Get in the holiday spirit with these Christmas stocking patterns. I’ve carefully selected 27 from the popular diy Christmas stockings to make your holiday decorating fun and easy – take a look!
This year, I finally did it: I started my holiday crafting early enough to post a lot of holiday sewing tutorials, yey! So that you can start your Christmas sewing early enough, too! In addition to a whole Homemade Holiday Free Pattern bundle (here), I also designed my first, full-sized Christmas stocking pattern. And then two more! Why?
So I thought I might make them easy for you to find and use – made this post!
Christmas Stocking Patterns
Here’s my list of the best free Christmas stocking patterns I have found around the net. I’ll start with mine and add a lot of other cute, smart and creative stockings to sew. Enjoy!
These Christmas stockings are what I came up with after years of sewing. I designed them to use the least possible yardage while retaining a beautiful form, the no-fold cuff is sleek and there is no gaping. Test it, you’ll love it! Make sure to sign up for my newsletter to get this one (and a bunch of other patterns from my shop!) for free. Check it out here.
But still, I kept getting questions from my readers about how to make large Christmas stockings. So I added a different, large stocking pattern to my shop (all my newsletter subscribers get a 100% OFF coupon) – and made not one but two tutorials for two totally differently looking stockings: a traditional and a modern one. This one is for a modern quilted stocking:
