Well kind of. I was pretty inspired after a cute friend of mine made these insanely amazing upholsterd chairs AND I had a long standing date with a Brooklyn girl friend of mine to sew - so I was destined to learn at some point! I decided that 2 Christmas stockings for the future Mr. & Mrs. Brooklyn Boy would be a manageable first project.
First Stop: Salvation Army
I bought a large womens plaid jacket (because I LOVED the plaid) and a burlap looking womens skirt.
Here we are mid project...
And here's one of the finished stockings!!
I'll snap some pictures of the pair this weekend, but I loved how perfectly imperfect they turned out! What do you think!
