Last week I worked on two Christmas stockings for me and the Mr. and I still need to make one for the kitty. The sewing machine was challenged and eventually, so was my creativity. The Christmas stockings are sewn and the skeleton is strong. The following details are still unfinished and I'm collecting some ideas to stamp my personal touch on our stockings. In the meantime, enjoy the eye candy that I'm using for inspiration.
These sweater stockings are so sweet with the polka dot fabric inside and ruffles on the top edge. Apartment Therapy shares where you can pick up a pattern to create stockings for yourself.
I shared this creative stocking before on this blog but I want to share this free pattern featured on Twig and Thistle again.
These country style stockings are simple to make and would make cute gifts in the rooms of your out-of-town guests. All About You shares a pattern and instructions.
An always reliable source for patterns, Martha Stewart offers this pattern for mini boot-shaped stockings. This link also provides 28 different templates. Not a bad deal!
The greatest part of this fun side gig is stumbling upon one great blog after another. That was the case with this strip pieced stocking and the incredible details that are shared on The Purl Bee.
I had to use Martha Stewart again because these warm stockings can be made with a scarf that you already have at home. Click here to grab the pattern.
