DIY Custom Christmas Stockings

For years I’ve been planning on making stockings for my little family, but I never managed to scrape out the time. Before I knew it, a year would come and go and my stocking dreams we postponed for another year. But not this year! I suppose Jasper added some additional motivation, and I finally sewed up a batch of stockings for the Jepsen Family. I referenced a really simple and clear tutorial to create the stockings with some fun graphic fabrics. To jazz them up a bit, I embellished them with embroidered vintage trims and ribbons. The combination of folk with punchy patterns was just the look I was going for! I used customized ribbon to identify each stocking and I love the way they turned out!

Materials:

  • 1/2″ fabric for both outside and lining
  • trims in your choice
  • template

We used this simple tutorial to create the stocking but using our own template.

To add on the ribbon for hanging, make a loop and sew it on.

I made a bitty one for Jasper too 🙂 and used this machine to add on personalized ribbons.

Would love to see what you’re making for the holidays! Tag us with #HolidaysWithLars
