Activity and Exchanges 2017-2018

CHRISTMAS STOCKING PROJECT

For our 2017 Christmas activity, we have chosen to make a Christmas stocking. The stockings will be donated to the North Texas Youth Connection and Crisis Center. If we have enough, we will also give to other shelters and/or seniors. 

There will be a prize drawing(s). For every stocking you make, you get your name entered in the drawing. The more you make the more chances you have to win. You may also choose to buy a plain stocking and decorate it. (No glitter, please).

In order for all the children to receive a similar stocking, they must all be made to the same size range. Please keep the width about 8-9 inches and the length about 15-16 inches. You may use cotton fabric or felt and it may be pieced or appliqu├ęd. The style of your stocking can vary.

Below are some links for patterns and ideas. You may also choose a different pattern but please keep it in the size range. Have fun!
