12 days of Christmas Bloghop- day 5

Hey guys, have I told y'all how much I REALLY love the Dollar Tree?  Because I do.  And I have to say that thanks to it, it has kept me from making card after card for this hop.  While there's nothing wrong with cards, I like to go to a hop for inspiration (and I've gotten a TON of inspiration already!).  Speaking of, let's pause a moment to give Lisa from Honeybearz Designs a hand for putting on such an AMAZING hop with tons of amazing projects with some VERY talented ladies and some great give-aways to boot!  I'm REALLY excited to be a part of this again this year!

So, back to the dollar tree.  Yeah, they have some really pretty stockings there this year.  I decided to get two for this project.

BIG shout-out to my friend Donna who has saved my butt on 2 projects (one I'm showing soon) by generously donating wire hangers and polyfil!  (yes, my friends are awesomeness in leather vests because they know how random and creative I can be and also help to support my habits!)

For one you will need:
pre-made stocking.
polyfil stuffing
hand-needle and matching thread.

Stuff the stocking with the polyfil until desired fluffy size.  Whip stitch (or invisible stitch) the top closed.  voila!  Instant Christmas pillows for your decorating needs!  how cute would these be for the kids for their beds to decorate their rooms?

As usual, here's the lineup.  Don't forget to leave everyone some love on their blogs!  I know hitting the end of the hop it can get pretty tedious, but we do appreciate it!  Thanks so much for coming and I'll see you tomorrow with another crazy project!!
