The good thing is that I think these cost me less than comparably priced stockings and I've had a lot of fun making them over the past month.
I did take some clues from the brilliant Jonathan Adler and embraced a "Happy Chic" ethos during creation.
The three results. I just loved these birds and so did my son. He kept stealing them to play with until I attached them to the felt. After that, I had to hide the stocking until Christmas Eve.
A more masculine look, I was inspired by a stocking I saw at Garnet Hill, but I tried to put a new spin on the design. I changed it from country-based to something a little more modern.
