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!
