How to Make a Christmas Stocking Step-By-Step
How to Sew a Christmas stocking: This is the perfect sewing project for a beginner sewer. I’ll teach you how to sew a Christmas stocking with a cuff but you can eliminate the cuff if you don’t have enough fabric or feel too inexperienced to add a cuff. You can also hand sew Christmas stockings but I use a sewing machine in this tutorial. If you are wondering how to make a simple Christmas Stocking or want to make your own buffalo plaid stockings then keep reading!
You’ll need a Sewing Machine to make this project. If you don’t have a sewing machine, you can easily hand sew Christmas stockings, it just takes a bit longer.
I’ll show you how to sew a Christmas stocking with cuff below. These DIY Handmade Christmas stockings were so cheap and easy to make that I ended up sewing 10 stockings in just a couple of hours. The cost of the fabric and materials ended up being $1.67 per stocking! That is super cheap compared to spending $12-$24 per stocking at a store – plus these are high-quality materials and I was able to personalize them to match my home decor.
Do you like this buffalo plaid fabric? I found a quilted buffalo plaid fabric at Joanne Fabrics! It was $19.99 per yard and I got 1.5 yards to make 5 buffalo plaid stockings and had enough fabric leftover to make 5 buffalo plaid cuffs for the white stockings.
How to make a Christmas Stocking:
- Sewing Machine or needle and thread if sewing by hand (if not using the no-sew method)
- Glue Gun (if not sewing)
- 1 and 1/2 yards of fabric (makes 5-6 stockings depending on the size of your stocking and width of fabric – I used a quilted fabric in buffalo plaid)
- 1/2 yard fabric (for the cuff – I used super-soft white cotton) OR Fur Ribbon (found at craft stores during the holidays)
- Coordinating Thread (if sewing)
- Fabric Marker (optional)
- Ribbon (for the hanging loop at the top)
- Gather supplies. Watch the video below for the No-Sew method.
- I used another stocking as a pattern for my stockings but I’ve provided a FREE stocking template that you can download below!
- Trace the stocking template onto your fabric using a fabric marker.
- Use scissors to cut out 2 stockings. I folded my fabric and cut 2 at the same time, then cut along the fold at the top.
- Place the 2 stocking pieces right sides together.
- Sew around the edge except for the top. Glue together if using the no-sew method.
- Turn right side out.
- Wrap the fur ribbon around the top of the stocking, the fur should be facing inside (wrong side facing out).
- Cut the fur to size.
- Sew or glue the right sides of the fur ribbon together.
- Place the fur cuff around the outside of the stocking the stocking and sew/glue the fur to the top of your stocking.
- Flip the stocking insid out, then roll the cuff outside of the stocking.
- Handstitch or glue a lop of ribbon the inside corner of the stocking so you can hang the stocking.
Tip: I had some extra WHITE cotton twill fabric on-hand and was able to use it to make 4 MORE white stockings and use the leftover buffalo plaid fabric as a cuff on the white stockings. Then I hung the stockings on our DIY faux fireplace.
