If you are ever looking for a good idea or something new in crafting go you Martha Stewart’s site and just type in what you are looking for and I guarantee that you will find something that interests you. I found these adorable Christmas stockings that include the direction and the template. I think they are sweet and hope these inspire you.
Brimming with gifts on Christmas morning, beautifully decorated handmade stockings are a delight to wake up to. But they can do much more than hold gifts: Miniature boot-shaped stockings can be used as ornaments for the tree or to decorate a package — they can even be turned into Advent calendars. Choose the pattern for your stocking from among our templates, or create your own.
Cheerful wool-felt birds and luxurious mohair and cashmere fabrics make these stockings as special as the gifts inside them.
