Nothing like leaving it to the last minute, huh? I’ve been thinking about these stockings for months now, imagining the different retro space images I would use and plotting out the different color combination. You would think that I would have began cutting these out at least sometime in November, right? Wrong. Last week, I started working on these last week. Luckily, Jackson’s teeth stalled a bit and he took wonderfully long naps (now that I said that, he’s not going to take any naps this week!), enabling me to not only design these in Illustrator but also cut and hand-stitch all the felt components.
I had every intention of working on these the 1st of November but life got in the way. I even made sure to keep a pattern so that I could share the tutorial with you guys! Being that it’s 4 days away from Christmas, I’m afraid my Retro Space Stockings tutorial will have to wait until next year. I even programed an alarm on my phone, reminding me to release the pattern on November 1, 2010.
So, if you like these stockings and would like to make some of your very own, meet me back here in a little less than a year!
