fabric + buttons + lots of time = stockings

Papertrey Ink is having their anniversary celebration this week. A new line of stamps and dies is being released and it is all about BUTTONS! I love buttons, so I am very excited.

There is a challenge to create some thing with buttons. I just happened to do that for Christmas. Hooray I am ahead of the game. lol  I made stockings for my kids, then spelled their names with Papertrey Ink buttons. I love their big bags of buttons.

Yes the stockings are HUGE. It is a tradition in both mine and my husbands family a box of cereal is in your stocking Christmas morning. My mother-in-law created this pattern and I copied to make them for our family.

Here is a close up of the names. I love how they turned out!

Sewing info: 
I cut 4 layers and sewed them all together. 2 of corduroy, 2 of cotton fabric
Then sewed on the loop to hang them.
Glued the buttons to the cuffs.
Sewed the buttons.
Attached the cuffs to the stockings.
. . . . many hours later and I was done. Now I just need to make them  for hubby and myself. I did buy a ton of the fabric for future family additions, so everything would match. Best of all the kids love them.
