Applique Christmas Stocking

Applique Christmas Stockings

An applique Christmas stocking is a really fun stocking to look at and have as your own, or make or buy for others. My favorite thing about them is the three-dimensional look they have after all the overlays are completed.

In general, to understand what an applique is, think of simply putting one object on top of another object for the purpose of creating interesting designs.

So when you look at the applique Christmas stockings below, you can see how not only are pieces put on top of the stocking fabric itself, but pieces can be put over pieces to create the compelling effect so many of us appreciate and enjoy looking at.

The 3-D look is always great to me, and an applique Christmas stocking offers that fantastic opportunity to create the look through creative and inventive ideas by using a plethora of materials to do the job. In other words, it's great fun, and adds to the excitement entailed with digging into those little guys to get our goodies and presents.

Sugar Plum Fairy Applique Stocking

The Sugar Plum Fairy applique Christmas stocking below is about the favorite one there is out there. This is definitely a busy design, and the fairy herself is nicely done. I do wonder if its the ongoing and growing popularity of other fairies like Tinkerbell which makes this so captivating to those viewing it? Either way, it's always at the top of the favorite applique Christmas stockings to buy.

Gingerbread Man Stocking

I've always liked this Christmas stocking of Santa and his elf making gingerbread man cookies. Two of my favorite parts of it are the satisfied smiles from Santa and the elf over what they obviously consider a job well done. But that little group of finished cookies in the basket are just too cool to me.

Oh yeah, those little green shoes on the elf are great as well.

This is just a terrific applique Christmas stocking. How could you not look at this and want to smile. It reminds me of some romps in the snow in northern Minnesota where I grew up. Aren't those little puffy arms on the snowmen great?

Cool is the only word that can describe this fantastic Christmas stocking of Santa riding his hog. How about those candy cane handle bars. You don't see the Hell's Angels with anything that neat.

Not only are those shades fantastic on Santa, but how about the reindeer's shades on the back while he takes a break from his Christmas work.
