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 I made some new ones out of grain sack fabric.

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.
