I wanted to do the same thing for my family. However, my grandmother was a very talented seamstress, and I am a ding-dong with a sewing machine. Hilarity, and an obscene amount of swearing, ensue whenever I bring it out.
Here's a stocking I made a few years ago pre-kids:
It's shape and size are based on the stockings my grandmother made 25+ years ago. Without having a copy of that pattern on hand, I used my red star stocking as a basis for the new stockings.
As I said, I am no master seamstress. Rather than tracing the stocking onto pattern paper, and then pinning it to new fabric as I should do, I just put the old stocking on the new fabric, and cut around it. Whatever works, right?
This is the Little Guy's new stocking:
Here's a close-up picture of the material:
Baby Girl also got a stocking.
It's hard to tell, but the main color is a hot/salmon pink. Here's a close-up picture of her stocking's material:
The Big Guy got a new stocking, too. When I made the original stocking pre-kids, I actually made two that matched. Since I had the sewing machine out and the kids were getting personalized stockings, the Big Guy requested one of his own.
Here's a close-up picture of the material I used:
While the mantel is not fully decorated, all the stockings were hung with care by our very friendly neighborhood Spiderman...
...who has informed me that he is, in fact, a reindeer. And when Spiderman puts on his reindeer antlers, you know Christmas is right around the corner.
