Recycled Denim Christmas Stockings

Posted on July 7, 2013

It’s Christmas in July for me as I’m working on mini Christmas stockings. The Warmth for Warriors organization needs 2000 mini Christmas stockings for the troops. They have just kicked off their 2013 Christmas Stocking Drive. The socks need to be around 6 inches long and will be filled with a small bar of soap, shampoo, body wash or similar item and given to the troops as a little Christmas gift. The socks can be sewn, knitted or crocheted and do need to be all handmade.

These recycled denim Christmas socks were all sewn on my Singer treadle sewing machine. It was fun to use the treadle to sew the denim sock shells. Once sewn, I just turn the socks so the right sides are showing and fold under the top to the inside. I then crochet a top and hanging loop onto the denim. Here is my free recycled denim stocking tutorial for the mini socks. The tutorial includes the sewing and crochet pattern details.

So if you are looking for a fun and rewarding crafting project, I invite you to join us over at the Warmth for Warriors group on Ravelry to make mini Christmas stockings for the troops. Your help would be greatly appreciated.

    They look great! Will have to give it a try myself……although I cant say they will look anywhere near as good as yours. Well done! Keep it up!

    These are really adorable and easy to make. I remember using stocking kits last year but I think this year, I’ll look for old denim instead. Thanks for sharing!
