I just realized that I never posted the stocking stuffers that I made back in November! I like to sneak something handmade into the stockings that I have access to on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. This year I had access to 15 stockings, so I had to choose my project wisely.
I used the JCasa tutorial from Sew Mama Sew and wowie were they quick to put together! I had these cut and sewn within 2 hours! I highly recommend an assembly line if you’re going to tackle large quantities of the same product.
These were a hit, surprisingly especially with our almost-5 year-old nephew, who asked if he could bring it to bed with him because he was a little sniffly. I love that they can be refilled with tissues from a normal box. Plus, since I end up crying at a good deal of the movies we see, it’s nice that I’m not alerting the whole theatre of my sappiness by the crinkling of a normal tissue packet. It makes my crying covert!
I love this Jay McCarroll fabric. I used it to make last year’s stocking stuffers. I still have a bunch of large scraps leftover and am thinking that they would work nicely for one of the charity quilts that I plan on making.
