This year I had three neices, and I made them all stockings.
The first stocking I used tulle for trim, because I liked how that turned out last year, plus it goes with that family.
But then I completely dreaded making more stockings, eventhough I love tulle, I couldn't handle anymore gathering. I still two more nieces that need some stockings, plus two more on top of that for my parent's collection of grandchild stockings (they only had two granddaughters, the third niece belongs to a different grandma.) So Instead I went to the store and bought rick rack.
They all get scotty dog stockings, because I was at the store with my mom when I picked out the material, and she likes scotty dogs.
