Quick & Easy Handmade Gift, Sherpa Stocking

Today’s quick and easy handmade holiday gift was inspired by the Sherpa Boot Cover Ups I made a while back.  Immediately after making those shoe accessories, I knew I wanted to make some handmade stockings utilizing the same concept.  After all, why should the kids get all the fun this Christmas? :)

My husband and I had been using the same old ratty stockings that I purchased when we were newlyweds, and we could barely get our hands in and out of them. Although I will always keep them to remember, it was definitely time for an upgrade…

Making them are of course, super simple. It takes about 30 – 45 minutes, and requires a vacuum.  Let me show you how…

If you are worried about putting the faux leather, suede or velvet trim in the dryer – simply use a de-linter to remove the excess sherpa fur. Easy peasy lemon squeezy.

I am pretty stoked about these new stockings!  They are the perfect size for little boxes to fit into :).  Or in my husbands case, to fill with coal. Just kidding!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and until next time…

Happy Sewing!

    We don’t use stockings around here (I’m in the Netherlands, and we don’t exchange presents at Christmas usually), but I am really tempted to hang some of those at our chimney, just because they are so pretty and fun! :-)
