Christmas Stocking: crochet one yourself

I have made a head start on this year’s Christmas gifts by making bits and pieces on the road. One thing I like to do each year is make a Christmas ornament.


This year one of my projects was to crochet these cute little Christmas stockings for my 2 adorable granddaughters and all my great nieces and nephews under 10.

I made these in honour of my mother in law who passed away just 12 months ago. She made the original ones for my kids some 25 years ago. We put a roll of lollies in each one and hang it on the tree for Christmas Day. I would like the kids to think of Oma each year when they get their lollies.

Tutorial available

If you would like the instructions to the Christmas Stockings, then just leave a comment below or send me an email.





Some of the stockings have tinsel thread in the outside colour to add that touch of glitz and glamour.

Available for sale

If you don't want to make these gorgeous stockings yourself, then you are lucky as I have made a bundle of the Christmas Stockings extra for sale. $5.00 each plus postage or 5 for $20 plus postage. Please email me if you would like to place an order.

Do you want craft tutorials?

I am also making other items, I will post them as appropiate when they are complete. I am not sure if there is enough interest to warrant making up tutorials for them. Are you interested in seeing tutorials available on this blog? Do leave me a comment with your opinions
