'This is one of my first Christmases in my own place, and I've had to make do with a lot of necessities (thank goodness, no pizza box chairs, though!)
Far too close to Christmas, I realized I didn't have a stocking to hang. So I decided to make my own.
I only had black fabric, so it's my ninja stocking.
For this instructable, you'll need to know the following terms:
right side: the decorative or nice-looking side of a fabric. If your fabric is the same on both sides, you're very lucky.
wrong side: the ugly side of a fabric. You'll be seeing a lot of this side soon!
Step 1: Materials
Unless you want to stitch by hand, I highly recommend having a sewing machine!
Fabric trim (for the top and loop)
Lots of pins
Tape measure or ruler
Paper and Pencil
Lining fabric--for a more professional look
Backing fabric--necessary if you use a stretchy fabric for your stocking.
Chalk--it just makes life easier
Decorative cord or other decorations
