Christmas stocking

A cone-shaped stocking inspired by the Victorian period is both glamorous and cozy. Although this project requires a sewing machine, it’s still simple to make. A pompom fringe and a grosgrain ribbon are all that are needed to make this stocking worthy of receiving gifts. crafts-stocking-MAIIN.jpg Materials
  • designer Felt

  • scissors
  • sewing machine
  • pompom fringe
  • grosgrain ribbon
  • needle

Craft-stocking-1.jpg Step 1
With a piece of felt folded in half, measure and mark 23" along the fold and 9½" across the top using a ruler and a fabric pencil. Connect the points to form half of a triangle. Cut out the triangle using scissors. Craft-stocking-2.jpg
Step 2
Using a sewing machine, stitch a 19" length of fringe along the top of the triangle (where the cuff would be), making sure the edges are lined up. Craft-stocking-3.jpg
Step 3
Cut a 10" length of grosgrain ribbon (includes a ½" seam allowance). Fold the ribbon in half and, using a needle and thread, handstitch both ends to the felt on a slight angle with the loop facing inward, about 1" from the top. Craft-stocking-last.jpg
Step 4
Fold the felt in half lengthwise, right sides together. Using a sewing machine, stitch a ½" seam along the longest open edge. Press the seam allowance and turn right side out.
