These stockings I made from vintage pillow cases and trimmings.
I love them. I'm seriously considering getting rid of the old traditional red and green stockings and trading them for these. I know. After all these years, that almost seems like sacrilege. My family has given permission. They are not too attached to the old. Red and green have never been my favorite colors anyways. I'm on the hunt for more pillowcases. Pillowcases that are not flowery as there are lots of boys around here!
Here is a set I helped my young Doodling Friend make on Thanksgiving weekend. She loves bright and happy colors. For the pattern size and shape, we just copied one of the old stockings. I can't think of the last time I actually bought a pattern! She appliqued names on hers, and will be giving them as gifts. My Bambi applique is from here. A pretty simple project for the holidays. Give it a try.
