I wanted to make some stocking to put in my basement that matched the style of my tree and my red ones just didn't fit the bill. I made these three out of painters drop clothe, you can buy it at Lowes or Home Depot it's really inexpensive. I made my own pattern and sewed them up. Added some burlap and stained wood letters-for my three sons names. wrapped twine around the letters and added some buttons and greenery. easy peasy!
I have never had a place to put my Nativity and now I do. I didn't have a stable to put it in so I made a crate and stained it. TaDa!! a stable!
