How to Add Embroidery to a Traditional Stocking

I couldn’t resist turning these Dollar Tree stockings into cute personalized stockings using my Embroidery Machines. I wanted to make stockings for my grand – animals :). The stockings at Dollar Tree were the perfect size, but rather plain… until I added embroidery to them.

Santa is sure to remember to fill Charlie and Tobey’s stockings this year.

I created a tutorial for you. I used my Ricoma EM1010 Multi Needle Embroidery Machine AND I also used my Jamome 500e single needle machine. Now you can follow along with whatever style of embroidery machine you have. If you haven’t gotten a machine yet and you’re looking to get into an entry level machine, I found a great deal on this 4 x 4 machine and on this 5 x 7 machine . I always recommend buying the machine with the largest hoop size that fits within your budget. I love both of my machines and can make designs up to 8 x 11″. Using the link above for the Ricoma will save you $100 on their already lowest prices of the season Black November sale.

Now, about that tutorial:

How to add Embroidery to a Stocking

Yes, I know it’s November and yes, I know we still have Thanksgiving to celebrate, but darn it anyway. It’s 2020 and I can hang my stocking if I want to. I don’t know about you, but I am so stinking excited that the Christmas season is right around the corner. I wanted to kickstart the season by embellishing this really cute stocking that I picked up in the Target Bullseye.

I used my Ricoma EM1010 embroidery machine and Chroma Embroidery Software to add my name. I love the vertical direction as opposed to the traditional horizontal direction.

In case you are interested in a multi-needle embroidery machine, Ricoma is currently offering their BLACK November sale. You can get 0% financing, free shipping and special pricing with their current sale. If you are interested and use my link you will also save an additional $100.

Here is the step by step tutorial to create this easy stocking.
