Advent Calendar Day 18--Christmas Stockings

Back in the day, I was a fairly crafty, not sly....crafty! A good friend and I were babysitters....home daycare providers, if you will. During naptime, every afternoon, we would bring out our latest craft project.....sit, sew and watch daytime soaps, while the kids slept.

Sometime before 1984, I handcrafted Christmas stockings for my boys. I guess we must have been into Snoopy and Charlie Brown back then.

These same two stockings have hung on the mantel ever since....although now that they are adults, they are purely decorative.

  1. They are wonderful. Cute! I think you should fill them!! :-)

  2. I tried doing a needlepoint stocking with grand plans of doing everyone but didn't get much past the name (another UFO in my craft closet). Luckily I still had my origal store bought ones on standby!
