This mini Christmas stocking is great for decorating your holiday tree. You can either use them separately as tree ornaments, or make a diy Christmas garland out of them. Even better, make both and then add matching full-sized diy stockings to complete your holiday home decor and use year after year! You can use my free full-sized Christmas stocking pattern for that, it's being downloaded a lot these days! Also, make sure to match it to your Christmas tree skirt (which you can DIY too using one of these 40 free tree skirt patterns!)

How To Make Diy Christmas Garland - Steps
Step 1 - Print out the mini stocking ornament pattern
Step 2 - Cut the pieces
Once cut, this is what you should have: two identical cuffs and two mirrored polka-dot mini stocking pieces:
Step 3 - Attach the cuff to the main stocking piece
Create a crease in the center so it WON'T lay flat. This is how I do it:
Step 4 - Stitch the two stocking parts together
Unfold the sewn cuff and press the seam allowance towards the bottom of the stocking. Then place the pieces right sides together and stitch, using a ¼" (6mm) seam allowance. Go slowly and move patiently through the curves.
Step 5 - Trim and notch the seam allowance
Notch and clip the curved portions of the seam allowance for easier turning.
Step 6 - Turn right side out and fill
Step 7 - Attach to a piece of pompom trim
Once you've finished sewing, move on to the next little sewing project - sew a few of these cute diy mitten ornaments. A perfect combination and you can even do them in matching colors to create a baby's first holiday ornament set!
