Christmas stockings are a wonderful way to add cheer to your holiday decor and create lasting family traditions.
Since I have never had a home with a fireplace, oh how I would love one at Christmastime, I hang our stockings on the wall or the stairway railing. Then late on Christmas Eve fill them with small gifts and treats for my children and place them under the Christmas tree.
To help you create your own stockings, I’m offering a free copy of my Christmas Stocking Pattern in my Free Pattern Library HERE. Get yours today and start your own holiday tradition!
I recommend using 100% quilting cotton for this project. I used the fun and festive Cozy & Magical fabric by Maureen Cracknell of Art Gallery Fabrics, purchased from my local quilting store Pennington Quilt Works. For the cuff and backing, I used a metallic quilting cotton from Joann.
