I love to make things and that included our Christmas stocking. So a few years back I had picked up some stocking and put our names on them so they would all look the same. Well, then the little surprise showed up earlier this year and now he needs a stocking. No problem! I can do this again, right? WRONG.
Now that I have two kids, my patience are very thin, on everything. So
when the package said “set on wool and iron for 90 seconds” I take that to mean
90 seconds. So when five minutes later the letters STILL had not transferred,
well I got impatient. I bumped the iron up to cotton and, well, the smoke and
smell were almost instant as the stocking melted to the iron! “MOM” my six year
old yelled “you need to be patient!” Funny thing that… I tell him that all the
time and yet he is the one who over the years has made me
Lucky for me I was able to scrap the stocking off of the iron
and I had not spent a lot on it either. With a trip to the store the next day I
set out to once again make our youngest his Christmas stocking. With the iron on
wool, I took a deep breath and counted to 90. And this time, this time it
worked, just like it was supposed to! I was patient. I followed directions and
now my sweet baby has his very own Christmas stocking. I guess I can do it all,
