DIY Christmas Stocking with Precuts

Let’s talk about Christmas Stockings… do you have tried-and-true stockings that come out every year without fail or do you change the colors and themes of Christmas over the years and like to update your stockings to coordinate?

Have you ever used a stocking as a gift bag? It’s another fun way to bring the holiday joy to the season.

In the video tutorial below I used the Holiday Cheer 5″ stackers by My Mind’s Eye from Riley Blake Designs to make this cutie. Each stocking uses 10 squares so with 2 yards of solid fabric and one stacker you can make 4 stockings in an afternoon.
