Pattern Description:
I used the pattern template from this Tutorial
Pattern Sizing:
N/a
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
No because I didn't use patchwork.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes, very.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love that the instructions were easy and clear. I had planned to make patchwork but Christmas is less than a week away and I wanted to have 4 stockings made before then.

Fabric Used: Christmas themed cotton fabric from Joann's.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: Did not create patchwork fabric. Used black piping and white boa to trim each stocking so that they are so a set even though they are different.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes and yes
Conclusion:
I love mixing fabrics that aren't "matchy matchy" but coordinate in unexpected ways. I believe that the black piping and the white boa made the stockings "pop". I am very pleased with the outcome.

Very nice. I really like the mix of fabrics with the same trims on each. Nice detailing with the piping, in particular.
