Easy stocking ornament

I made this little stocking ornament last night.  I used the pattern for these paper stockings to get the shape right.  Super easy, and really quick.  I think this took about an hour, from tracing the pattern to hanging it on the tree. 

My mom made a bunch of ornaments when she was first married about 30 years ago.  You can see one in the left hand side of the photo -- that plaid little bunny. Her ornaments don't have the stitching on the outside where the the stuffing goes in. How did she do that?!

Total aside: is this not the best photo I have ever taken?  No idea how I did it.  None.


  1. Yes! Even before I read this:

    "Total aside: is this not the best photo I have ever taken?"

    I was thinking that you MUST have upgraded your camera... this is an AMAZING shot! The gold ornament glistens so nicely!!

  2. Thank you! I'm still curious as to how it happened. I took another photo RIGHT after, and it is blurry as ever.

    Oh, technology...

  3. i am toootally impressed! LOVE IT! I might need to order one of those... along with the string and leather bone for lilly bean :)

  4. BBL, I will make you one! I'll bring it in Jan.
