Christmas Stocking Production Line

I really want to make everyone in the family (including our furry family members) a Christmas stocking with their name embroidered on the cuff. Lots more to go! Of course, I don't have any Christmas fabric (not a big fan of most of it) and I wanted them to be just a little bit more modern.
Straight line quilting (all these stockings are forcing me to get better with straight lines)!
I cut a 12" strip, width of the fabric and quilted it with just the batting, no backing. (I plan on lining the stockings.) Then I cut out the stocking from a pattern I drew free hand on a paper grocery bag. 

What do you all thing about the brown stocking? Will it work? I was thinking a pink cuff! 

Color Me Modern Christmas!
