I decided to make some new stockings this year. I had two matching ones, but needed a third!
This project does require the use of a sewing machine, but it's so SIMPLE that anyone could do it!!
Lets get started:
First, fold your fabric in half. Then, trace any old stocking - or if you want to free-hand... Go for it! (Also, those slippers? My new obsession.)
I traced all three at once!
Next, cut around each stocking, leaving about an inch between the line and where you cut. The cut line doesn't need to be pretty or neat at all - this will eventually be on the inside. Remember that you've got two layers still!
I added a ribbon with ruffled fabric to mine. The ribbon is cut at the width of the stocking, and the fabric to be ruffled is about twice the width.
I sewed the ribbon and fabric together, gathering the fabric as I went.
You can fold the tops of both sides down to create a smoother top (rather than a fringey, cut roughly edge!) Place your ribbon in the INSIDE of the two stocking pieces.
This is what it looks like with the ribbon in between. Next, sew your edges from one side of the top, down and around to the other side of the top. Again, this doesn't need to be perfect by any means!
Flip your stocking inside out and it should look something like this!
Add a little loop to hang it and decorate with any other embellishments (glitter glue, sequence, ribbon, etc!).
Show us your creations!
