Made several to put small grab bag gifts in. Really easy and cute! Found that you could either keep them flat, or stand them up!!

Easy and quick to make and super cute!!

Love these! They're not quite as small as the picture made them look, so I took out a few rows in "the leg" to shorten them. I'm making six of them to gift as silverware holders, I make one per day. Only takes about 4hrs. to make one! So beautiful!

How can you print this? I tried the print button that didnt work then I tried copy and paste and all taht pasted was the web address!

I can not find the Red Heart Holiday yarn.

@ddsr Red Heart Holiday yarn is a seasonal release...usually available from Oct-Dec. You can find it at our craft store, www.cutratecrafts.com. Thanks!

These are fantastic for the Holidays. I made the featured mini-Christmas Stockings last year for each of 16 relatives. I put them on packages and filled them with a little box design I also found on favecrafts and money. Afterwords the recipients hung them on their tree's. The pattern was easy and came out the perfect size. Thanks Red Heart, Birdie Gee

@agilholm Great idea! Thank you so much for sharing it with us!
