Merry Christmas in July! LOL!
If you didn't read yesterday's post, you should. It will give you some good insight into why in the world I'm doing this! I'll give you a minute to read it.........Ready? Okay!
Let's get started.
One of my FAVORITE childhood memories is waking up EXTREMELY early Christmas morning, getting my stocking (which was only a tube sock) and opening it on my brother's bed. The sound of the stocking crinkling when I picked it up made me all giddy inside!
And by golly I could NEVER, EVER get all the goodies back inside! LOL!
So does that give you a hint about what today's project is?
Well if you haven't already guessed it, I'm going to show you the ADORABLE stockings that I've been making. AND a couple weeks ago Kathy came over and I filmed her making one so now you can make some for your family. Because believe me you're gonna want to when you see them.
And if you're thinking, "No way!" Believe me, I don't consider myself an expert at sewing by ANY means. So if I can do it, so can you! That is unless you don't have a sewing machine. But that's the only excuse I'm going to take.
I've only gotten my daughter's stocking and my stocking done so far. But I love how you get to personalize them.
Here's my daughters.
Can you tell what her favorite color is???
And most of you know by now what my favorite color combo is. And if you didn't you will now!
Aren't they cute?
Now this one is special.
Why is it special?
This is the stocking Kathy made while filming the tutorial. AND, do you notice that the name plate is blank?
That's because one of you are going to be able to win this and decide what name you'd like me to embroider on it for you. (Up to 8 letters!)
All you have to do is tell me what kind of things you used to get in your stockings as a kid. If you didn't do stockings then tell me your favorite childhood Christmas memory. If you don't do Christmas then you probably don't even want this stocking! LOL!
You have until 6 p.m. EST, Friday, July 30, 2010 to enter!
(Sorry but U.S. participants only! It gets a little expensive outside the country!)
But don't wait to see whether you win or not. Go over to my BFF's Blog and see how you can make 1 or 3 or 10 for yourself. It's EASY!
Make sure you come back tomorrow for more Christmasy fun!
