Sarah James at Instructables made this expandable stocking!

This is the Christmas stocking you’ve been waiting for! Make it yourself to reflect how naughty or nice you’ve been. Hang it in its most compact zipped-up stage to appear modest and humble. Unzip it to lengthen, section by section, until you have the stocking of your dreams! Then make sure to write Santa a very nice letter to let him know you’ve been good enough this year to fill it to the brim.
