Woven Ribbon Christmas Stocking

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care…
Can you believe it’s almost time to hang up our stockings? Or, maybe…some of us might already have our stockings hanging around offering holiday cheer. I love stockings and that is one tradition that I LOVE about Christmas and today, Carolina from 30 Minute Crafts is sharing a gorgeous new stocking made with stunning ribbon woven together to give a comfy, cozy Christmas stocking your family is sure to enjoy! Enjoy!

I’m super excited to share this project with you today – I love stockings, and this one is one of my favorite stockings ever! You can use whatever colors of ribbon you like to weave up your own ribbon stocking.

To make your stocking you’ll need:
1 Fat Quarter white fabric
1 Fat Quarter coordinating fabric (I used green)
4 or more ribbons in 2 colors – I used two merlot colored sheer ribbons, a green sheer, and a 1/4″ green grosgrain. Different widths add interest, make sure to use several sheer ribbons.
Scissors
Glue Stick
Sewing Machine
Needle and Thread
Stocking Pattern – I used my two to a sheet stocking pattern

Burgundy Sheer with Satin Edges Sheer Collage Emerald

Use a 1/4″ seam throughout.

Cut one stocking shape from the white fabric, and three from your coordinating fabric. Put the coordinating colors aside.

Cut strips of ribbon the height of the stocking. Using the glue stick, tack the top and bottom to the fabric. Keep a pattern – ribbon 1, 2, 3, 4 – then repeat. All the way across.

Cut ribbon strips the width of the stocking. Using the same pattern, weave the ribbon across the stocking.

Weave all the way down. When you get to the bottom, if you need to, carefully peel the glued down ribbon off the fabric, then glue back in place.

Pin the tops of two of the coordinating stockings together, toes in the same direction. Stitch together, then press open. Repeat with the white piece and remaining coordinating piece.

Put the two stitched pairs on top of each other, right sides together, pinning all the way around.

Stitch all the way around, leaving a 4″ hole in the stitching on the lining pieces (the non-woven side) for turning.

Clip the seam allowance at the concave curves.

Turn the stocking right side out, through the hole left in the seam.

Hand-stitch the hole closed, then tuck the lining into the stocking. Use a pen, the end of a spoon, or a dowel to poke down to the end, fully turning the stocking right side out and giving it its shape.

Using the sewing machine, stitch 1/8″ from the top to secure the lining in place.

Cut a 6″ piece of ribbon to create a loop, then stitch to the back of the stocking to hang.

Your stocking is all done! Make as many as you like – these are so fun, and you can make them big or small, depending on your needs. The plaid look created by the weaving is so fun and Christmasy!
