Needlepoint Christmas Stocking
Christmas Needlepoint Stocking
A handmade Christmas gift, after all is said and done, has the most lasting memories of any Christmas gift, and one of those that are fantastic is a needlepoint Christmas stocking.
Very few things capture the heart of a loved one than the loving memories of the time spent creating a special Christmas stocking just for them.
You can either buy one, which can perform the same purpose as a needlepoint stocking which is made, as long as you make it in a personalized way. By that I mean it's the reason behind making or buying the stocking that counts as much as anything. So you can, as mentioned, create your own design or buy a needlepoint Christmas design to use to put on the stocking.
One positive thing about buying a needlepoint kit is everything you need to make the exact design is included, so attempting to find colors of thread and anything else needed to make the needlepoint stocking design is provided.
Even so, if you or someone you know has the skills to make a customized design for the one you want to create the Christmas stocking for, there's something about that which really makes a lasting impression.
Nonetheless, if you get a theme and design for a needlepoint Christmas stocking which really touches the one you're making it for, whether you make it or buy it, they'll remember it forever.

Beautiful Needlepoint Angel Christmas Stocking
This is a very nice needlepoint pattern and design for a Christmas stocking, and it is done in a way that I really like. First, the Christmas colors of green and red are blended very well, and the clothing of the angel, to me, stands out especially good.
The white wings and ribbon on the angel, which could have really been disruptive, work for me, while seeming to help the colors blend together good.

This was one of the better needlepoint stockings I've found, no matter what the subject matter was. And since it includes the nativity, it's especially nice.
