Christmas Stockings – Retro Style

Back in the day, when Christmas wasn’t quite so commercialised, one would receive a Christmas Stocking and one other gift.

Life was simple and uncomplicated and many of my peers have memories of this Christmas Stocking : cardboard backing with material netting and containing a comic, a packet of lollies and a few bits and bobs such as whistles, yo-yos, toy car, tin clickers.

With too much time on my hands, I decided that a gluten free Christmas Stocking could be easily (if not roughly) made.

A cookbook, lollies, caramels, chocolates and there it is, my version of a gluten free Christmas Stocking.

So if you are still looking for inspiration: gluten free or otherwise, then put together a few items, sew together cardboard and a scrap of curtain material and personalise a Christmas Stocking gift.
