My BIL is currently serving a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I wanted to surprise him with a fun Christmas gift. I came across this blog and I thought it was a cute stocking. I decided I was going to make it. So I started out with a little boy's white shirt and black felt.
I used a regular stocking for a pattern for our missionary stocking. It took me about 10 minutes to sew it together and then added an old tie of my son's. Here's the results.
I can't wait to fill it with his favorite candies and notes and pictures from our family.
