Bored with store-bought stockings and really loving working with felt, I made my kids new stockings a couple Christmases ago.  I was worried the kids might not want to let go of their old stockings, but they love these! 
I do apologize for the poor quality photos.  Don't know if it's a bad camera, or bad end user  Wink

This one is my daughter's: 

I went to the thrift store and bought an old lambswool sweater in a a lovely red.  I washed it in soapy warm water and it made a perfect felt.  The top is ribbing from the sweater's sleeve. 
I had a vintage white filigree metal-ball necklace which I took apart and flattened to make the snowflakes.  The bunny is made from regular little felt squares.


The mighty oak was once a little nut that stood it's ground.

Oh I just love it!  What a great idea about the sweater - I just went to Joanne's this weekend and picked up felt for the stockings I am making.  It never even dawned on me to use an old sweater!

This has to be one of the cutest stockings I have ever seen.  I love the bunny!  If my daughter had that stocking she probably wouldn't let me pack it up when Christmas is over, she'd want to keep it out forever.  Wonderful job.
