Stuff this!

The inspiration:

Neiman-Marcus has these adorable stockings!
They are priced starting at $50 and ending at $100! So being the crafty (cheap) person that I am I decided that I could do some decent knock offs for much less!

I spent $50 at Jo-Anns and another $8 at Wall-Mart on Friday. So making 6 of these will average out to be about $10 each, so much better!

The Result:

I got the first stocking done late last night (Carters) and it is huge! I should have thought about what on earth could possibly fill these babies up!

So one down five more to go!
So how much sleep over the next twenty seven days do I need anyway?

Ah yes, at the heart of ever crafter beats a cheapskate who thinks she can do just as well.

And in your case you did! Great job on the stocking.

Wow! They are awesome! You've inspired me because this is my number one task tomorrow... to make my newlyweds their own new stockings, as well as make one for Buddy to hang here at our home. Very fun! Thanks for sharing!
