LDS Missionary Stocking

Image
I've designed a custom stocking just for my friend's son who is serving an LDS mission in Houston, TX. I increased the size of the stocking by about 1/3, so my friend will have plenty of room to send goodies to her son. I made the stocking to represent a male missionary and because my friend wanted me to personalize the stocking, I personalized the tie to the state he is serving in (Texas), and embroidered his name on the name tag. I am really excited about the way it turned out! (I blacked out the Elder's name on the tag that's why the tag looks a little messy...)

I'm excited to introduce my original character stocking series...

I started off making these stockings by using Red Heart's free basic stocking pattern which you can find by clicking here. I did change all the double crochet in the pattern to half double crochet for tighter stitches. I did color changes and embellishments according to character. I did not write everything I did down, but wanted to share my work. I used the crocodile stitch on the bottom of the mermaid stocking and it was quite tricky to do because of how I had to assemble it but I think it turned out fantastic! If you have any questions about my work, leave me a comment.

Personalized Crocheted Pony

My little girl's own customized pony! She picked out the colors she wanted and the cutie mark and I crocheted it for her. I had a lot of fun making this one. The macrame took forever though! Best of all, the pattern for this one is free and you can find it here.
