Are you looking for a way to make things festive this Holiday season without breaking the bank? Here's a nice way to personalize a store-bought Christmas stocking.
Step 1: Supplies
You will need a store bought felt stocking, a piece of felt in contrasting color, matching thread, sewing needle, measuring tape, straight pins and scissors.
Step 2: Cut Out Letters
Measure across the top of your stocking and figure how much room you have to work with, allow 1/4" between each letter. My letters were about 2" tall. I cut out all capital letters because that was easier for me. Pin letters onto stocking.
Step 3: Sew Letters Onto Stocking
Hand stitch each letter onto the stocking, removing pins as you sew.
Step 4: Finished Christmas Stocking
I sewed the names onto the stockings while I was watching TV, so it went pretty fast. I think they turned out rather nicely. My Grandchildren approved so that's all that matters.
