Christmas stockings using a free McCalls pattern

christmas stocking

I am in full “make Christmas presents” mode. As small tokens of friendship or love, I made fully lined stockings. So far, I made 18 but once I wrote down who I would like to gift them to I realized I probably need a lot more. So I’ll spend my Thanksgiving, and much of next week, sewing. Looking forward to it!

The stocking pattern is free from McCalls, available online. I modified the pattern, printing it not as big as suggested, and by not doing any kind of embroidery. I simply chose two contrasting fabrics for the toe/heel contrast and the fold-over top.

These are really quick to sew and look adorable. If you need a quick gift, these are perfect!

Happy sewing!
