I love how Christmas Stockings are decorative and really do add cheer to your Christmas decor, but are also used for Christmas family traditions. I always hang our Christmas Stockings on the wall or the stairway railing. Then on Christmas Eve I fill them with small gifts and treats for my three children and pop them under the Christmas tree.
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.
