A long while back (September maybe?) I posted my first Christmas stocking that still needed to be embellised. Well, 3 months later I finally completed our stockings and got them hung up! I started to add all kinds of little embellishments but soon realized that they looked much better with a simple motif in the center of each stocking. My original plan was to embroider our names but when I tried it looked TERRIBLE so I went to the craft store and got these letter blocks... I think they look cute :)

Thanks for looking!

They are beautiful! Years ago I dated I guy and his mom made me a crochet stocking, it's beautiful. I never got around to asking her for the pattern for it though. I wish I had it.

I used this pattern (http://cache.lionbrand.com/patterns/cjif-stockingTree.html?noImages=). The other 2 motifs I got from crochetpatterncentral.com. :)

Wow! What beautiful stockings!! I just noticed each one matches its hanger too. Your color choices and embellishments are lovely. How did you attach the cording? It looks great!

To attach the cording I just used some gold embroidery floss. I basically whip stitched the whole thing. Really, I could have used any thread I wanted because the floss disappeared into the creases of the cording :)
