Christmas Stockings

Did you ever notice all the different styles, sizes, colors, etc.. of Christmas stockings. 
As a kid I loved running to my stocking and discovering all the goodies inside :)  The fun little trinkets were as much fun to open as the big things under the tree.

I think we adults, especially DIY's love the creativeness of the stocking.  Matching decor or expressing our taste or creativity.  I made some stockings and thought I would share them with you.....
The first one is a little hard to see but it is a black stocking with a stained glass type of fabric cuff.

Here is the cuff close up..... I love the different colors.....

And of course you have to have a traditional Christmas stocking made out of red, green and black tartan.

The cream stocking is my favorite.... I love the material....I don't know what it is but it looks like coconut to me :)  I used a fuzzy warm fleece for the cuff and a fun ribbon to decorate the edge. 

 The gold reminds me of the golden star that lead the wise men to the baby Jesus.  
I just really like the uniqueness of this one.

The first two are available on for 5 whoops each.  If your not familiar with whoopdwhoop it is a website you can trade your crafts with other crafters ~ no money is used. Check it out, I have gotten some cute things :)

Enjoy hanging your stockings!!!
Merry CHRISTmas!!!!
