This Christmas, make this easy felt stocking filler bag. The bag in itself is a gift that could be used year after year, and you will earn double points if you fill the bag with a sweet little treat.

If you need Christmas stockings because you missed out on last year's after Christmas sales, you can make really fun ones without sewing and for a little cost. Just buy the cheapest red felt stockings you can find (try drug and discount stores) and sheets of felt at a craft store.

Someone gave me a floor mat for my baby to play on that was missing some toys that dangle. Instead of throwing it away when I got a better one, I decided to cut it up and make a stocking!


I made a pattern out of a large piece of drawing paper that I drew a freehand stocking on.

Is there a way to "flip" a Christmas stocking pattern? I have one stocking with the "toe" going right. I have completed it. The next stocking, the pattern I love, only comes with the toe facing left.

I would like it to match the first one (directionally) so when I hang on fireplace they will face same way.

I crochet a little and had a similar problem - which I solved by simply making two 'fronts' and hanging the finished stockings to have the toes facing one another. All I did differently was to choose different right sides when stitching.


Taking it very slowly, row by row, I was able to get the pair done.
