Now that its closer to New Years than it is to Christmas, it is about time I shared my homemade, handmade Christmas home and gifts. A little late to make for this Christmas, but looking on the bright side, in plenty of time for next year!
So this is what can be made from a checked dressing gown.
Retro dressing gown
Dissecting to get enough fabric to make Christmas stockings
Tracing out a pattern for a giant sock onto card
Measuring out fur, ribbons and stacking up the front and back stockings
Laying out to make sure I have enough of everything
Making up the linings from Irish linen
Fully lined, ready for the fur toppers
All done and hanging across the mantle ready for Santa to fill.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all
