If you need Christmas stockings because you missed out on last year's after Christmas sales, you can make really fun ones without sewing and for a little cost. Just buy the cheapest red felt stockings you can find (try drug and discount stores) and sheets of felt at a craft store. Cut out shapes from the felt and glue! Last year I did stars, old-fashioned Christmas bulbs, a spotted dog with red bow, ringing bells, a Christmas tree, a snowman, snowflakes, polka-dots, mistletoe...all were very simple die-cut-like cut-outs and colorful, and they looked fantastic and unique hanging in front of the fireplace. For an extra fun flair, use non-traditional Christmas colors and shapes to glue onto the stockings - like pastel polka dots, stripes or spirals.
