December 11th

Once upon a time there was a need for one more Christmas-stocking, and it was for a little princess this time. The court seamstress rummaged through her stash, and found a little (thrifted) mohair-wool sweater in just right shades. Clipety-clip went the scissors...

...and then it was time to choose the decoration. The seamstress knew, that the little princess liked all things bling, and everything was chosen accordingly...

And then the seamstress sew and sew...

...added a matching lining and finally...

The Royal Stocking was all finished! It has the princesses initial* on the other side and some family heirloom-ish stars on the other. Now the seamstress is off to sew an another stocking to the same family, and this time it'll be with little less pink&sparkle - the brother of the princess is not that prince-y after all.

Happy December 11th!


* Vivienne fear no - this is not for you!

Dear Robin,

I wish you're feeling better already, and not that stressed, there are still days until the Holidays...Let's enjoy!

Happy day!


Mia said...

I love them too, dear Vivienne, I can't stand movies or books with no happy end - even if they're good otherwise :)

Happy bunny-making!

Hello sweet Anne,

It's quite cold here too, and pretty also as it's snowing little. Stay warm and cozy - happy wrapping!

Heipsan Nova,

Ja kiitos! Ja mukavaa oli lukea blogistasi, että messut menivät hyvin (vaikka jänskättikin ;) etukäteen)!

Mukavia puuhailu-hetkiä sinnepäin!

Terkuin Mia

Thank you Zoe!

Lovely to have you visiting me here, and happiest last days before Christmas, yours might not ;) be white, but may it otherwise be wonderful!


Mia said...

Thank you, Shanti!

I wish you lovely days before the Holidays...And it's not that long anymore!


This time of the year...

Usually around this time, when children go back to school, and you can just about to smell the autumn, I start to dig deeper in my fabric...
