If you haven’t got much time before Christmas comes around then this is a quick and easy way to make a personalised stocking.
I managed to find some bargain ready made stockings in Tesco (50p each). They obviously look very plain and boring though so they needed a bit of jazzing up and here’s how!
What you’ll need
· Ready made stockings
Cut out the letter you want to add to the front of your stocking using a stencil (I made my stencil with paper).
Draw around your stencil and cut out the letter on your felt
Cut down the side of your stocking (don’t worry – this will be stitched back up and hidden when you hang it up). This just makes it much easier to stitch your letter on.
Pin and then stitch your letter onto the front of the stocking.
Sew the edges to give it that extra homemade look (also sewing up the side you cut).
Add any other decorations (I added a little bow) and then hang up!
