But I finally scored a small one that had holes and was badly stained. I made a little pattern of a stocking that I traced out of my daughter's coloring book! Then I convinced a friend with sewing skills to make these mini stockings. We were able to do 9 in all. Three for her, three went to another friend and three I kept. I must confess, I wish I had kept them all to hang on a small tree or somehow re-work for place cards!

So, if you happen to have a few yards of favorite fabric or an old tablecloth you love...create something special!
