Sewing Stockings for Soldiers

We have the opportunity to help the community in making 100 Christmas Stockings for the Forgotten Soldiers Organization.  They will be stuffing Christmas Cards inside them.  It is a last minute service crunch, as they need them by this Thursday.  If you're willing and able, we'd love some help.  If you need any material, please let me know.

We will be meeting at Candi's home on Monday, November 29th, at 2:30 p.m. if you'd like to work together in a group, or you can do it on your own and get it to me by Thursday.

The size specs are:
The stockings are going to be 9 3/4 " tall by 5 1/2" wide at top and 8 1/4 " wide on the foot, give or take some. These dimensions are the size before sewing them.

Let me know if you're able to help, and we'll look forward to your creations!
Happy Sewing!

Below is a sample of how to make a stocking.  It is just a suggestion...

  1. Thanks everyone for such a great effort... last minute! We made 140 stockings and 30 cards. I know the soldiers are going to be thrilled to get them. Their goal was to have 300 stockings made, and last year they sent over 650 cards. Thanks for contributing to such a worthy cause! - Candi
