My mother made me a felt stocking when I was a baby that I have used for every Christmas. When I got married I decided I liked the look of it so much I've made one for my husband and each of my children (we have four). I have looked around and Herrschners is the best place anywhere to find them. They have so many to choose from and they often have great sales too. I highly recommend this for fun and pretty easy stockings. A quick tip when working with a felt kit - only cut out one piece at a time. That way you won't forget which piece is which and it will save you lots of trouble. Also I used a big tupperware bowl for my floss, beads, and sequins. It was so easy to pick them out from there and then put the lid on in between sewing sessions.
|My husband's stocking is on the far left. My eldest son's is in the middle. Mine that my mother made me is on the far right.|
|Miya is my second child. I loved how fun this stocking was and it's so sparkly.|
|Amelia is my third baby. I wanted each stocking to have something different on it and we were having a hard time deciding what to get. I love the bears around the campfire and it seems like it will work for her when she's older too.|
