I made these for my family about 3-4 years ago, way before knowing about Craftster. We had those cheap synthetic red & white ones that weren't cutting it anymore. These are about 18" long & 8" wide - I made them big cause our stockings are always filled w/goodies. Each was hand dyed differently as you can see & is lined w/plain white muslin.. The girl's stockings have some trim added for that festive touch.

Thanks for looking & Merry Christmas!!!!!!!!

So cute I always want to make some but I never get around to doing it. They are so cute and festive.

So many ideas so little time. Will I ever get them all done?

. . . I always want to make some but I never get around to doing it.
Thanks beth8144 - I know what you mean, I thought of making these for years & procrastinated until I saw a Martha Stewart episode where she made these (not dyed), then I decided it was time.

Thanks Megzy818 - Yes, memories are great. That stocking your mom made will be kept forever. I made one for my oldest daughter before her sister was born & I still have it.
