My husband's family has a tradition. An Aunt makes a stocking for every new baby. I'm not the only Aunt in the family, but I'm the only crafty one- so I'm making my third family stocking.
This one I used my embroidery machine to put the name on- so it looks super fancy there. It is fully lined. I'm not 100% happy with it (I think I just need to iron it out, but I'm scared of melting the fleece) but I think it looks pretty good. My SIL told me that the stocking needs to be pretty big, so I tried to make it big.
I put off sewing it for quite some time- but it was pretty easy to make. And my machine just goes right on over the 8+ layers of fabric, fleece, batting, and rick-rack. It is nice to not have to wrestle with it at all!
