As a rule, we do not do Christmas stockings, however, years ago I created a little stocking from one piece of felt. At that time I didn't sew much, so I used glue or sewed them closed with a blanket stitch, which made them a super easy project. If you find yourself in need of an easy little stocking, perhaps for a classroom project, or as a gift topper, this should fit the bill. I used felt, but I think it would work just as well with paper. Whether or not you choose to sew by machine or hand, or just glue it shut, is up to you.
From the opposite end, measure about 3 inches down and mark on the open side.
Sew on your line.
Cut around shape of boot, leaving a 1/8 inch seam allowance.
You can turn stocking inside out if you prefer or if your markings show too prominently, but I like the raw-edge look.
5. Fold the top portion of the boot down.
For hanger: Cut 5 inches from strip. Fold in half and pin strip inside stocking approximately an inch down from folded cuff. Sew in place.
These little stockings would make the perfect wrapping for a gift card or a bag of homemade fudge.
