Do you all remember when I posted the other day about trying to have a handmade non~breakable Christmas?
I have made a few things that I would like to share with you all. However to try to make an entire tree of non~breakable ornaments was over ambitious at best. So I am amending my previous post to, I will make some non~breakable ornaments every year. Maybe one day I will have enough ornaments for an entire tree. Hopefully before the baby leaves to collage.
I thought one post might be to long so we are going to be breaking it up into a couple of posts. First up are the Christmas stockings.
This year we have a plethora of stockings. Big ones, little ones, and tiny ones.
This is to give you some scale. The big red one is one of the stockings that we hang every year for the family. My Mom, sister and I all made some for each of our family's a few years ago. Last year I made a few new ones so that we all would have one. I hadn't kept up with them since the last couple of kiddos were born.
The little one is made from this pattern. The pattern is free from Le monde de Sucrette, one of my favorite crochet blogs. She is amazing the pattern is written using UK and American terms and in French. Like I said amazing!
It turned out a little bigger than I had expected. It is 8 inches from top to toe. I had thought of using it as a tree ornament but it is to big.
So, back to the drawing board I really wanted to crochet some little stocking for the tree. I got some crochet thread (size 10) in red and glitter white and my mom's tiny #5 (1.90mm) crochet hook and got to hooking. I used pretty much the same pattern. However, I did lengthen the heel part by 2 rows.
These tiny ones are 4 inches top to toe. I LOVE them!
