    So do we just use the shape of the stockings from any of the patterns? We can embellish or change it anyway we want? Just trying to clarify. 🙂

    I have made Christmas stockings for my family for over 50 years. My pattern inculdes sequins and hand sewing. Does the entry in the contest need to be modern or will one of my family stockings work?

    I was just starting to make about 25 new stockings this year. The old ones were really too small. Hmm. Looks like I’ll be making 26 instead.
