"Over the years I have made several of these. Speaking from personal experience, I can tell you that these boxes -when used in the pictured position- are not strong enough on their own to hold very many books or magazines for very long. Eventually they will sag and become an eyesore. Preventing the eyesore from happening is simple - turn the boxes on their side once they are completed, and Voila! They are an EXCELLENT way to wrangle in all that clutter and chaos we often find throughout our home and office. There is also another way to make them strong and that is to REINFORCE THEM. Personally, I like to do this when I need to use the boxes for flimsier items like loose papers that have a tendency to curl on their edges if stored on their sides or when not packed tightly. Reinforcing the boxes means you can put a lot more weight into them even while they are laying flat like they are in the picture. I reinforce my boxes with a very thin wood that can be purchased at almost any hardware store - it is called Louon (my spelling is probably off but it is pronounced LEW-ON). It is very cost-effective and extremely easy to work with. Add to this that it is VERY VERSATILE and you have a great solution to making even very flimsy projects much more stable. I hope this helps! BTW USPS boxes are legal to use BUT ONLY if you PURCHASED them OR they are USED. IF you are thinking about using new boxes that were FREE from the USPS Priority Mail Services - then you would be breaking the law. New FREE Boxes MUST be used only for Mail. Boxes that are Purchased or Used should be OK."

How cute! I really adore this stocking! It's great that it's not fire engine red and grass green too. I like that the project is a beginner level one. I can see where some variation would be fun...maybe two red stripes and then a green one, etc. They'll all look great hanging from my mantel place this Christmas season!

I like the way the colors look like dots. I guess that is what crochet 'does'.

Love crocheting and want to make the stocking.

love the yarn

I want to make this.

I love the look of this stocking.

I can't wait to try making this stocking.

Great pattern for those that are just beginning but are ready for something a little more daring!

I'm happy to see a stocking pattern for crochet! So cute too.

I love this stocking, and I like that it is for beginners. Thank you for the pattern

This is a darling pattern and I can't wait to start making a stocking for Xmas!

I will be tryng this pattern for stockings for my family. I love the look.

I saved this pattern and plan to make it soon! Great simple but colorful design!

I really like the looks of this stocking. I need to make 5 different one before Christmas this will definately be one of them.

Can't wait to go get yarn to get started.

I love this striped stockomg pattern and the yarn that goes witth it

I think I will try this year.

I've never crocheted (or knitted) a christmas stocking before. Need to give it a try.

Yarn! Did somebody say yarn? I have some lovely yarn to knit stockings, socks, etc, but not for crochet-yet.

Adorable! I am going to make one this year. Thanks for the pattern!

I will definitely be trying this for Christmas this year!

It's nice to see a beginner pattern that looks both easy and interesting. This will look good made up in a variety of color combos

Love this easy to follow pattern. Can't wait to make this lovely stocking.

Thank you for this great tutorial! I am new to crochet so I might end up knitting my stockings instead, but this pattern looks great.

I am a beginner so it will have to be a fairly straightforward pattern. I like solid colors and also non traditional colors like taupes and purples.

Ooooh can't wait to make this stocking for my new grandbaby.

I have a stocking pattern that I have been doing since the early 80's. I think it's time to make a change up. This pattern is really pretty and looks easy to do I also love that shade of green. Good Luck Everyone !

OH wow this is something as a beginner I could make for all my grandchildren(6 of them) the boys would love it the girls a different colour. Love the instructions thank you so easy to follow for any one just starting as well. I'm going to practice incase I win.
