Purple Panda's Striped Stocking tutorial
Diary of Quilter's Easy Stocking tutorial

and then for the two tutorials that I actually used:
Pattern Patti's A Dotty Stocking tutorial
Mommy For Reals' Quilted Stocking tutorial
- I had intended on embroidering our names like in Mommy For Reals' tutorial but in my head I was thinking I could do that later... not so much. So, now I'm looking at methods to put our names on them. Any suggestions?
So... primarily I used Pattern Patti's tute, but clearly I did the topsy turvy quilted stripes on one side and the polka dot monogram on the other. I now wish I had gotten coordinating solid fabric to do the monograms but not sure there is anything to be done about it now. Anyway, even though there are a couple of things that I would do differently I am still totally proud of them and can't wait to hang them up for the rest of the Christmas season and for many more years to come.
