I'm not sure I'm finished with these yet.  I just whipped them up out of felt, stuffed the toes, sewed on some trim & bells then made tags using photo iron ons.  Can you think of further embellishments?

I really love the idea of putting photo tags on them, it makes them so much more personal.
Hm and I think they would look great with yellow or gold stars on them Smiley

I love them, too.  Maybe add their names, first initial or monogram below the photo tags?  It feels like there's still a lot of red to be dolled up.  "Lacing" up the front with pompoms or momre bells at the end of the laces?

depends on the theme you're going for,

feathers, fishnet, (red/black)lace, xmas colors, patterns, stripes, glitter, sequins, jewels, more bells.  i'm actually going to try to make one later, i'll put up a picture when i'm finished Smiley

i have to get started on these soon! must make one for me, hubby, and one for our cat [it's her 1st christmas with us so.. like.. YEAH I'M MAKING ONE FOR MY CAT, OK.]  Wink

i like sequins and stars, so they'll probably all look a bit different.

I had the idea to put my granddaughter and grandneices picture on the felt stocking, but when I tried it, The picture was all blurry, can anyone help? I know there must be a way because the opposite side of my stocking has a perfect transfer of Santa. Huh I will appreciate any help you may give. This is my first inspiration in a long time. Thanks and I wish you Lovely Holidays.
