Oxfam Fashion: DIY Stockings

Oxfam DIY stocking | Ship-Shape and Bristol Fashion

I don’t know about you, but for me, a stocking full of small gifts and chocolate is a Christmas essential. I’ve woken up to find one waiting on the handle of my bedroom door since I can remember, but this year, since I’m a grown up and everything, I decided it would be better for my mum’s sanity if I no longer asked her to do the honours.

So it was that I decided to make Christmas stockings for myself and Mr Ship-Shape this year, and start a festive tradition of our own. I’m not the best with a needle and thread, but I wanted something personal that we could enjoy for years to come, which is why I decided to attempt making both stockings from scratch and write a DIY blog post about it for Oxfam.

Apparently my first attempt, above, looks like an oven glove, which, after an hour and a half of wrestling with my sewing machine, didn’t go down to well, but if you want to have a crack at making your own, you can read the DIY Christmas stocking post here.

I can’t be the only adult out there who enjoys receiving a stocking, can I?

Merry Christmas!
