Make your own personalised Christmas stocking or buy one of mine!

 Making a Christmas stocking really is easy peasy! Anyone can do it! Here is one that I made this weekend for my lovely little boy! Although he won't know it's Christmas at all this year! It takes approximately 2 hours maximum and leaves you with a family heirloom for life! Treasured happy memories for years to come when it's got out of the loft and hung up every Christmas Eve, perhaps next to a mince pie and a glass of sherry for you know who!

Cutout 2 stocking shapes right sides together

Work out some simple shapes to decorate your stocking

Iron your fabric to wondaweb and cut out your shapes

 Peel off the back of your wondaweb and iron it onto your stocking

Using a tight zig zag satin stitch sew your shapes on

Run a zig zag stitch round the endge of your stocking shapes. Attach some fur to the top for added Xmas gusto and then sew your pieces right sides together leaving a 1.5 cm seam allowance. Hey presto!
