How do you figure? depends what direction you are going.

I agree there is no right or wrong way.

Don't think it matters ! I've seen them face left or right, sometimes towards each other too

I don't think it matters much. Have made them both ways. As long as they aren't empty on Christmas morning the recipients won't care either

Some of the fabric I bought was kind of pricey and I want to use it only on the front of the stockings. Help?
My first reaction was -
foot down - top up -
and then I read the rest of the question -

Perhaps you can find a coordinating fabric for the "other side" - and then either side would be "special"

I don't think it matters, but when I made 22 "Cowboy Boot" stockings a few years back they were all facing left.

Hmmm..that's something I have never given a thought, but for some reason I hang mine with toes pointing left, but feet can go in any direction. If in doubt that I think romanojg has the solution of putting designs on both sides.
