Minor flaws, but still worth it
 from Montana,  Oct 22, 2010

This is a fun project to work on. The thread was a nightmare to separate, but once that part was finished it was much better and the stockings could be made pretty quickly. The kit is designed for the stockings to be made into flat ornaments rather than stockings you can actually put things in, which I didn't realize. I'm making mine into usable stockings to give as gifts to family this Christmas. Despite the minor flaws, this is a fun product that I would recommend to others.

Quite charming when done up
 from Bath, Maine,  Apr 23, 2011

I was a bit dismayed with sorting the threads. Distinguishing colors can be challenging and having enough cards to use one hole per color would be nice. You have to write your own color codes on the lines. I added the symbol too since the patterns are all by symbol. The patterns are not difficult but are easier to use if you can enlarge with a scanner or copier. I've only had time to stitch three so far but they are darling. I will make usable stockings instead of the strictly ornamental per the directions. I pre cut all the aida cloth first to be sure I had enough. I hope I have enough of each thread color. I'm quite frugal with my thread but it might be difficult to get a match if you run out. The order shipped quickly and I was pleased with the service. Happy Stitching!

Cute little stockings
 from Missouri,  Apr 12, 2011

These stockings are really cute and stitch up rather quickly. They do take a little time to assemble once stitched. My only complaint is that the thread was rather difficult to sort and a couple of colors were missing from the kit. Also I ran out of one color of thread before completing all of the stockings. They were also stingy with the aida fabric. There is barely enough.

Decent
 from Denver, CO,  Nov 22, 2010

Note that the stockings do not come pre-cut: you receive one large piece of Aida and the same of red felt that you ned to measure and cut yourself. Not a big deal, just thought I should mention it. You will need cardboard and cotton batting to complete the stockings - was a bit surprised the latter wasn't included but, again, this isn't really a big deal. I was disappointed that the kit was missing a couple of colored yarns. Called the Customer Service number for the company, and spoke to a pretty snotty representative. They're mailing me the yarns. I haven't started the stockings yet but I know they'll look great. Instructions are clear and comprehensive. Great value for money.

You'll love this
 from El Paso TX,  Jul 10, 2013

I just love the designs. The working charts are clear and easy to follow. I do copy them so I can mark off progress as I go and not mangle the master sheets. I do wish the finishing directions were more clear and the amount of fabric more generous. The threads are a royal pain to separate. Be sure to work in the daylight because some of the colors are very similar and very difficult to distinguish in artificial light. Polyester fiber fill should be included. I had to buy monstrous amount!

Cross-Stitch Stockings
 from Duluth, MN,  Dec 21, 2010

It took quite a long time to get my order, however the product arrived in perfect condition, no damage at all. The kit contained everything that they stated it contained and I would definitely recommend this product. Overstock also was the least expensive place I could get this kit. Overall I am extremely happy and satisfied.

Mittens, mittens, and more mittens.
 from Buford, Georgia,  Nov 30, 2010

I have been in stitches ever since I got this kit. I was looking for something special to give to my co-workers this Christmas and I have it solved in one special package. I thank you. I am getting the joy of making these little cuties, and my friends will be getting something unique and from my heart. Couldn't ask for anything better.
