Rag Stockings


When I told my husband that I wanted to make our stockings, his only request was that they be BIG! So BIG they are! :) (better for stuffing!) I made the first three stockings six years ago, when we only had our baby Rachel. From the get-go I decided to make them all different so that I wouldn't have the stress of buying enough fabric, or having a surprise child later on, and having to do a stocking that didn't match- so I eliminated that problem by just making them as the kids come! I love our stockings- and I especially love how you can tell how the styles of fabric have changed over only a few years! :) Mine is the not-so-cute red and green, my husbands favorite color is blue, so that is his, then it goes in order from our oldest daughter to our two younger boys.
I have saved the pattern so that with each kid I just have to make a new one. They are so fast, simple, and inexpensive to make.



If you would like a pattern, I will send it to you for $3 (to cover paper and shipping costs) I will cut it out of sturdy cardstock and I will mark the joining seams, and include basic instructions. Happy Holidays!!!

So Cute! I made my own Stockings as well:) I think it makes them more personal and you can make them any color and as BIG as you like! Im going to have to make that sign! I NEVER have a place to hang my stockings and i think this is the ticket:)

Merry Christmas:)
