Scrappy Christmas Stocking

Today is the final day to enter to win ric rac! See the giveaway post here.


I made this Christmas stocking for my mom using the tutorial I shared the other day. However, I made the front from scraps on fabric I used last year to make ornaments for friends of hers. (Looking back, I never posted pictures of the ornaments I made for her, just some that were made from other fabric. Oh, well.)


I wasn’t a huge fan of the fabric she had chosen, but since I can’t let anything go to waste, I had planned to make a bunting from the scraps. I cut it out last year, got busy, and never actually sewed it. (It isn’t appealing to make Christmas decorations any other time than Christmas!)

The triangles were just sitting in my scrap bin. So I took the triangles and made a stocking front and back.


I added some scraps of gold ric rack I had sitting around from a project I made for church. I added these to the front before I joined the front and back pieces.

While it doesn’t fall into my favorite style of decor, I think my mom will love it.IMG_3289 She loves red and gold and really had liked this fabric.


  1. Excuse me, but am I missing the actual instructions somewhere???????
