In our home, we are big fans of mid-century modern design. When it comes to Christmas, though, most of the decorations that are available are fairly traditional. I’ve kept an eye out the last couple of years for stockings that would fit our style, but have never found any, so this year I decided to make some.
Referring to these glasses (our prized set made up of eBay and second hand shop finds) for inspiration:
I cut two stocking-shaped pieces of grey felt, then some retro shapes from red and white felt, and sewed them on.
As a finishing touch I embroidered some atomic star shapes before sewing the front and back stocking pieces together.
Another one in red, with white and gray shapes, and we have a pretty cool pair of midcentury stockings!
