This Christmas, I sold 25 stockings. I really enjoyed picking out the sweaters to use for each set and the whole production of cutting and sewing. Every time one sold, I felt so happy that someone had chosen my creation. The idea that they will look forward to seeing their own special stocking come out of the decorations box each year, feels good.
Today, I sewed the last of those stockings. It was requested just 2 days before the holiday to be made after. This is a next year's stocking.
Here are pictures of the pieces cut out. I usually make the back plain, he wanted it striped on both sides and a fold down cuff. There will be 2 pom-poms at the hanging edge by the end of the evening.

Some still need to be cut in half.

|Ta-da! Nearly finished and ready for pom-poms.|
The pocket is sized for index cards.
