The stockings are hung

This year I wanted to make our socks. I have pinned about a million ideas to my Christmas pinboard, but fell in love with the elf style. I used this tutorial HERE. It worked great for me and I consider myself a very beginner sewer.
O this is just me pretending like I know how to use my fancy camera....That I totally don't know how to use. But I like the way this turned out. I think the socks look nice with the candy canes on the tree.
The material is flannel. It worked good!
After I finished they were hanging funny on the couldn't really see the "elf look" so I stuck batting in the toes!! 
P.s I totally forgot to add the tag on them so you can hang them...opps, so I used a pushpin to stick them to the wall....

Totally fell in love with them and am proud to have homemade items around the house this year. 


  1. I think those are adorable! I too have a "fancy" camera that I can't seem to find time to use all the bells and whistles on (there is still time) but sometimes my shots turn out great like that (by accident). Good job!

  2. Love the elf socks - you did a great job!

  3. They are so cute! I love the fabrics you chose.

  4. You're so clever, these are just lovely. I've (yet again) been lazy and had someone make stockings and toy socks for my children. It's bad really as I'm more than handy enough with the sewing machine to do them myself, I just don't seem to have enough time to do anything crafty at the moment. Although I am already planning a mountain of craft projects for next Christmas when they are a bit bigger and I have a bit more time. x

  5. Very cute ~ I honestly haven't seen elf stockings before.


  6. Those are too cute! I made ours last year too. So fun to create stockings just for your family.

  7. These are so amazingly adorable!!! Love them! I'm totally pinning these!

  8. How cute are those! LOVE! New follower. Looking forward to reading through your blog. :)
