Want to upgrade your holiday decor? Our Embroidered Wool Christmas stocking is a quick and satisfying project that will look beautiful hanging on the mantle. Each bundle comes with everything you need to make a set of two Merino Wool stockings.
-1/2 yard 100% Merino Boiled wool in "Tomato"
-1 Skein of Vovó a 100% Portuguese Wool for the Embroidery and Pom Pom
-1 Yarn Darning Needle
-Printed PDF Stocking Template
-Packaged in our custom Ewe Fibers Project Tote
For our stocking we used the template included in the bundle to cut two stocking pieces. We then embroidered the details on one stocking, using a chain stitch to create the snowflake and French knots for added whimsey. Feel free to let your creativity run wild, the embroidery options are endless. From modern trees to holly leaves, or perhaps a more traditional take with your families initials, whatever you decide will create a unique and beautiful heirloom. After the embroidery details were added, we then sewed the stocking pieces together by hand, using the same wool yarn and the blanket stitch.
Alternatively you could machine sew your stocking. If you decide to machine sew your pieces together we still recommend adding your embroidery first. These embroidered wool stockings are truly an easy and satisfying project that will last for years to come.
*Inspired by the stocking project found here on Gathered. There is also a detailed description on how to create the whimsical snowflake, French knots, and the blanket stitch.
