It will be more meaningful if you try making Christmas stockings this year, so follow our guide on how to make a Christmas stocking to make your own.
Cut out cloths
Cut out two pieces of outside fabric and two of lining fabric in shape of stocking. It will be better if outside fabric is a combination of red and green which can reflect the feeling of Christmas, so you can make patchwork to achieve.
Sew outside fabric
Place two outside fabrics face to face and stitch along the edges except for the mouth.
Sew lining fabric
Do the same to sew two lining fabrics. You need to leave a hole a few inches wide at the bottom of the lining fabric to turn the stocking through.
Finish the stocking
Lay outside fabric and lining fabric in an opposite way to make the mouths match together. Sew two mouths together along the edge. Turn the stocking inside out and sew the hole at lining fabric.
Sew a lace trim around the mouth. Make a bowknot with lace trim and sew it on the stocking. Or you can add some other embellishments.
