Being Dutch, I've never had my own Christmas stocking. Then I met my hubby and he had one from when he was a kid. Then we had our son and he had one made for him while in the NICU just after he was born. It's a bit sad to see a mantel with just the 2 stockings. So I decided to take it upon myself to make us all matching ones using Fabricworm's tutorial. There is a 4th one there for our son who is due to be born mid January. He already has presents under the tree.
