  • How to make a Christmas stocking. Blanket Stitched Felt Stocking - Step 1
    Step 1

    Cut the shapes out and trace onto felt with a white fabric pencil. Cut out all of your shapes - two of the stocking and two of the stocking "cuff."

    For a decorative edge, I cut the bottom edge of the "cuff" with scalloped scissors (pictured). You can also try pinking shears.

    Sew the 2 stocking pieces together using the blanket stitch.

    Start by bringing the needle up through just one of the layers of fabric.

    Poke the needle down into the fabric, right next to your previous stitch. This stitch should go through BOTH layers of fabric. You will be left with a small loop of floss, leave it a bit loose (in the shape of an arc).

    Now, blanket stitch the top of the cuff to the top of the stocking. While you're at it, stitch a loop of ribbon or rickrack into the corner of the stocking for hanging.
