Just as I anticipated, making these stockings is addictive! I’ll put the Christmas checks or gift cards in them for the families this year, so it’s fun to create the stockings with the recipients in mind. (I’m thinking of including color-coordinated candy sticks, if I can find them at our wonderful local candy store. I’ll be they’ve never been asked to match a paper project!) I hope the stockings will become keepsakes, but you know how that sometimes goes.
This one will be for our granddaughter in high school. Now I must start thinking about more masculine stockings, since we have 4:3 grandsons to granddaughters.
BTW, in order to curve the scallop punched edges, I trimmed them so there was only about 1/4″ of unpunched edge left, then snipped toward the scallops. I figured that out after fighting with the heel piece. The toe worked beautifully.
