My crafty friend, Jess, whipped these up last weekend and I asked her if I could share. The cutest thing is that she made a "J" for Jess and an "L" for her new hubby, Lex. I can imagine this would work for a lot of letters. And even those that didn't lend themselves to stockings, per se, would still look cute on the mantel even if they didn't open at the top.
Aren't they vibrant?
She found some gorgeous old remnants she had in her stash and came up with this
beautiful palette of red and natural/white.
