A sewVery Simple Stocking Ornament Tutorial

I probably have more Christmas tree decorations than any other individual on the planet, but that doesn't stop me from making new ones each year!  Here's the latest one that I came up with, and I think it's the easiest one yet:  A sewVery Simple Stocking Ornament Tutorial!


First, you'll need to download my stocking ornament pattern from my Craftsy pattern shop (affiliate link).  Then, assemble the remaining supplies.


To make a dozen of these Stocking Ornaments, you'll need 1/4 yard of fabric and about 3 yards of ribbon or twine.  I bought my double sided quilted holiday fabric at Joann's: Christmas Metallic Plaid. It will take you about 30 minutes to make them!






That's it!  You're done!  These are going to look great on my tree this year, plus I plan to add one or two to each present that I wrap.


Here's another version I made using some holly decorated quilted fabric.  You can add some ric rac or ribbon or even sew on a button to add a little more detail to the stocking.  Plus, they were so much fun to make!

Happy holidays, and have fun sewing!

    1. It's one stocking cut from double sided quilted fabric. You just fold the top over for the top of the stocking. Hope this helps clear things up!
