Sew Ready for Christmas!

I am making a new Christmas Stocking to welcome an
extended family member to our Christmas Day Celebration.

I decided on a French Braid pattern for this one
to showcase the beautiful ornament print 
fussy cut in the center.
The center is a 4.5" square on point.

I cut and sewed 1.5" squares and strips for he braid. 

I used the same pattern I have saved for all our family stockings

Free Maywood Studio Pattern and Template

and followed my own tutorial ...

I will show the finished stocking after it is gifted.

Are you sew ready for Christmas?

Love your stocking. Wherever did you find your pattern? It looks like a great size.

Your stocking will be loved! Thanks for the reminder of the tutorial! I’m Sew ready! Christmas is pretty low key here. We’re a small family and only exchange one gift each. That frees up a little extra time and money to do something extra for those less fortunate.

I really like the way you pieced the fabric. It's a clever way to make scraps disappear or at least to use them up.
