Stocking Vote

Ok, so I could never find stockings I liked (or was willing to pay for, would be more accurate), so I decided to make some.

I have so far made one.  It’s really plain and simple like this:

But now that I’ve made it, I’m second guessing myself.  Do you like it?  Is it too plain?  Too simple?  Look too much like a baseball?

I thought about making separate ones for the girls(with a scalloped edge at the top) and the boys(with white rick-a-rack on the top), kind of like this:

So…what do you think?

    They are cute! I found my self in the same dilemma this year. To solve it, I purchased two felt stocking at Dollar General for two dollars a piece. I figure they can go for a couple of years until I decide or the kids grow out of them. One has a snowman and the other a reindeer. They alternate colors and are quite sufficient this year at least.

    Very cute but I have to admit my first thought was “Oh this must be for a kid who loves baseball.” For some reason, I’ve acquired an unhealthy affection for ball fringe, so I say get yourself some and sew it onto the cuff.

    Then go ahead and make a set of 4 for me while you’re at it. 🙂
