The Mini Stockings Advent Calendar pattern is finished and it was so much fun to make!
You get patterns for 25 mini stockings – just the right size to hold candy, small toys, gift cards and more. Open a stocking every night to count down the days until Christmas!
One of my favorite things about this pattern is that you’re getting 25 different repeat patterns that are very easy to stitch. (I only used the four most basic stitches – all of which are covered in my free Embroidery 101 class. The pattern also has links to the how-to videos for all of them.)
You can use these designs on so many other projects! I’ll be showing some samples of other things you can make in the weeks to come. 🙂
My other favorite thing is that you stitch the designs on a grid – which makes it so easy to get your stitches perfect! Here’s an example of what one stocking looks like all stitched up, before I soak away the Sulky Sticky Fabri-solvy.
See how easy it is to get the stitch length perfect and the spacing perfect?
And here’s that same stocking after soaking.
I just love how those thread colors glow against the dark purple felt!
Speaking of colors – I stitched all of my samples using the Tutti Frutti felt and thread bundles – but you could do any colors you like!
This red thread on white felt is so fresh and pepperminty!
And I especially love the way the white thread on Tahitian sunset felt looks like royal icing on gingerbread. 🙂
Your family will pull hang this advent calendar every year and have so much fun finding surprises in the stockings every night!
