This Super Sweet Gingerbread Stockings are good for decoration purposes as they are too small to use to drop Santa's Christmas presents. These will look great hanging on your Christmas tree or hanging by the fireplace. Those gingerbread men provide the Christmas spirit to not only to the stockings but to the whole home as well.

Since Im planning to do a few craft fairs next November/December, I decided to keep working on Christmas items right through the new year. I love the gingerbread appliqu and the striped trim on top. These are just the right sizenot too big and not too small. I may add some ribbon bells to the appliqus to make them extra special.

This"Super Sweet Gingerbread Stocking" is such a classic looking Christmas stocking. I like that it is a suitable project for inexperienced crocheters. It's only fair that they get to create something fun, too! I wish I had Christmas colors around the house so I could work up one of these today.
