Straighten Your Seams - The Christmas Stocking Tutorial by Ros Coffey of RosMadeMe Blog

I love making Christmas Stockings and have made quite a few in my lifetime. Some were made of cloth, some were knit, some made of fleece, some lined, etc. I never made any strip pieced stockings so I was pleased when Ros Coffey told me she just finished a tutorial on her RosMadeMe Blog blog showing you how to make adorable strip pieced stockings. I'll definitively have to make some of these.

Here's what Ros had to say about her tutorial: I don't know about you but one of my most fave childhood Christmas memories was waking up in the early hours feeling the weight on your feet and knowing that Father Christmas had been, filled your stocking and waiting until daylight before I was allowed to open them. Although I was lucky that I was not my mum, as one Christmas two of her sisters, she was the eldest of 12, got up in the middle of the night and swapped the presents around so that they got what they wanted... at least, until my granny woke up! Back then I used my father's socks from his wellingtons, large creamy socks with utilitarian writ large, so we are going to make something a little more aesthetically pleasing for the end of our beds.

Ros's Bio:I live by the sea, in Essex, in Leigh-on-sea. I have been making things since I was a child, earliest memories were embroidering squares of binca matting, making felt egg cups and ripping back my knitting when my sister had picked up a dropped stitch... yep, it really did have to be all my own work! I am a dreadful hoarder, with stashes of wool and fabric hidden around my house, together with the projects that I have not yet finished. I am currently making cushions, quilted, appliqued, stencilled... actually just anything that I will enjoy crafting.
