Striped Christmas Stockings

happy monday! yep, its THE LAST monday before christmas. yikes. {cue: panic attack. ugh} but i did check on more project off my list for christmas this year….i finally made Christmas Stockings! {yes, that was what was missing from our Christmas mantel} as in, this has been on the list for years, but every christmas seems to come and go and i never get them done. well, i was determined to not let it happen again this year. i was tired of the mismatch, ugly store bought ones we have.

so check out our spiffy new *Striped Christmas Stockings!*

christmas stockings

you may notice there are only 2 stockings….and there are 4 in our family. yup, i still have 2 more stockings to sew this week. but hey, i got the 2 most important stockings done for our little guys. {if there’s no stockings for santa to leave davis and i lumps of coal, meh. ;}

diy christmas stockings

i think the stripes are perfect for christmas! love them.

green stripe fabric

i found this home decor fabric at ikea last summer for another project {will be posting on it soon, so stay tuned!} i had quite a bit left over so this was the perfect use for the scraps. and i loved the heavier fabric for the stockings. makes them sturdy and hold their shape very nicely.

    Your stockings are adorable! I made stockings for my boys a few years ago and after making three for them I decided that my hubby and I really did need stockings:)

    perfectly goes along with your bright and cheery mantle! I am SOOOO freaking out about everything I need to do in the next two weeks :(

    Do you have a template or pattern you followed? I’ve been searching for stockings and have decided I’m going to have to sew them also.

      Hi Makinzee,
      I used a store bought stockings for the template {traced around it about 1/2″ wider} and then adjusted it to be skinner in the leg because I didn’t like how fat the leg was. I’m sure you could do the same thing pretty easily! thanks for stopping by!
      happy crafting,

    For my Christmas crafting I’m tatting a few more snowflakes and angels, and making a bunch of wool dryer balls for presents. I wish I had time for more this year.

    Cute stockings! I am also a little freaked out about it being the last Monday before Christmas. I still have to make a blanket, some totes, and a mini scrapbook album. Hopefully I can get it all done in the next few days!
