DIY Christmas Stockings {Stiletto Boot and Skates}

Are you like me and starting to feel panic setting in with all the "Christmas" you see everywhere? It's only November 10th and I'm feeling stressed that I'm behind the eight ball!

This week Mrs. Claus' workshop is opening for business. Every year I like to give those on my Christmas List handmade gifts made with love by moi.  If you have a Fashionista or a Hockey Player on your list, I thought I would share some gift idea inspiration with you today.  

DIY Stiletto Boots and Hockey Skate Christmas Stockings


Before I start let me explain that I AM NOT an expert sewer - far from it. I was able to successfully make these as a novice and if you know a little bit about sewing, then so can you! I made 13 of these funky Stiletto Stockings and they were such a hit!

As you can see, I made them using two different ribbon styles - one with Zebra Print and the other with black Taffeta ribbon.

So, are you feeling brave enough to make these gorgeous "Brangway" Stockings?  The pattern for these and others are available for purchase online in a PDF format at Sewing Patterns by Arkathwyn Designs - Arkathwyn Designs. I am not affiliated with this website - just sharing the love!

These were also a hit!  In hindsight, however, I wish I had used cardboard to line the blades instead of fusible interfacing.  I would also line the shoelace openings with eyelets but I had already assembled the boot when I had this great insight.
