Hi Friends! My name is Caroline and I am the crazy person behind the shop Cotton Lane and the author of the blog, Good Times Never Seem Sew Good. When I'm not blogging about my life a as a newly wed, DIYs, fashion (sort of), and other tid bits, I am either busy creating fresh goodies for my handmade shop or working non stop at a local fabric store. Are you tired yet? :)

I am so excited to be guest posting for Emily today!
I can't wait to show you how to make these simple felt stockings.
first, gather your supplies. You'll need about a yard total of felt and all the embellishments you'd like!
Also, you'll need scissors, hot glue gun, and a sewing machine.
First, cut out your stockings. Two of each color. I free-handed mine, but I know there are tons of resources out there for stocking patterns!
then, top stitch around the edge of the stockings leaving the top open. Using a fun decorative stitch makes it super cute!
Then, measure out and cut your cuff...
and sew the end together right sides together. 
Place the cuff around the top of the stocking.
glue (or sew) the cuff on.
and there are your stockings! You can stop here OR add some more pizzaz!
I got some gold cording & glued down the first letter of mine & my husband's names.
ta-da! aren't they cute?
I just love the way they turned out and it took less than an hour!

Happy crafting,
