'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!
Stocking fabric
Fabric trim (for the top and loop)
Lots of pins
Matching thread
Tape measure or ruler
Paper and Pencil

Optional materials:
Lining fabric--for a more professional look
Backing fabric--necessary if you use a stretchy fabric for your stocking.
Hand needle
Chalk--it just makes life easier
Decorative cord or other decorations
How is it ninja?
I was going to put ninja eyes on it originally...I might still add them.
Oh. That sounds cool! Hope it turns out well!
But if it's a ninja stocking, how will Santa find it?
His elves will tell him. They are watching you.
Santa is one of the greatest ninjas of all-time. Obviously, that's how he's able to deliver all those toys in one night.
So THAT'S why it was empty Christmas morning. I'll have to work on that.
hey, that could also be an emo stocking
That sewing machine is <strong>SWEET!</strong><br/>
Thanks! It's a refurbished model from Ebay.
Consider your ninja stocking as now being ninja approved! Well done, I'm going to start working on mine right now.
