Make: Holiday Stockings

Ever since Jackie posted the library bag she made for Graham, I’ve been thinking about a fun-with-felt project. I went to the fabric store and decided that I would make some fun stockings. My new favourite colour combo for Christmas this year is red and grey. I happened to find this gorgeous grey Italian fabric from their scrap bin, so I was giddy to start this project.

I wanted the stockings to have a elf toe rather than the traditional round toe. So I made a template for myself. Anyone is free to use this template. Just print to the size you want, pin to fabric and cut. Sew around the stocking, but leave the top open so you can fill it with goodies.

I made Mila Monster’s stocking out of the red felt. Kiril and my stockings are made from the italian grey fabric. I cut out the first letters of our names in a “times roman” font. Although my current favourite font is “eurostile”, I wanted a serif font for this look.

I hope I get some nice surprises in my stocking. Fingers crossed.
