sewing project: stocking

a few months ago i bought a sewing machine (barely used!) off a friend. i was super excited to teach myself to sew. then i started practicing sewing seams and corners and got scared. i had a big plan to make a quilt for jacob (this turned out to be majorly unrealistic for a first project). pinterest inspired me to start small and make jacob a stocking. i found a GREAT pattern and step-by-step instructions via this pin and decided to give it another try. the site has a pattern which you could print out, cut out and tape together, genius! yesterday i bought fabric, today i made a stocking (in 2 hours!!). it isn't perfect, but honestly i am quite proud of it anyways!!
