Joshua's Stocking

Joshua's stocking has now been added to our collection of homemade family stockings.  The most notable thing about this project is that is was so easy.  Three years ago, I posted about the stockings I made for Jerry and me.  It was my first successful project as a novice seamstress, and it was difficult.

Today, this project would have taken no time at all, if I wasn't playing interference with my army-crawling infant.  If you took a close look at my sewing from three years ago, you would see a lot of problems with the rounded edges.  But today, that seemed easy and fast.  I still have a long way to go to improve my skills, but it's nice to feel like I've improved a bit.

Cute! I like the fabric a lot :) I am still nervous of rounded edges but I keep wanting to make stockings for me & Jason so I'll just have to go at it one day - I won't get better w/o trying!
