DIY Christmas Stockings

Hey y’all! Welcome to “Blogmas” day 5. Sorry I didn’t post anything yesterday, but I decided I’m not going to be posting on Sundays during the holidays. Just so I have 1 day a week to relax.

I am a senior in High school and we are required to do a “graduation project”. I chose to learn how to sew and actually made a really cute swing dress that I will probably show you guys soon. I thought it would be cute to sew everyone in my family a stocking for christmas!

The first thing I did was go and buy 5 different patterned cotton fabrics ( a different one for each person). I got 3/4 yd. of each because I wasn’t sure how big I was going to make them. I can actually end up making 2 stockings out of each 3/4 yd so now I am going to be making 10 stockings!

I traced a stocking that we already had so that I could cut out the fabric.

Once you have finished cutting the fabric out, sewing it is pretty simple. There are many tutorials on youtube if you are nor sure what to do. I used a piece of scrap fabric to practice on first so I wouldn’t mess up any of the Christmas prints! It’s super easy to do, even if you are not a wiz on the sewing machine ( I’m not either! ). If I can do it, you can too, I promise.

The stockings I have made so far:

Holiday Beauty Essentials 

Hey ya’ll! Welcome to “Blogmas Day 3”! Today’s post is all about my holiday essentials.

My Real Techniques beauty sponge is a must, especially in the winter. This is a dupe for the beauty blender and gives a natural and more dewy look. This is great for the winter when everyone tends to have skin more on the dryer side. By using this sponge your makeup will look less cakey.

This is a mauve lip color from essence and it is seriously AMAZING. It’s only $2 and stays on all day. It is Avery natural almost “your lips but better” shade. 

If I’m not wearing my mauve lip liner ,I’m wearing this red lip combo. 

This Mary Kay extra emollient cream is my favorite mouisturizer ever. It says it is targeted for dry skin, but I have oily skin and love it. 
I just got this palette on Black Friday, but have been wearing it everyday since. I love the colors, especially the matte purples. You can really darken up the look or make an everyday natural eye as well. 

What are your guys holiday winter Essentials?
