Introduction: Personalize Christmas Stockings

About: I have been sewing and crafting for several years, my children are grown so now I have lots of time to be creative. I enjoy photography, cooking, cake decorating, painting and sharing my projects with others.

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.
