These two snow-people look so happy.
And here's another happy guy, Leo, visiting Santa Claus last Saturday. The Lab Rescue of NC group does a fundraiser "Picture with Santa" that we love to attend.
Edited on Friday, Dec. 20th:
I originally made this pattern of stockings back in 2009, blogged about it here. It was from an on-line pattern I found at http://everydaycelebrate.blogspot.com/2008/11/tutorial-lined-stocking.html.
The stockings are so easy--you cut out four pieces, pile them one layer on top of the other, then sew the edges, and turn. The cuff around the top is sewn on separately. The snowman faces were my personal touch, but you could easily adapt to whatever you wanted to create.
