When my sister and I were born my mother made us both personalised felt stockings (presumably by the time my brothers came along she'd had enough, as they got mass-produced sacks...), so last year I decided to make her her own, to replace the beat-up sock she'd been using. The body of the stocking was machine stitched (in approximately five minutes - next year I really will start my Christmas crafting before Christmas Eve...), and I blanket-stitched around all the decorative elements before sewing them on by hand with invisible thread.

The front:

The back:

The back looks a little bit sparse, but I couldn't think of anything to go with the gingerbread men. If you've got any thoughts on that (so I can sneak them on next Christmas) or any other comments generally, please let me know!

Really great!

To add on to the gingerbread men, maybe glasses of milk? Or gingerbread women?
