I love Christmas stockings...with a passion. I especially love vintage stockings. I often find them at estate sales for a dollar and imagine that someone woke up on the magic of Christmas morning many years ago to find that santa had been there and left gifts in that very stocking. There's no way I can pass that up.I especially love felt and handmade stockings.They remind me of my childhood Snoopy stocking that I still hang each year.I also hang the vintage paper stocking I made in Pam's class at Silver Bella two years ago.So I decided that this year I wanted the kids to each have their hand at making their own stocking. One to keep and put up each year as they grow older. I bought a large felt stocking for each for $1 and pulled out my felt stash and some little felt ornaments I bought last year intending to put them on a cloth gingerbread house. As you can see, I helped with the cutting, but they certainly had their say in the design. I adore them and so do they! Here's a few more stockings we have up around the house that I've collected over the years. Each with it's own wear and it's own story, that I can only imagine.
