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.

What you will Need: How to Make Mini Christmas Stocking Ornaments
- Pattern you can get here!
- Scraps of outer and lining fabric
- Scraps of Faux Fur
- Standard sewing supplies
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.
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.
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.
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.
