Xmas Stockings!

I made these little xmas stockings for the kids.... Not sure what they will make of them because the youngest is 11years old. A few years ago i made xmas stockings out of fabric and gave all the grandchildren one. I wasn't sure it would go down too well with my then 19 year old grandaughter. When i mentioned that she nearly didn't get  a stocking she was quite forthright about it and stated that she would have been very upset if she was left out. The youngest who was 9 at that time, got a couple of tennis balls in his beside all the other little goodies that were in there, he gave it to mum to take care of and came back every few minutes to see if she still had it with her. So nice to think that they can still get enjoyment out of the little things in life like a xmas stocking filled with sweets and other little goodies... It was quite heartening to see them all sitting around watching a dvd with stockings in hand, munching on the sweets...
