Winter is here and it’s time to break out the plaid and faux fur. That’s right. Faux fur and plaid are a match made in heaven. Did you also know that these two materials make for a perfect homemade stocking? Now you do. Here’s what you’ll need to get started:
- ½ yard of red or gray plaid fabric
- 16 inches of 4-inch fur trim
- Sewing Machine
- Glue Gun
First, fold your plaid fabric in half, making sure that the right sides are facing one another and cut. Once this step is done, you will have two pieces. Then, trace your stockings onto the plaid fabric and cut out. Next, sew a hem about ½ inches wide around the edge of your stocking. Once you have a finished edge, sew the two pieces together then add the loop for hanging using a 6” piece of ribbon. Lastly, add the fur using a hot glue gun. You’re now ready to hang on the mantle for Santa!
If finding time for crafting is a concern, try this easy stocking project. It requires no sewing and you can get as creative as you like adding holiday flair that you have readily available at your home. First, visit your local craft store or big box retailer and purchase a ready-made felt stocking. We found it’s easier to glue materials to felt. Next, choose the materials you’d like to attach to your stocking to add extra cheer. For example, you can glue sequin snowflakes, buttons, bows, reindeer noses, etc. Let your imagination run wild and see what you can come up with.
