2019 Pojagi Christmas Countdown – Korean Sock Ornament

Korean sock ornament hanging in tree with title.

Hanging stockings to fill with presents (or oranges, coal, etc.) is not a Korean tradition. If it was, however, it would probably be shaped like this.

This is a traditional Korean sock shape, and is the type of sock sometimes still worn with hanbok.

All you need to make it is some scraps of fabric, some stuffing and a bit of string or cord to hang it.
