Stockings are a must for your Christmas decorations.
There are some lovely ones and some fun ones, I am hoping to show you some simple home made ones for you to make yourself and use year after year.

Liam has one we bought for his first Christmas
 and I also crossed stitched one for him through a long period when he was ill.
 It took many, many, many hours!

I will post some pics as I think the crossed stitched one is fantastic, there is so much detail.

I love this easy make felt elf boot Christmas stocking free downloadable patterns from family fun.

and this ballet slipper Christmas stocking

And for all you pet lovers out there a fur paw print stocking

Why not theme the gifts in your stockings...

All arts and craft items - pens, colouring book, paints and brushes, glue, stickers, sequins.
All car themed items - toy car, car shaped chocolates, car shaped pen, flash cars calender.
All Barbie themed items - a Barbie doll, some barbie clothes, Barbie pen and pencil.
All music themed items - a CD, a download i tunes voucher, a music magazine, favourite artist calender.

You don't even need to wrap these items as they are tucked away in their stocking.

Oooo I wish I could knit, this book looks fab
I love knitted Christmas stockings

I love thought of hanging long chunky bright socks at the end of your bed at night. 
It's as simple as that!!!

Or you could dress up some plain chunky socks, with lace, felt, beads etc

You get the idea, now let your imagination run wild!!!
