How to Make a Christmas Stocking for Your Dog

We are delighted to be taking part in a Christmas Stocking making project. Our challenge is to come up with a fabulous design using some basic craft materials. Since the kids are always disappointed that we don’t get the pets any presents for Christmas, we decided to make a stocking and some home-made dog biscuits for our lovely Labrador Sophie.

How to Make a Christmas Stocking for your dog

To make our Christmas stocking we used:

Open weave Jute

Iron on lining fabric

Pieces of Felt

Ribbon

We started by finding a Labrador image to use as a template, and cut it, and some bone shapes out of some black and white felt. We also cut a piece to trim our stocking and paired it with a pretty length of lace ribbon.

The Jute we chose has a beautiful open weave, so we used an iron-on lining fabric to stabilise it. This should minimise it fraying and losing its shape, once cut. We marked out our stocking shapes (making sure they were mirror images), and cut them out.

Before sewing the two stocking pieces together, we checked how all our embellishments looked, and positioned them where we wanted them all to be.

Once happy with our arrangement we sewed all the felt pieces onto our stocking by hand. Then machine sewed our two stocking sides together with the lining facing out so that we would get a neat finish when we turned out stocking the right way around.

Once we finished our stocking, it was time to fill it. We decided we would make some lovely homemade dog biscuits to stuff inside. You can find the recipe here.

We had lots of fun designing and making our Christmas dog stocking. Sophie appears delighted to have one of her own finally and seems determined not to take her eyes off it!
