Okay, so this needs to be one of my preferred Christmas
jobs ever! A few years ago I made our own personalised Christmas stockings. This year however I wished to swap them out with something different.I saw these sherpa ones at Bed Bath n Table and they ended up being the motivation for this year’s stockings. I did think about simply buying them, however at$30 each I wished to see if I might make them cheaper.So off to Spotlight I went and discovered this white sherpa material with grey pleather(faux leather made from plastic)backing. It was on sale for simply under$20 a metre. I bought one metre and this turned out to be ample for 4 stockings. For my equipping, I discovered this free pattern here, which I printed, eliminated and stuck. After folding my material in half, I pinned my pattern and cut it out, together with a little strip for the hanging loop. I did this 4 times for my 4 stockings. Next I stitched around all the stockings,and attached the hanging loop. Then turned them
right side out. I then chose to include a cuff to each stocking by cutting some thick strips of sherpa. First I sewed the edges together and turned them ideal side out. Next I sat them on the exterior of the stockings, where the cuffs must sit.
Folding a percentage over the edge of the stocking, I then hot glued the top of the cuff
to the inside of the stockings. They looked so adorable, however a bit bland. And how would be inform which one came from who?So I went through my stash and decided to make a few wooden hanging tags. I got some remaining pine strips and cut them into 3 inch tags.
Then I utilized some walnut stain to stain them. I utilized a white paint pen to print our names. And some beads and twine to develop the hanging loop.

well. I really wasn’t sure about how these would turn out, however they are so plush and have a wintery/snowy ambiance to them which I like. And I can always alter the tags up if I desire in coming years. And the total cost of this job was under$20!
It would have cost me $120 for the store bought ones so I believe I did good, do not you?< img height ="640" src= "https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-Ce3Xoj-3FD8/X7IQw2yC3PI/AAAAAAAAQoI/8GEhlDkMXiERZSXzLVEHYMAhvpsli9wlQCLcBGAsYHQ/w1480-h1640/IMG_1912.jpeg"width="480"/ > I’m so anticipating finishing up my Christmas designing in the coming weeks and sharing my home tour with you!
