Whew, it’s been a busy month so far! I was hoping to post this DIY much sooner… but shopping, work, mom stuff, and family get-togethers have slowed me down a little. I made an easy stocking tutorial that doesn’t take much time at all to complete. Even with Christmas a few days away, you still have plenty of time to create your own colorful pompom stockings!
- Faux Fur Fabric
- Felt in Assorted Colors
- Multicolor Pompom Garland
- Sewing Machine
- Straight Pins
- Hot Glue Gun
To begin, you need a template for the size of the stocking that you want. I traced an old one onto cardboard and used that as my guide. The faux fur I’m working with is a little wiggly. When tracing it, be sure you put enough pressure on the cardboard so it doesn’t slide around. I’m making 3 stockings so I cut out 6 shapes for mine. Once you have yours cut out, take two of them and line them up together to pin the edges in place.As I mentioned how wiggly the faux fur is, you’ll want to put your straight pins close together. It makes sewing it much easier! Sew about a 1/4″ seam around the stocking, leaving the top open.
Turn the stocking from inside out after it’s seamed together. I’ve cut out two pieces for my stocking cuff, and a small strip of the fur material for the hanger. Pin the left and right edges on your cuff and sew a 1/4″ seam there as well.With the seams of the cuff visible, pin the bottom around the opening of your stocking like below.
I attached the strip of fabric for my hanger on the inside, like shown here:Remove the bobbin housing so you can easily sew all of the pieces together. Flip the cuff over the top of the stocking to finish. If necessary, press the seams at the opening with an iron. Next, attach the pompom garland using a hot glue gun. That’s it! I love how they go with my gingerbread and candy filled theme. These stockings are definitely ready for Santa! For a full tutorial of my wood cut-out gingerbread houses, click here.
