I used the template from this stocking pattern for the shape of my stockings. I felt like it took me forever to find a template that I liked, and I didn't want to try again to draw one I liked (I've only drawn about 4 in years passed). And, the stockings that my kids have are Whoville stockings from the Grinch that Stole Christmas, so using them as a template seemed kind of silly.
With these stockings I simply free-motion quilted around the pattern on the fabric. The back of all three is the same blue and white stripe.
