Personalized Christmas stockings are often made by someone close. I got mine from my mom when I was quite young. 30+ years later I still have that stocking. In fact she made one for each of my brothers as well.
How It's Made
The beauty of this stocking is how simple it is to make. Some felt, some yarn and some glue. That's all it took. The pattern was obviously in the shape of a stocking cut out from 2 pieces of felt.
Next cut out shapes from the Christmas season. For my stocking I have a snowman. Finally the letters.
Glue the letters for the name. The final step is to sew the yarn down the sides to make the stocking and you are done. Don't forget to sew on a hanger so Santa can deposit the little goodies.
Like I said, I've had that stocking for over 30 years. It hangs at my fireplace every year. Every year Santa leaves me some goodies but that is not the best part. The best part is that it was made with love and my little Christmas stocking was made by hand. Thanks Mom.
