Free Patterns for Christmas Stockings
Creating Homemade Christmas Stockings
Christmas decorating isn't complete until the Christmas stockings are hung out for Santa to fill. There are many reasons to make your own instead of purchasing them:
- You can make them exactly how big (or small, wide, or narrow) you want them
- They can be personalized for each member of the family
- They can be made in fun shapes
- The fabrics can follow the theme and color of a new decorating scheme
- And most of all: it gives people who sew a chance to use up some of the fabric and sewing/crafting/needlepoint/yarn stash that has accumulated in the sewing or craft room (or a chance to purchase more).
If you are looking for decorating patterns for making Christmas stockings, here are my favorites. They are grouped together, so choose a style in knit, crochet or sewing to make your own stockings, or a stocking to give to someone else if you are playing secret Santa this year. Also, fun free Christmas needlepoint designs can be attached to any plain purchased or simple homemade Christmas stocking to make it more festive.
