Christmas stockings! It’s that time of year that we start thinking about Christmas stockings. Do you put yours out on Christmas Eve, or do you hang them up for the whole Christmas season? We are privileged to have some beautiful Christmas stockings made by the grandparents of the Imagine. Make. Believe children, so we usually hang ours up at the beginning of December, when we put up the Christmas tree and other decorations, so that we can enjoy them for a whole month. Val Laird and her secretly crafty husband (he’s done some amazing cross-stitches in the last decade or two), and Janelle have all contributed to these stockings in different ways, which makes them all the more special.
Depending on the stocking, the cross-stitch and applique patterns were either designed by someone else (unfortunately we don’t remember the designer’s details as these were made years ago), or were patterns that inspired us to create what we have above. We did blank out the beautifully embroidered names too, for privacy reasons.
So the next question is… what gifts do you put in your Christmas stockings? If you are stuck for suggestions, we have one for you! It’s our Imagine. Make. Believe children’s digital activity magazine and it is a great stocking stuffer idea.
