Each Christmas after the birth of one of our children, I have made the precious new addition a sweet little felt stocking. To make these, I cut two stocking shapes out of felt.
Then I blanket stitch (by hand) with white embroidery floss around the outside. Then I take a purchased doily and cut it in half diagonally and stitch it around the top of the stocking. I also attach a ribbon loop for hanging.
And to finish it off, I embroider the little one's name with gold embroidery floss. These are some of my favorite ornaments on our Christmas tree!!!
