What materials did you use? I used cotton quilting fabric, batting and my embroidering sewing machine.

What are you most proud of? That I figured out how to do it myself and got the embroidery in the right place and that I picked penguin fabric for Daniel's (because he likes penguins) and cupcakes for Kiley's because she likes sweets.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Think it through. I added the stripes one at a time to the batting so that it was quilted at the same time as it was sewn. After I had sewn the strips on, then I used my serger to attach the stocking front and back and trimmed off all the excess fabric at one time. Then I turned it inside out and added the hanging loop and the cuff. I had to really think to make sure that the right parts were showing and that the serging was hidden.
