Christmas Stockings

We've had a sad hodge podge of store-bought stockings for too many years now.  I searched a few stores last year, hoping to find some that met our very few requirements:
  • not too fussy
  • well made - would hold up for at least 5 years
  • matched our existing decor (no magenta and gold please)
Aparently that was too much to ask.  Mostly any stockings I found were lacking in the "well-made" category.  So this year I decided to just make our stockings.  I figured I could just make up my own pattern, but when I sat down to make the stockings (at 11:30 at night) my brain was in no shape to do any thinking.  A quick search online brought me to a great tutorial.  Why re-invent the wheel, right?

I loved that the stockings were lined and had a cuff - exactly what I was imagining our stockings would end up like. 

Thanks, Fabricworm for the well-written tutorial!

  1. I love that all of the stockings are the same red with different cuffs. I'm going to try the same tutorial today. Thanks for the fabric ideas! Happy holidays!
