I've never made a stocking before. My mom made mine when I was a kid. She made my brother one too. She's a fabulous seamstress/artist. She has now made each of her six grandkids a stocking. They are all so much more detailed and glitzy than ours as kids were (she must have had more time or something).
Just the other day, a friend of ours asked if I could make a secret stocking for his wife for Christmas. The first idea that came to me was RUFFLES. Of course it would have to have ruffles. This one here isn't for her, it's for the next Christmas boutique I'll be at next weekend. I'm planning on making a few more to sell at the boutique before I start in on the custom stocking for our friend. I can't believe I've never made a stocking before.
