Deck the Halls...

I had this idea to make Christmas stockings for my dolls in my head forever. I just never got around to making them last year. So what better time to create a new product then when you are in the midst of the holiday rush? LOL

They look so adorable hanging by the mantle.





It's tough to surprise my own daughter when it comes to doll clothes and accessories. Since my workspace is just a little nook in the entryway to our home, I cannot hide things from the family. When she saw the first doll sized stocking she yelled - "Oh, that pink one is for me, right?" Being a dollmaker really puts a dent in the Santa Story...

I wish I had my own room with a key and lock to work in. But here I am with my fabric, threads, and packages spilling out in every direction of the house. Some day... Unfortunatly it might be after the kids move out.

These are adorable! Very courageous to start something new at this time! I was working on something but gave up due to the timing. . .

Wonder what it was? I hope you get to make it for next year!

Such sweet little stockings.... and babes- then I got to imagining the lovely lace trims you wrote about a few days ago and my finger itch with imagined delights!

When asked, my daughter said the one and only thing she wanted for Christmas was "the ballerina doll without a name." You are truly one of Santa's Elves! ;)

Thanks, Stephanie! I hope she arrives safe and sound and your daughter enjoys her as much as I enjoyed making her. I love making ballerinas. =)
