How to Sew Christmas Stockings
If you want to know how to sew Christmas stockings that are larger,
make your pattern bigger or use an old stocking for your pattern.
Lay your pattern out on the material desired, follow the sewing
instructions below and decorate as you'd like.
Place two stockings right sides together. Sew around edges leaving
Turn edge ½ inch down and hem in place.
Turn right side out. Cut a strip of ribbon and pin in place. Sew to
make a ribbon loop for hanging.
Now your mini stockings are sewn and you are ready to decorate.
Decorate with pom poms, jingle bells, ribbon, buttons, whatever
embellishments you can find or want to use.
Use these as tree decorations or fill with little presents. Make a
garland of stockings by using 4 or 5 mini stockings and attaching
them to a ribbon.
~Now that you've practiced with smaller stockings it is easy to sew
Christmas stockings of any size.
