DIY: Homemade Stockings

12 days of christmas crafting3 more days left of Christmas Crafting… and today’s one is a pretty big one: HOMEMADE STOCKINGS! I’m going to show off Mitchel’s because it’s much more original than my Christmas stocking. haha.

DSC_1802 Step One: Gather your supplies: 1/4 yard of your base fabric, 6 inches of the flap fabric, a rotary cutter, a self-healing mat, and a bit of ribbon. Cut out a stencil for the “foot” of the stocking and the flap.

DSC_1806 Step Three: Sew the flap and stocking together. I did this by sewing the white fuzzy flap on what will eventually be the inside of  the stocking. That way I could fold it over afterwards.

Step Four: Put the two outer sides of the stocking facing each other and sew them together. Flip right side out…. aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand
