Operation Santa filled and distributed 42,400 stockings to deployed Armed Forces in 2009. Volunteers in 2009 crafted 50,00 stockings.
I used some scraps and some smaller pieces of yardage to make 11 stockings in an assembly line.
The pattern is easy to print and use: one simple seam, a quick hem at the top, and an optional hanging loop. Nothing can be easier to make. Cuffs are also optional. November 1, 2010 is the deadline.
You can watch a video of Santa's elves on the Citizen Sam website that may make motivate you to make a stocking or two from some of your scraps.
Please note that Citizen Sam has other projects listed on their site, too.
