DIY Grid Pattern Christmas Stocking

The Christmas stocking tradition is one I loves when I was little, probably because the surprises that were in the stocking on Christmas morning had to be small (to fit in the stocking) and I LOVED tiny things (pollypockets? MY LIFE)

I wanted to have some this year especially since Damien didn’t have this tradition (apparently they don’t have them in France?).

So the grid pattern obsession continues with these DIY Grid Pattern Christmas Stockings

Supplies

Steps

1- Cut out the pattern, I added a 6 cm strip (between the middle and the top) to be able to fold it back nicely.

2- Cut out 2 pieces in the grid fabric and 2 pieces in the lining (leave a 1cm margin)

4- Make a little strip of fabric (about 3 cm wide) fold, sew & turn. You’ll use it to hang your stocking

5- Place your little strip (folded in half) about 10 cm from to top inside the lining

Pin everything in place and sew all around (except the top opening) **** Leave a 5 cm opening a the bottom of the lining.
