Grain Sack Christmas Stockings

I think I finally have both my Christmas stockings and my stocking hanger ready for Christmas!

I wasn’t crazy about any of our Christmas stockings, so when I saw this Grain Sack Fabric become available on Decor Steals, I decided to make some new ones.  I ordered the pretty red stripe fabric (E in the photo below).  You get 3 yards of fabric and I made 6 stockings so I have plenty of fabric left over for other projects and lots of little scraps left over for some small projects.

The fabric has the look and feel of antique grain sacks that are so hard to come by at a decent price.  I bought these little fabric tags at Hobby Lobby, created the names in Word, then printed them with iron-on transfer paper.  I cut up an old flannel sheet to line inside the stockings.

These are really easy stockings to make – you just have to think carefully when assembling them to sew, so all the seams are hidden inside and the hanger faces upward.  I’ve used this same pattern many times over the last 15+ years.  I wore out my original pattern, so I traced a new one on a newspaper ad insert.  Previously, I’ve always added a cuff at the top, but wanted to keep these grain sack Christmas stockings more old-fashioned looking, so I didn’t add a cuff.

I created this antique bed footboard coat rack that I planned to use to hang our Christmas stockings on, but I had it listed in my shop and it sold several weeks before Christmas.

I have the matching headboard for the bed and could have painted it, but I’ve been up to my ears in finishing custom orders sold through my shop, so I decided to make life easier on myself and use this vintage headboard that I had painted already.  It’s less fancy, but it works and that’ll do this year.

Decor Steals does still have the grain sack fabric available, so if you’d like to get a Free $5 credit to use (on anything on their site!), use THIS LINK, then create an account before putting any items in your cart.
Make sure to create an account BEFORE you purchase so they know I referred you and you get the $5 discount.  Once you’ve done that, click on this link if you want to purchase the fabric, or select any other items you’d like.  It comes out to $12.50 a yard and it is 54″ wide fabric, so it’s a lot of fabric for the price.  If it doesn’t sell out, I plan to buy the blue stripe fabric soon as well.
