To all my thrifty/sewing mamas out there

How hard is it to sew together a stocking? (like for Christmas) I might be mistaken but in my mind I am thinking it is on the easy side...Cut the fabric, sew, turn right side in, add cuff & ribbon to hang.

Am I mistaken??

Thanks girlies! <3

  • It would be as simple ( just as you said) or as complicated ( adding more adornments, fringe, beads, glitter, sequins, etc) as you wish it to be. Have fun with it. Sounds like you already have a great plan. Go with it!!!

  • If you go to google and type in Christmas stocking pattern you can find all kinds of ideas. I think I'm inspired.

  • This would be an easy project....could even be sewn by hand if you don't have a machine. Have fun!

  • if you don't feel like sewing, you can use stitch witch- great project. i would suggest lining it, either way, just so that its dourable enough to last.

    i like to quilt, so projects are never that simple. lol

    i crochet a couple stockings as well! they were beautiful, and i lined them with satin- really pretty. just another thought. :)
