When Brittany was born, I made her a felt stocking. It quickly became a tradition. I made one for each of our kids, as well as for me and Rick. The stockings are faded and worn, but my kids will not let me make new ones for them. They want the ones that they remember from every Christmas of their lives. It's sweet that they are so sentimental.
Through the years, I have made some for family members, the kids of a few special friends, and for my mom. When Emma was born, I had to make her one, too! I couldn't find a felt kit, so I made her a needlepoint stocking. All in all, I have made 30!
