I just completed a new Christmas stocking for a newborn named Lucas.

After a brief discussion with his mom about a train design, I came up with this rough sketch:

Next I cut out the felt, sewed on the front half of the cuff, and the heel/toe triangles. Then I added the train track with glitter glue, and cut out most of the train cars and the engine.

The mom sent photos of her son and two of his favorite toys (“dragon” and “puppy”), who are now on the train, as well as some pine trees.

Next I added the name and embellished it with an assortment of sequins and beads.

The reveal!

Detail of the finished stocking includes snowy pine trees with beads and star-shaped sequins, and train cars and caboose details including embroidery, sequins, beads, and glitter.

Here is Lucas the Elf driving the train with his friends. His hat is trimmed with a wee jingle bell, and the train wheels are vintage work clothes buttons.

I love to make stockings!
