Merry Little Christmas Stocking Set

I just finished this great stocking set for a family of four.  All four stockings are from the Merry Little Christmas Collection and I couldn't be happier with how these turned out. 

This buyer had such a great vision for what they wanted in their stockings!  I loved working with them!  (And I love the names of their children as well.  So fun!)  I hope these personalized Christmas stockings will add a special touch to their Christmas season for years and years to come!!

So, here is wishing you a Merry Little Christmas, too!

Merry Little Christmas Collection. NEW!!

I had the best time picking out the fabrics for this collection.  They are whimsical, classic, and cozy.  The muted toned add a warmth and a comfort to any setting. 

I call this collection the "Merry Little Christmas" collection, in honor of the fabulous collection from Riley Blake that several of these fabrics come from. 

I also added a few listings where I chose stockings that go together and made them into a single listing, to save time.  This is one trio that I put together.  When you buy several stockings, you get a discount as well, and that never hurt, right? 

Feel free to head over to the shop and see what other collections I have been cooking up.  Happy Holidays!!!

Cozy Cabin Christmas Stockings...

I have always loved the idea of a cozy holiday in front of a fire at a sweet log cabin.  Family, hot cocoa, Christmas music... nothing says Christmas like that!
So of course, I had to make the Cozy Plaid Stocking collection to live out my fantasy via sewing machine and fabric!  :)
And of course, you have to have personalized stockings hanging by that fire...
So, here are a few up-close shots of several stockings.  There are plenty more in the shop under the Cozy Plaid Stockings collection.

I love this collection!  I hope you can feel that cozy cabin holiday calling your name, too!

Unique Christmas Stockings to BRIGHTEN Your day!

These stockings were so much fun to make!  I have never worked with bright, energetic colors quite like these.  Orange stockings!!??  Who would have thought?  Yes, they are untraditional.  Yes, they are super fun! 

The fabric patterns are a modern stocking look with all the hexagons you can handle.  What a statement these would make hanging in your home.  So, enjoy the Funky MOD Stocking collection, over in my Etsy shop, yardsandyards.  Happy decorating!

Handmade Christmas Stockings: Fun and Bright Stockings Collection

There really is something nostalgic and traditional about these handmade Christmas Stockings.  I still have the felt stocking made by my great-grandmother.  It is covered with various shaped sequins and beads, and I love that it links me to my past. 

I wanted others to enjoy that same feeling of having stockings for Christmas that are handmade with care and are meant to last for a LONG, LONG time. 

My latest collection of personalized Christmas stockings Etsy - style is called the Cool Stocking collection.  If you are looking for something a quirky, with a modern twist, then this collection is for you.

This collection is filled with fun, bright colors and playful patterns.  Even amidst all of the pinks and reds, there are some stockings for boys as well!  I love this set!

And remember, I always add embroidered name tags with each stocking as well.
