Featured Guest Post {East Coast Mommy)


My name is Gina, and I have a little blog called East Coast Mommy.  I am super excited to be visiting here at “A Diamond in the Stuff” today and sharing my quick and easy Christmas project with you.


I just love these little felt stockings because they are simple and inexpensive to make, and they are easy to slip in with a Christmas card.

Here is what you’ll need:  scrap white felt, scrap red felt, two red buttons, a piece of ribbon, some red and white embroidery floss, a needle, and a template that you can find here.



Here’s what you do:

Step 1:  Cut two stocking shapes from the white felt and cut one rectangle (for the top of the stocking) from the red felt.


Step 2:  Using red embroidery thread, stitch the bottom of the rectangle to one of the white stocking shapes.  This will be the front of the ornament.  (Just stitch the bottom of the rectangle.  The rest will be attached when you stitch the front piece to the back piece.)


Step 3:  Sew two red buttons onto the piece that has the red felt stitched to the top.


Step 4:  Stitch a piece of ribbon to the other white stocking shape.  This will be the back of the stocking.  (I used white thread so that you wouldn’t be able to see it on the back of the ornament.)




Step 5:  Stitch the front and back pieces together using red embroidery thread.  That’s it! 
Easy, right?  🙂

Thanks for letting me visit with you here at A Diamond in the Stuff.  Please stop by and see me at East Coast Mommy some time.  🙂
