Easy to make Stocking

It's my son's first Christmas so he needed a stocking.  Growing up we had a tradition that we used the same stockings every year and I still use it.  Now as a mother, I love having that memory growing up and would love my kids to have the same memory also then they are all the same size and I don't have to hear about who has a bigger stocking and who doesn't ;)  I bought some velvet to use for this stocking.

I forgot to take a picture before I cut it out, but I used my stocking as a pattern cutting bigger than the actual stocking allowing for a seam allowance.  I cut 2 pieces.

Then I cut some trim the same width as the stocking.

I made a little hem around the top of both pieces.

Then I sewed on the trim to what side I wanted to be the front of the stocking.

I made a tube and folded it in half creating a loop to hang the stocking off of.  Then I placed both pieces right sides together and sewed them together.

I sewed the heel and toe of the stocking twice to give it extra support.

Flip it outside out and voila!! Your easy to make stocking.  I then used puffy paint and wrote my son's name on the stocking.

  1. I love the fabric you used for this stocking! Ya know, I just made one out of an old sweater and didn't even think to re-inforce the toe/foot part! Good idea! And, I just became a new follower of your blog. :D

  2. I loved the stocking my mom made for me when I was little I'll have to check to see if she still has it somewhere I'd love you to add it to what we wore and made party over at
