Make your family a set of matching Christmas stockings complete with their name and a pocket for their wishlist!
To make your stockings, you'll need a template in the shape of a sock. Feel free to make it as big as you like, depending on how many presents you want to fit inside.
Fold the fleece in half and pin the paper template on top.
Cut out two stocking shapes from the red fleece.
Cut out a small rectangle from felt and a short strip of ribbon to the same width. We'll use these to make a pocket for the front of the stocking to keep our wishlist in.
Stitch the ribbon to the top of the pocket and then sew around the edges of the pocket onto the front piece of the stocking.
Cut out sock shapes for the toe, heel and top of the stocking.
Stitch these pieces in place on the front of the stocking.
Cut a length of ribbon to make a stocking loop and stitch it to the inside on the back piece of the stocking.
Place the front and back of the stocking on top of each other and sew around the outline.
Finally iron some patch letters to the front of your stocking to add your name.
Make one for each member of the family!
