Project: Felt Stocking Ornament

Ahhh the stores at Christmas time are lovely. All of the interesting little decorations and baubles are so fun to see. I found a felt stocking at Crate and Barrel that I fell in love it, and  bought it. I wanted to have it as inspiration for the kids to make at school. It is a charmer, so I wanted to share it with you.

Directions
Cut out the stocking shape out of cream felt. (Cut two)
Cut out the trees from the green wool. (for stocking pictured cut 3)
Embroider the trees onto one side of one of the stocking pieces of felt. (I did this with the machine.)
Then add any beading decoration

Add the rick rack to the edge.  I recommend basting it in place first to just the top layer.

Cut a short length of decorative red ribbon, form a loop, and stitch this in place. (If you intend to make this a Christmas TREE ornament, I would suggest a shorter loop because you are just going to put a little hook on it. If you intend to make this hang on a door knob or on a mantel display, I suggest a longer loop. ) The last step would be to pin the top to the back and sew them together. I did this on the machine, but this could be done by hand as well.

I have made this big enough to be a gift card holder too. This would be a nice home-made touch for the teacher/neighbor gifts.
