|(names obscured to protect the surprise)|
These stockings have solid backings with holiday fabrics, fronts pieced from scraps, and flannel false-cuffs with embroidered names.
My sewing inspector had to check everything out...
I embroidered the recipients names on the stocking cuffs. Prior to nursing I worked several years running an embroidery machine and my old boss let me come back and make these :) I didn't think I remembered how to use the machine, but once I started I found out my fingers still remembered.
I called this a "false cuff" because it only goes across the front of the stocking and is sewn into the side seams. It's a lot easier to make than a full cuff, but it makes the stocking look fancier.
I think the 9 stockings have 4 different holiday fabrics for backs. Of course these will be stocked with goodies before Christmas :) I hope your holiday season is off to a good start! Remember, if you're interested in a tutorial for my middle-of-the road stockings it's here.
Linking to Finish if Friday.
