Vintage Christmas Stocking Patterns, Revisited

I wrote about vintage felt Christmas stockings in a post back in December of 2008. I mentioned then that there were a couple of patterns I wanted. I already had McCalls 1830, which dates from 1953:

And I was so happy to find this one very recently, Simplicity 1803, which is from 1956. I just received it in the mail the other day:

McCalls 2271, dating from 1957, is one that I had already:

And Lori gave me this one for my birthday! McCalls 2177, from 1958:

So, um - I'll keep you posted on whether or not I actually manage to make any of them!
(I wouldn't hold your breath, if I were you.)
But, we'll see.

Such a great collection! I hope you make some if only because (selfishly!) I'd like to see them :-)

I've never seen any of these - they are GREAT! I love that tablecloth with the Merry Christmas script, but really, I love every single thing!

My aunt made stockings using the pattern with the argyle sock, women's lace boot, boy's cowboy boot and the regular stocking for my dad, mom, five brothers and me when I was a child. Most of my family have passed but I still hold onto them as they are my treasures. I LOVE that pattern. Such fond memories...thanks for sharing!
