#21- Christmas Stockings

Each year I intend to make stockings for us, but that's a project I've never started. Last year there were a few snow days right before Christmas (where we didn't work), so I took some Stocking Kits and adapted them for the pets. We don't get the pets much for Christmas, but we do try to fill their stockings with treats.

I need some input. Whenever my friends have a baby, I like to make them a Christmas stocking. You know, the old fashioned felt with beads and sequins. Usually, I make a Snowman design. I hope it will be the one they use each year.

And this year my dear friend Autumn had Ezra, and he's my Godson. I'd like to make a very special stocking for him, but I can't decide on a design. With a name like Ezra, you know he's going to be very cool- :).... I can't decide if I should do:

Winter Wonderland kind of theme, snowman, etc.
or

A Retro Space Shuttle/Astronaut theme that I could somehow make Christmas-y (maybe Santa is driving the Space Shuttle or is the Astronaut?) but it's just so adorable and so boyish
or

A Redwork Wee Stichwork Elf?

What do you think?

I vote for either the space shuttle or the redwork elf.
