This is a picture of our childhood stockings. We don't use them as stockings anymore, just as decorations.
This is Chris's stocking. The flap folds down and you fill both legs. Chris's Mom made it for him when he was little.
This one is mine. My aunts mother made it for me when I was a little girl.
I used to carry this one as a purse when I was younger. Old Gram (great grandmother) made it for me.
