I made one of those stockings for our niece when she was born. I liked it so much that I made two more for Klaus and I. The one on the bottom image has a real fur collar. The fur was recycled from an old coat.

It takes only about two hours to sew a beautiful stocking as seen above. Use it for yourself or fill it with a gift and give it to a loved one.

 

Material

20″ by 24″ of fabric for stocking
20″ by 24″ of fabric for lining
2 pieces of 3-3/4″ by 8″ of Santa uniform fur
12″ of ribbon
