Although this is part of our December Applique Blocks, it can be used any time you need a whimsical stocking and you can make it with or without the “cookie”. It was made to fit a 6″ x 6″ block but it can be enlarged or reduced to meet your needs. This could easily be turned into an ornament or felt cookies for a wee one’s pretend kitchen.
