Stufed Stockings

Standard

Normally one would hang the stockings by the fireplace and wait excitedly for Santa to fill them with all sorts of Godiva chocolates. This time, your family will be surprised to find them next to their dinner plates!

Silverware Stocking

SUPPLIES:
Computer
Felt
Fabric Glue
Needle and thread

I began with a google search. I was looking for a clip art image of a simple stocking. I saved it to my computer and stretched it to the size I needed. Once it was printed off, I had our pattern. We laid it on yellow and red felt and traced the shape of the stockings. Once I had 10 cut out (you need 2 for each stocking) I trimmed that pattern down to form the cuff and toe. Once those were cut out, we began the gluing process.

Do not use very much, but run the glue around the edge of 1 stocking, making sure not to put any glue on the top, you need to leave that end open. Press the top and bottom pieces together and then glue on the toe and cuff. We played around a bit and decided that we liked the cuff to wrap around the stocking a little bit.

After making 3 of them, we decided that we wanted to try sewing one and see how it looked. We used invisible thread and a whip stitch to put it together. Boo and I decided it looked much nicer, but the glue held together fine.
