Christmas Crafts 2009: Monogrammed Stockings

This is the first of several Christmas crafting posts that I will be sharing in the next few weeks. I really love handmade touches around the home and I will also be making several gifts for family and friends this year. Not only does a handmade gift feel more personal, with a tight budget, it really helps me keep my spending in check too! These stockings are for all of the members of our family (human and furry!) so I monogrammed them with each member's initial. The large ones are for my husband, Ken, and I. The medium ones are for our two cats; Amelia and Oliver. The smallest stockings are for our two sugar gliders; Conan and Pip. To make them look cohesive, I tried to limit the colors of felt that I used and added some beaded holly. All parts of these are hand stitched, which adds to their rustic and handmade appeal!
