There is something so fun about sewing miniature items that is so satisfying. Plus it's so easy. (Also make sure you check out this awesome round up post of DIY stockings). I've been wanting to incorporate a little more service into our Christmas this year. We usually do a secret service to someone every year, so I thought these mini stockings would be another fun idea that would be perfect for kids.

I tested them out ahead of time so that I could have my kids actually make some themselves. I think it will be a really great beginning sewing lesson for them because it can be done with felt for hand sewing or with any cotton fabric for a very easy sewing machine lesson.

 I also made up some really fun and cute You've Been Socked Printables to use with the stockings as a random acts service project. You can download them all as large or small sizes. Such a fun way to bring holiday cheer, especially when it is handmade and full of goodies. I think my kids are super excited to make these.

I made videos for both stockings and even have a pattern you can use if desired. There is no lining for the cotton ones so pretty straight forward.
