Since this is my first Christmas as a married lady, I had to make stockings for Roland & myself. Rachel and I got some lessons from our mom, and here are the results!

Felt stocking are pretty simple and so fun to personalize. Here are the basic steps.

1. Cut out two pieces of red felt in the stocking shape, and two pieces of white felt for the rim. Make sure the white felt completely covers the edges of the red felt.

2. Embroider the name. We used a twisted chain stitch for this part. First we used a chalky pink pencil to lightly make guide lines, and then stitched away! This part took the longest.

3. Next, we cut out felt shapes for the stocking and sewed them onto one of the red pieces of felt (under where the white rim would be) using a simple in-n-out stitch.

4. Finally, we pinned the stockings together and sewed them up with a machine!

I’m so excited to fill them with goodies!

Merry Christmas!
