How about making custom stockings this year! This is one of the easiest sewing projects. You can use anything from fabric, burlap, felt, old sweaters. Above are two sites that offer a pattern and some ideas. I really like this project, I've wanted new stockings and don't want to spend the $$$ to buy them...especially since my colors always change at Christmas. This year I can make new ones on the cheap. I'm thinking felt, but I want to find a great color!
