Pairs: Christmas Stockings

A friend of mine asked if I could make a Christmas stocking for her newborn…and also one for her nephew. A great reason to get back to some sewing(it has been a long….long while)!

I gathered up all the supplies, including a batch of Christmas fabric I ordered from Etsy. The BEFORE sewing photo:

Cute fabric isn’t it!!!

A few(ie many) hours later….2 completed Christmas stockings with applique letters for their initials…. The AFTER photo:

stockings after

So, a pair with before and after and also a pair of stockings! A bit wrinkly but that won’t matter to the kids when they find them stuffed with goodies!

And as a bonus, a link to my favorite Christmas Carol…Carol of the Bells performed by The Piano Guys. And no, you aren’t going crazy: it is a cello and not a piano despite the name of the group!



I love not only the music….but also the photography(especially all the bokeh).

  1. Both of my children were gifted with handmade stockings when they were born. They used them until they no longer hung stockings at our house.


  2. I love those stockings Marsha! Great job! I also love The Piano Guys! Did you see them when they were here a few weeks ago? I had a chance to meet them at Church but couldn’t make it! :o( So disappointed. Still miss you so much but have started working with my very soon to be new boss from Lethbridge who is totally awesome!!!! Lucky girl I am!


  3. Gorgeous Pair of Christmas stockings – what a lucky pair of children & lucky friend that you are SO handy with sewing.

    PS – oh yes the live reindeer were quite a treat, beautifully groomed.
