Or but beware customs charges if buying from a non-EU seller.

We use my dad's old football socks! They are much better than anything you can buy because they're stretchy so you have to pull each present out separately. Presume you could buy men's football socks at any sports shop.

Stitch them?
They may have grown up and left home by the time you've finished, but they are beautiful smile

Gosh, this one is a bargain:

You can make felt ones very easily even if you're not much of a sewer?

haven't made DD's yet (she was 13 days old on christmas day last year, i thought it could wait! grin)

Just bought my kids one each from here, they arrived the other day and are absolutely lovely

Those embroidered ones are gorgeous but you can get them ready stitched for much less at Land End.

You have to put stocking into the search box as there's no category for them, bit odd but there you go.

I've got three and another on order for ds3 who isn't due till January but you never know smile

I also made or customised our own for the older boys, They have got two as the embroidered ones are a bit small iykwim.

Not sure if this works

ChippyMinton Thu 27-Sep-12 17:26:53

Ed, those are lovely smile

I bought sack for DD's presents from santa.

MIL made a beautiful stocking for DD like this

I would have loved to have knitted her one like this though

I can offer no solutions sadly, only another question if I may gatecrash?

I would love to buy some knitted Christmas stockings for my Ds's. When I grew up my brother and I used to pick out a woollen sock from Dad's drawer (and spend ages choosing the biggest, stretchiest ones we could find to accommodate the most presents!) and the sight of seeing it all bulging with presents the next morning was just so exciting. So I'd like to have woollen or knitted stockings for my boys as I think they look more exciting once filled, than fabric ones. These would be heirloom stockings (in my dreams my boys will grow up respecting these memories and passing them on to their kids!!) so don't mind spending a bit.

Any thoughts?

Fresh01 Thu 27-Sep-12 21:25:06

Some lovely stocking links, thank you.

ChippyMinton, making them would be a lovely idea but with 4 kids under 7 and x-mas only 12 weeks away............

IWanToGoToThere, funny you should mention the knitted ones as I had a knitted stocking as a child.

Off to go look at the links - DH thinks I have gone mad thinking about x-mas this early!

I made my boys one each out of an old net curtain, following a family tradition because I had a net curtain stocking growing up.

BigFatLegsInWoolyTIghts Thu 27-Sep-12 21:34:20

Those sacks are gorgeous!

Pottery Barn Kids has gorgeous ones. Regular Pottery Barn ones are lovely too.

I am thinking about getting the Fair Isle ones.

Oh wow, those Pottery Barn ones are amazing!

Ooh, I really like the Pottery Barn ones. I think I might go for the quilted ones.
