    Homemade stockings?

    Advertisements
    I am thinking about making DH and my stockings (this is our first Christmas). Anyone done it before?

    - we have homemade. Are you wanting to sew or crochet/knit or? I sewed our stockings - I liked being able to choose a fabric for each person to personalize the stocking.

    I made them for DH, me and ODM (That's Older Dear Mutt). I need to make one for YDM. Mine are reversible, the inside fabric is DH's uniform (I was going through a phase ) and the outside fabric is different for each one. I really liked how they came out! It was my first project and I didn't have anything to go on, I just made a tissue paper cutout and went to town.

    All of ours are homemade. My grandma specifically sews ones for each person with different fabrics/designs. I love them.

    I've sewn stockings before
    It wasn't hard, and kinda fun, especially to have custom stockings.

    I didn't make them but DH's grandmother knits stockings for everyone in the family! She's mailing mine and DD's sometime in the next week or so

    Sew. I have no idea how to knit I just asked my mom if I can borrow her sewing machine when we visit for Thanksgiving, so I better get shopping for the fabric.

    Anyone want to share photos of theirs?
