Our Family Calico and Burlap Christmas Stockings

I Just had to share these cute Christmas stockings I made at the request of my beautiful daughter.  
I’m thrilled with the way they turned out, and so is she! πŸ™‚
I sewed the body of the stockings from calico fabric, then folded the tops over a strip of burlap and added some white ric-rac trim.
Then I cut some strips of red and white check fabric and tied them into bows.  I threaded 2 silver bells on some twine and hot glue gunned them on the burlap trim.
Then I printed off our names in a fancy Victorian font onto transfer paper and ironed them on the top.
Similarly I found a picture of some cute holly sprigs, printed them on transfer paper and ironed them on too.
They are just the right size for a few little treats. πŸ™‚
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas. πŸ™‚
