I saw this stocking idea on HGTV. I thought it would be a really cute package idea for gifts. I traced one of the stockings I have hanging in my house for the shape onto two pieces of burlap and cut it out. I sewed them together, left the raw edge showing, and put a little muslim ruffle at the top along with a small loop of fabric for hanging. I thought about painting on an initial, but sometimes it's fun to regift packaging...or, uh...so I hear. I'd love to try this out again with some old coffee burlap bags with printing per the original idea. This little guy got filled up with some gifts, and it now has a new home.
