Sew and Tell: Christmas stocking

Here’s a twist on a traditional red and white Christmas stocking. The cuff of the stocking is a mane of white yarn.

To make this stocking, you’ll need:
  • Red felt
  • White embroidery thread
  • Yarn 
Make a stocking pattern and cut 2 pieces out of red felt. Stitch around your stocking with embroidery thread.

To make the yarn fringe, wrap yarn around a 3 inch piece of cardboard approximately 10 times. Slide the yarn off and tie the top of the loops together. Make several of these and stitch the loops to the top of the stocking. Fluff the yarn and trim.
Hang your stocking and hope for goodies.
