DIY Holiday Stockings: Sew Stockings With Personalized Embroidery!

Stockings are great projects that are perfect for personalized embroidery embellishment. You can make an intricate stocking with piecing, applique, embroidery, beading–you name it. Or you can create a simple stocking using one fabric for the outer and lining stocking and simply embroider the band with the name of the recipient.

There are tons of stocking patterns out there–from easy freebies to more tried-and-true affordable digital patterns. I particularly like this one.  It’s super easy yet elegant. Choose linen, velvet or a simple cotton fabric, and then go with one line-art design or font for a name.

While these designs each have their own aesthetic. Playing with fonts can really put forth a mood or personality to a project.

This Classic Alphabet is playful and has a holiday vibe. I like the all-caps on a stocking, especially when the stocking has a wide cuff. This font would hold up well to a cuff with a nap, such as with faux fur, fleece or velvet.
