    I’ve had some fabric to sew stocking for my husband and kids and I, for the past month, but haven’t gotten around to starting them yet. I need to hurry up before Christmas comes!

  15. Sharon says:

    This Holiday Sew Along has been fun — looking forward to getting started on this Christmas planned gifts. Guess these stockings should be on my list. They’re cute.

  16. Anya says:

    These are really great and look really fun!

  17. Ginger says:

    Why is it that last year I couldn’t find a free stocking pattern that I liked? So I made one up myself. This year they are everywhere. 🙂

  18. Jessica says:

    Such great inspiration! Now is the perfect time to ‘get in the spirit’ of homemade gifts; close enough to snow, but lots of time to get everyone on your list accounted for. Last year I made a monster stocking for my 4 yr old and a dirt bike boot stocking for DH. Have a new little one to make a stocking for this year…I’m thinking monster fits him to a T. 🙂

    what a fun way to use scraps and customize for each individual! This is the perfect addition to the “tree pants” sew along – and great to coordinate holiday decor!

  23. Jessica says:

    The machine stitching on these it lovely. I like the idea that the lines don’t have to be perfect, it makes it so much more fun!

  29. R Harrison says:

    These would be great used as gift bags . I’m thinking of personalizing them with initials embroidered.

  30. Glo says:

    I love those stockings. I could make one for each of my grands and fill them with sweet little treasures for Christmas Eve! Would love to win the books also I am rather new at quilting!

    have been trying to find the sew-alongs, am I looking in the wrong place or just blind? LOL (could be having a senior moment, I have them way too often! LOL)
