Growing up, all us kids had personalized stockings. My parents picked out stocking for us with a cool design or character on it, and my mother wrote our names in glitter. I always liked that tradition, and I would love to continue that tradition when my husband and I start our own family. Right now though, our pets are our family. And like kids, they each have their own personality traits and different looks. I wanted to make truly unique stockings for my furry kids that captured their spirit.
All of these stockings were made with felt and lots of love.
Henrik: The crazy eyed, always excitable Australian Shepherd.
Gordo: The happy ginger cat.
After creating these stocking and posting them on facebook, they were so well received! People loved them! So here's a few more that I've created...
Vegas: The pampered Mini Schnauzer.
|Unfortunately, I don't have a complete picture of this stocking|
Toby: The playful and doofy lab mix.
Lucky: The Cutie Yorkie.
|This stocking was made with a combination of felt and yarn|
Molly: The Poised Mini Poodle.
Kayto: The shy American Eskimo .
Cosmo: the playful American Eskimo mix (Kayto's brother).
|Cosmo has light beige spots by his ears, I created that effect by using tea as a dye. It worked well and it smells yummy!|
Callie: The sassy and silly tortoiseshell cat.
Hope everybody is enjoying their holidays! Here's a bit of holiday cheer I made for my kitchen while making some Broccoli & Cheddar soup - recipe coming soon! ;-)
