hand embroidered Christmas stockings

December 24, 2013 by Angie

Now that we have a (dog) baby and a fireplace, I wanted a set of matching Christmas stockings for our mantle.

Almost finished stockings on the mantle

I bought these red stockings at Michael’s and hand embroidered them with green embroidery floss. I printed out a backwards alphabet and used that to trace our names onto pieces of tracing paper with an iron-on pen. Once the outlines of the letters were ironed onto the stockings, I went around the letters with a backstitch. I then filled the letters in with satin stitches.
