If you follow me on Instagram, you know I’ve started stitching a needlepoint Christmas stocking for Teddy! I’m so excited about this new project and love having a reason to stay off my phone before bed. The canvas is by Bauble Stockings (which also sells some of their designs already needlepointed if you’d rather not DIY!) and I purchased it through KC Needlepoint. I’d been looking for needlepoint stocking canvases forever but felt like I kept seeing the same things over and over until I landed on this site and fell in love with just about everything. I’ve already ordered this one to stitch next for Peter!

  1. How special! I love the one you’ve chosen. I had a canvas made to replicate the stocking my grandmother stitched for me for my son Brooks and daughter Caroline.

  2. I love those stockings! I’m currently stitching an ornament and a large canvas that will be a pillow and trying to help a friend by stitching a belt for her. All my canvases are from my local needlepoint shop- The Picket Fence in Rhode Island, they’re the best!

  3. If you are thinking about needlepoint … not sure … try watching” pointing it out on .” . you -tube each week they talk needlepoint . Each own wonderful needlework stores offering wonderful canvas , threads the works all you need .. there are groups that meet and stitch ,if you are lucky enough to have a local needlepoint shop in your reach .. go for it .. they offer classes ,retreats ,some have weekly groups ,if not join a zoom group . It’s all very relaxing ,stimulating when you find the next canvas challenge .

  4. I have done needlepoint in the past, but I have been knitting for the last number of years. I have made a few knitted Christmas stockings.
    Your stockings are wonderful patterns.

  5. I love Teddy’s stocking! I’m working on one right now for my nephew and I found it to be sort of unwieldy until a lovely woman at my LNS suggested scroll bars. They have been such a game changer-I’m so much faster when I’m not trying to navigate the whole giant canvas. I know not everyone likes them but they’ve been super helpful for me.

  6. Aww, how beautiful! I needlepointed a Goodnight Moon stocking for my son over two years and finally finished JUST before Christmas! I’m working on a few smaller things now, including an ornament and a matchbox cover I’m going to have finished into a case for matches!

  7. Hi! These canvases are gorgeous and are inspiring me to start on one for my little boy! Do you prefer wool or silk fiber? Thanks!
