How to Make Mini Christmas Stocking Ornaments

How to Make a Mini Christmas Stocking Ornament

Since Christmas is just around the corner I thought I would create these cute mini Christmas stocking ornaments from some scrap Christmas fabric that I had on hand.  This is a fun beginner sewing project for anyone with basic sewing skills.  This is a fun little Christmas ornament to make.  Use all of your scrap Christmas fabrics to make a lot of these to sprinkle all over your tree for a fun look.  I added some faux fur but you could add a contrasting fabric for the cuff.  Either would make a terrific look for this mini stocking.  

I used scraps of fabric that I purchased from Joann’s but you could head to fabric.com and onlinefabricstore.net to get exactly what you need for your mini stocking project.  This post contains affiliate links that if you click on them and make a purchase I may receive a small commission at no extra cost to you.

What you will Need: How to Make Mini Christmas Stocking Ornaments

Step 1: Cut out your Fabrics

Using the stocking pattern cut out two from the outer and the lining.  This is important: Make sure that you have mirrored images of the stocking for each piece.  This should occur naturally if you are cutting on folded fabric.  If you are cutting on single thickness fabric you will need to turn the pattern over to get the mirror image. Using the pattern cut two cuffs from the faux fur fabric.

Step 2: Sew the cuff to the stocking

Stitch one side of the cuff to top of the outer stocking.  Sew the lining stocking to the other side of the cuff.  The three pieces should look like a big “U” shape.  Repeat for the other stocking pieces.  

Place fur right sides together
Add lining

Step 3: Add the hanger

Place the stocking pieces right sides together. Take a 4″ piece of ribbon and make a loop.  Place the loop between the layers near the top of the faux fur piece on the lining side of the stocking piece so that the raw edges match and the loop is inside the stocking at the back.  Pin.

Step 4: Sew the stockings together

With right sides together stitch the two stocking pieces together using a 1/4″ seam allowance.  You will stitch all the way around the stocking pieces leaving an opening at the bottom of the lining.  

Place halves right sides together

Step 5: Turn the stocking

Turn the stocking right side out by pushing the stocking pieces through the opening you left in the lining.  Sew the hole in the lining closed.

Turn right sides out

Step 6: Finish the Stocking

Push the lining into the stocking and hang it on your tree and you have finished your mini Christmas stocking ornament.
