Burlap Stocking. Take 2

I was a little more than slightly obsessed with making this burlap stocking last night.  I just knew I could do it. So using this tutorial,  I mentioned yesterday, took it step by step and finally finished it just now.  I was very excited about how it turned out, and had to share it.
 I decided to go with a different color thread, so it would go with the trim.
My daughters name will either be stitched on, or glue with glitter
 See, this is the difference when I really put my mind to something.

This was my first experience with pleats, it took a few tries but I finally got it!
I'm so pleased, much better the second time around.  Click here for my first attempt.
I always thought this sewing stuff looked so difficult, but with a little (or a lot) of patience one can sew almost anything!
I will continue trying new projects, I appreciate your support on this new endeavor I'm taking on.  I hope you have been inspired to try something new as well.
The high here has been hanging around 40 all week, so there has been little motivation to get out on my driveway and work on any furniture.  So I've had to release my creativity in other ways...
