They are more for decoration than anything else but you could stuff some small trinkets and candy in there.
How I made them..
I made a template of a stocking using a sturdy piece of cardstock/cardboard type thing. My stocking was a little taller at the top to account for the fold down part. I doubled my drop cloth (after prewashing it of course) and just used a pencil to lightly trace around the stocking until I had enough traced out.
Pin around each stocking and then cut around about 1/2 inch from your pencil line.
Once all the stockings were cut out I folded the top down about an inch and a half or so, repinned, and then sewed directly on top of the pencil line using a zig-zag stitch in red thread.
I wanted these to look a little shabby/chic/rustic,, whatever you wanna call it.
I have no idea why this picture won't rotate,,
They measure about 7 1/2 in to 8 inches long.
I wished I had taken photos as I went along but I got the idea and just ran with it. Still debating on whether or not I should add names to each at the top.?? What ya think?
