want to personalize your falling flakes stocking without breaking out the embroidery supplies? with only scissors, your sewing machine, and a fabric glue stick, it's easy to add felt names to your stockings.
first things first, you'll need the names you want to put on your stockings. then you can either free-hand them or use any word processing software to choose font, size, and print.
cut out the paper letters/word and place wrong side down on your felt. trace around your shapes and then cut out felt. (hint: i'm a huge fan of my Havel's serrated scissors, and they are perfect for this!)
after your felt is cut out, apply glue to the back side of your letters. (i can't vouch for all fabric glue sticks, but i used the Clover Fabric Adhesive Stick and i was really impressed.) stick felt to stocking and allow time for glue to dry.
with your sewing machine, stitch on your felt. i used one stitch line in the center of the felt, and attached small items (like the dot on the i) with two stitches back and forth.
i chose red thread that blends in with the felt, but you could use a contrasting thread and/or decorative stitches for a different look.
this stack of yummy stockings is on its way to my sister's house as an early christmas present! i hope they enjoy them for years to come... and that i spelled everyone's names right ;)
