For the Boys!

A big thanks to Amy and Madame Samm for bringing us another great blog hop!


First I wanted to show you another of my table runners, the latest to be published in Create & Decorate Magazine. Since it's with Snowmen, I think it's appropriate for this blog hop:


The pattern for the Snowmen Runner is available in my
Etsy and Craftsy shops.

Second, I designed and stitched these stocking ornaments specifically for this hop. They're inspired by the traditional menswear pattern of argyle. They look like argyle socks, but since they're ornaments I'm calling them "stockings."


They measure 6" tall (minus the cording) and 4" wide at the widest point.

And here's the free pattern for you all to enjoy and hopefully make! They're easy to construct and are a great way to use up WoolFelt scraps. Just click on the image below to download.

I'll respond to all comments provided you're not a No Reply Blogger. If you are, leave me an email address!

Be sure to visit the other talented folks on today's list!
