    Cool Easy Christmas Stockings

    I know, I know, it a long time til Christmas! But I want to send these to Europe and have to embroider names on them, so want to start when I have time.......which is now before the grandkids come
    So, a friend told me about a very easy pattern called magic stockings, (or something like that) but does not remember the magic of the pattern. Anyone know of this? Thanks

    those are cute. if i didn't already have Christmas stocking for myself and my extended family, I'd do those.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    I've done write a few by this pattern. The last time my son was in Iraq I did them for all the wildfires under him. I also reduced the size and did them for my granddaughters kindergarten class. They are quite easy

    That is such a cute pattern. I am kinda thinking of using that foot area of the pattern for a Halloween witch pattern I have been trying to draft out. Thank you so much.

    I like the ones made from mini charms, they can take on so many different looks depending on the fabrics chosen. Here's Jenny's tut. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UM8SpP3qIi8&t=69s

    Yes!! It's perfect! I've sketched a Halloween shoe/leg wallhanging, and that's the perfect shoe!!

    This is a tutorial for the "magic stocking"

    I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.

    The magic stockings are great to hold gift cards on the Christmas tree too.

    Our sewing group made Magic Stockings for charity one year. They are very easy and easy to mass produce. We used the same basic instructions as Krisb posted. Make sure you snip the fabric by the curves to make everything smooth after you turn it.

    I made 4 elf stockings last year for DD's family. The only thing I did not do is make the pointy cuff -- I fully lined it and used an iron on stabilizer since I wanted to keep the toes from flopping. Here is the link to my stockings:
