This week, I’ve been volunteering to help decorate for a charity christmas event “Winter Wonderland.” It’s been hard work, but really fun! My main task has been to make some christmassy stockings to hang on the wall. I’ve definitely been getting into the christmas spirit
Christmas stockings are super simple to make, and here’s how to do it! Cheesy background christmas music is necessary.
You will need: Fabric for the main bit of the stocking (the ones I made are quite large, I used 1/4 of a metre per stocking), fabric for the trim of the stocking (you only need a teeny bit), scissors, needle and thread, and a sewing machine (optional.)
Step 1: Cut out your stocking shape twice. The shape I used is below. Sew them together, remembering to leave the top open!
Step 2: Turn your stocking inside out (so the seams are on the inside.) Cut a strip of trim 3 inches wide, and sew it onto the top of the stocking. I only sewed it along the top line, and not the bottom, since it hangs better this way.
Yay, your stocking is finished. Now, go out and make everything look like Christmas!
