Creating this swap was a challenge for me. My partner had so many great points of inspiration for her family stockings from Alice in Wonderland to Breaking Bad that I just didn't know which one to go with. My swap partner told me that her and her partner's favorite animal was fox so I eventually decided to go with that.
I tried something different with swap and used a quilting pattern. I took a single block from THIS quilt pattern that I purchased and turned it into a stocking. I'll be able to reuse the pattern later to make a quilt for one of my friends who is doing a woodland creatures theme for her nursery. While I've used garment patterns before, this was my first time following a pre-made piecing pattern!
My partner was vegan and lived in England so I went to the local vegan specialty store to try and find some fun vegan things that were in distribution in England so my partner could try some rare treats.
I really love the pattern I used! It's by Elizabeth Hartman and you can check it out here. Plus I love how easy it would be to use up a bunch of scrappy pieces for it. It took a while for inspiration to strike this time around, but I'm really happy with what I sent to partner.
