look great!

I put them together using the tutorial at Sew Like My Mom and they went together really easily.  Using Minky for the cuff and backing makes them so yummy that I just want to bury my face in them!!

These three are for my step-daughter, her husband and their son - his first Christmas and she gets the ballerina!
This is for my great nephew - pretty sure he already has a stocking since he's 3, but that's all good.
These are for my granddaughters, in their favorite colors, of course!  I was lucky to have purple and pink minky in my stash for the back of these!!

I only bought the gray and red minky for these, everything else was from my stash (not that the volume of that has gone down much!!!).

I'm linking up with Confessions of a Fabric Addict to celebrate this finish!!

Those are as cute as anything! You did a great job, and I'm sure they'll be appreciated. Thanks for sharing the links that helped you finish them.
