A Christmas favorite to remind you of your childhood - a brightly colored, festive stocking that your kids are sure to love as much as you did.
Make easy padded stockings with this simple pattern of fabric layers which include any type fabric cut in amounts of 4 and 2 layers of batting. I have made this size which is 9 inches long 4 inches wide and 7 inches from heal to toe end.
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.
Someone gave me a floor mat for my baby to play on that was missing some toys that dangle. Instead of throwing it away when I got a better one, I decided to cut it up and make a stocking!

Is there a way to "flip" a Christmas stocking pattern? I have one stocking with the "toe" going right. I have completed it. The next stocking, the pattern I love, only comes with the toe facing left.I would like it to match the first one (directionally) so when I hang on fireplace they will face same way.
I crochet a little and had a similar problem - which I solved by simply making two 'fronts' and hanging the finished stockings to have the toes facing one another. All I did differently was to choose different right sides when stitching.
Taking it very slowly, row by row, I was able to get the pair done.
