Christmas stocking

After I finished my first Christmas stocking, I decided that it looked great, but it looked bland. It needed that extra SOMETHING. So I figured I'd use one of our Christmas decorations to jazz it up:

I took this picture before I sewed it onto the front of the stocking. It looked great, and made that Christmassy jingle bell sound once it was done! In all, the stocking took me about 4 hours to complete. Creating the heel was the challenging part. I was originally going to use white for the trim at the top but didn't have any; just the green. I think I like it with the green better anyway. It turns out that a friend had watched me knit the stocking and had felt the same way about it: it looked nice; but once I added the bells, that made it SING. He liked it so much that he bought it from me!


  1. Nice finishing touch! How much did you sell the stocking for?

  2. Can you post the directions on how to make it? It's so cool!
