Christmas Stockings!

I finally found time yesterday to make our Xmas stockings. I took the pieces of cut fabric to All Seasons Screenprinting and they embroidered the names. That was about 30 bucks, but I don't have the tools to do it on my machine and it wouldn't look as nice. 
 I used that piece of vintage holly fabric from an estate sale. I added the green pom pom trim and gold ric rac.

 I love them! I went to Joann and was determined to have pom pom trim. They were totally sold out of red and they had a really dark, ugly green and this bright green. Luckily I had a fabric swatch and it matched. I later realized it is exactly the same as my crazy 70s pajamas!
Merry Xmas and Happy Holidays!
