We have had these stockings for years. Red for girls, green for boys. I only see them once a year, so I've never felt the need for anything more fancy than that. This year Bayne requested to have his name put on his. Well, my little man has been very good this year, so I was happy to make that request happen.
I forgot to take before pictures of the stockings (I really need to get better about that!) and as usual, I only have my iPhone and not the best lighting, so the pictures aren't the best quality. Here is the finished product!

This is so easy to do and it doesn't require any sewing. Just an iron and some scissors. I used the computer to make a template for the letters. I just went into Word and found a cool font and printed the letters I needed in a large size.
Then you trace the letters in reverse on the back of heat bond (pictured below). Be sure to get the red, no- sew package. Get a piece of felt, any color you choose (I used white) and iron the heat bond letters to the back of the felt. After it cools, cut out the letters and peel off the paper backing and iron onto the stocking.
