Mr. T and I used to fill stockings for one another (mine is my original Christmas stocking from the 1950s, and his is one I got him sometime after we got married), but in recent years we decided to forego even the stocking stuffers and just put any money we would have spent toward overnight getaways during the year. That's more meaningful to both of us.
All that to say, I will probably have no need to make any more Christmas stockings unless it is just for decorative purposes, or possibly as gifts. (I do crochet a stocking for each new grandchild.) Yet these are so cute, and I could have such fun with fabric combinations!
If you happen to be in the market for some new stockings for your family, or to gift to others, this tutorial: Christmas Stocking Tutorial looks like a good one. Happy crafting!
