Draft post by Shanon published by Gretchen, the mom who made the original stockings. Shannon made stockings for Peter, his family, Emmie and Jasper. I just happened to find a pic of Jasper’s stocking.

Update – Nov 2016 – I found all the pics that Shannon had taken for the stocking tutorial.

My mom made “patchwork” stockings for our family when we were very young and we’ve used them for almost 30 years now. They are very special because she used fabrics that had special meanings for each of us, and it’s wonderful to be able to point to each one and say “That was from a wall hanging in my nursery, and that was from the changing pad cover my mom made, and that was from one of her maternity dresses.” It’s very cool.

So this is a little late for this year, but maybe you are super motivated to make stuff for next year. Really, this is just a way for me to remember how I did it.
