I used the same patterns for the new stockings (except I clearly made a new Santa) but all the pieces are made out of felt and hand stitched on.
I hung them on the mantle exactly the way my Mother always did, a piece of red yarn (only I used red ribbon) strung across the mantle and the stockings pinned on. I wouldn't mind some actual ornament holders one day but for now ribbon and pins works great.
Here's a close up of each.
I love the way they turned out but I'm really kicking myself for not putting Mom and Dad instead of Brad and Laura. I don't know what I was thinking but I'm not unpicking the hand stitching, maybe next year.
I think Catie's is clearly the cutest, that Santa is awesome. She looked at it and said, "Clause!"
