Bas doux - { Sweet Stocking }

♪ It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas..... ♪ The first of December typically heralds the beginning of shopping centre mayhem and feisty and delirious "leave it til the last minute" shoppers. But in this little abode we are going one hundred percent handmade (o.k. maybe with the exception of a particularly fussy sibling who I have finally succumbed to buying a gift voucher! Zut alors!)

Some time ago the lovely Selina of Selina's vintage organised a stocking swap. What a grand and merry idea!! Here is the piece of festive loveliness I received in the mail from Bonnie of Fat Chick Design. The fabric is so pretty and I can only imagine the cheeky minx of an elf that would frolic about in such a curly toed boot. Santa would definately have to keep an eye on that one!

In true "me" style I only remembered to photograph the stocking I made as I watched it slip from my fingers into the dark chasm of the mail box. It took a long and perilous journey to Italy and the lovely Blandina has been generous enough to share it.

May your Christmas preparations be magic....and remember....♪ Santa sees you when you're sleeping, he knows when you're awake, he knows if you've been bad or be good for goodness sake ♪!

As you know, i'm attempting to make as much as a i can and outsourcing the rest to include other handmade delights made by others!! wishing you a wonderful first day of Summer and the beginning of the festive season xx

I love your Christmas stocking it is so adorable.

I think it is so wonderful to give gift that are made with love from the heart. I made my little one a mouse today it was suppose to be for Christmas but she spied it on now it is safely in her arms and doesn't look like leaving.

Have a beauty filled day. xxx
