Wisconsin Ann, I'm not sure you'll be able to copy them after today but I copied them to WordPad and can print them out and send to if you'd like. I also copied the pictures for reference. I think they're so cute and a great way to use up bits of yarn.
I didn't check out the link for the prairie boots but am going to go back and do so.
I grabbed the entire page, so I'm set Can't you just see a tree with a hundred of those little stockings on it? All in different colors....Some with names emboidered....
I once did a tree for a holiday work party with just lights, and over 150 red and white felt stockings...3 inches high, names on each one in gold paint, and little surprises for everyone in their own stockings. (and a bunch of candycanes all over the tree). It was a HUGE hit. The CEO was wearing his stocking as a lapel pin the next day at work. I about fell over.
ok I'm having fun with these. I've made two so far, hopefully I'll have time to make a couple more. They'll make great little treat bags. I wanted to post a pictures so you can see what size they are, to me it was hard to tell by their pictures how big they were. I put a quarter there for size. Hosted on Fotki
It took a little over an hour to make one once I had the pattern figured out. Problem is I'm running out of some of my yarn lol,, so if anyone has some extra white hanging around pass it over. Oh and is it just me or is that pattern a bit confusing? I think the first one I made took extra time just to read over the pattern and figure out what they were saying.
