I knew that I would need something to do with my hands while we were traveling to Arizona so I brought along the two stockings that I made for my daughters step-sons. All the lettering had to be appliqued on. I finished them to quickly and then didn't have anything to do :( Next time I'm bringing my sewing machine!! The stockings are the same size but with the cuff added at the top, one turned out about an inch bigger than the other. I hope they don't think I love one more than the other because his stocking is bigger!!
