Here are my stockings. I pictured them both together so you can get the full effect. Thanks for all those who posted in my other thread when I was worried about having to frog it. I suppose in the future, could duplicate stitch green santa but using those 4 colors, the only other option would be black but that wouldn't be any better, I don't think..

on to the pic!

Thanks, guys!
Does anyone know if I could possibly line these? I was thinking of making some for the other family members but some are kids and I don't want them getting their goodies snagged on the yarn inside. A cloth lining might be good for that. Any ideas?

Those are impressive. I'm sure there's a way to line them, but I'm horrible at such things. Someone here has advice in that regard though I'm sure.

Trace your stocking on a paper bag, grocery size, (if you can find one!) or use brown kraft paper. Use pencil for tracing as you don't want any ink to get on the stocking. On paper pattern add 5/8" all around for your seam. Add more (1 1/2 to 2 inches) to the top as you will be folding over the lining to sew to the top of the stocking. Cut out the pattern, pin to lining fabric (I'd use medium weight lining fabric...shiny fabric), cut 2 pieces of fabric, then sew a 5/8" seam, except for top. Put the lining as is into stocking (wrong side of lining to wrong side of stocking), adjust to fit into toe, etc., fold fabric lining at top to inside (right side of lining to wrong side of lining) and using small stitches sew to top of stocking. If you're brave you could machine sew the lining to the stocking; otherwise, use a lot of small hand stitches and avoid anything too heavy in the stocking. I made quilted stockings for my children and instead of hanging them when full would put them on the floor next to their gifts to avoid stress on the hanging loops.

If you have any questions feel free to ask. I'm so used to doing things like this and may overlook something in the telling.

Hope this is what you meant by "Any ideas?" :aww:
