    I love paisley! This design is so cute, I want to make some, but everyone I know already has stockings. Perhaps I will make some for Christmas hampers for those who need a bit of help at Christmas time. Thank you for this great push to get Christmas sewing done.

  24. Becca says:

    This is a fun stocking! After many attempts at different solutions, I have decided to save our Christmas cards in a different stocking each year. Then, I don’t have to throw them away, don’t have to wallpaper my house with them, AND I get to have a collection of stockings that far outnumbers the # of people in my household!!

  25. This is beautiful!
