I seem to have a thing for accumulating Christmas stockings. I would need a mighty wide fireplace to hang all that I have.
These little knit stockings with the cute graphics are a favorite. The larger ones have drawstrings at the top. They are about 12 inches long. The shorter ones are about 5 inches.
The front of this stocking is a clear plastic and the faces are raised. When you put items in the stocking you can see them through the plastic...no guessing to what this stocking would hold Christmas morning.A felt stocking with snowman graphics. Two sided as well.
I really like these simple stockings with the charming old time graphics. This pair belonged to Leah and Kenny. More of my favorite style of stocking. These felt stockings are a bit smaller and about 7 inches tall. The two on the left are the same stocking, one was just printed with colored ink.
I wish I could say I had a cuter stocking when I was a kid. This was mine. It really is quite bedraggled looking. I used to get up in the middle of the night and go through my stocking as well as my brothers and sisters. My stocking was really tricky because I had to be really quiet and it has those darn jingle bells sewn across the top. I used to bundle them all in my hand to muffle the noise as I rifled through the stocking...I did not want to wake up the house. My brother and sister did not have bells on their stockings so it was easy to look through theirs.
If you have an idea for a future collection challenge leave me a comment and finish the sentence "Show me your collection of ____." With the holidays here I think the month of December will have that Christmas flair.
