This whimsical Christmas stocking is sooo awesome! Kathleen from Grosgrain shares a free pattern and tutorial for making one. She designed the stocking to be large enough (and wide enough at the top) to accommodate larger stocking stuffer presents. The construction is more involved that most stockings you sew, but the long curly toe and flared shape are worth it. Go to Grosgrain for the pattern and tute.
