A pattern costs little money and many times you can sew your own stocking for much cheaper than you can purchase one at a store.
Christmas stocking patterns are available in all sorts of styles, including personalized Christmas stockings, Victorian Christmas style patterns, and traditional patterns, all the way to whimsical and wild. What's so fantastic about using a pattern to create your own Christmas stocking is that you get to use your own ideas and vision to sew what will surely become a much-loved Christmas display year after year.
Of course if you prefer a ready made stocking, there are many choices available in stores and online at Bronners.com, and they can be personalized for you.
Once you have purchased or made your own stocking, don't forget to get a stocking holder to display your new decoration. Stocking holders come in a variety of great themes, including nativity scenes.
