I wanted to get Tom a Christmas stocking. We had just bought a house so we had agreed on just getting each other some small gifts to put in a stocking. I've had my stocking for as long as I can remember. We looked in a lot of shops but I couldn't find anything half decent that wouldn't fall apart the first use or leave glitter everywhere. Then I remembered I could sew so I went through my boxes of fabric and found some left over polar fleece, some red drill and some white embroidery cotton. I copied the shape of my current stocking and made us a set of matching one.
