Over the years, designer Elaine Waldschmitt has had trouble getting her "stocking stuffers" to fit into her son's stockings on Christmas Eve. This pattern was born of her frustrations! Not only is this stocking roomy, but Elaine gives you the option of a side zipper that won't even be noticed until it's time for stuffing ( & receiving!). Any 6" block can be used in this pattern & Elaine has provided directions for two blocks to get you started. Full-size stocking template as well as complete alphabet included. Finished size is 16" x 22".
