Stockings For Doggies!


Hi everyone! Christmas is right around the corner and it's so important to not forget your four legged family members during this happy and festive time! I have two dogs and one grand-dog that I love dearly and always buy them tasty and fun goodies for their stockings! All of the two-legged members of the family have hand-made, personalized Christmas stockings so I thought it only right to create some hand-made, personalized stockings for the dogs!


I got the idea for the bone shaped stockings on Pinterest (of course!) and then created my own pattern to use. All of the stockings were cut from canvas duck cloth and lined with bright cotton broadcloth. I  wanted to add in festive colors too, so each stocking has a colorful band and big bow in a Christmas-y pattern!


Glenn is my grand-dog and the oldest of the trio at 2.2 years and spends a lot of his days with me while his humans work. Since he is the alpha of this group, I gave his stocking a bold pattern of festive stripes and added in green twine and a bright green ribbon for trim.


I hand drew all the names with Sharpie permanent markers and gave each tag cute felt accents. Glenns' tag is decorated with felt and wooden stars, a bone and a happy red jingle bell!


Django is the younger brother to Glenn and the little man of the group! He gets a charming plaid for his stocking with sweet red accents of ribbon and twine.


Djangos' tag has fun polka dots along with an adorable felt Christmas tree. I added in a paw tag and a small silver bell.


Avery, the only girl, is just a puppy at 8 months and full of energy and sweetness. Her stocking is decorated with a girly polka dot trim and bow and accented with girly gingham and rickrack!


Her tag was lettered in bright green to be different from the boys! It also has a bright felt snowflake and heart for trim along with sparkly sequins for a more feminine touch! I can't wait to fill these stockings with holiday toys and treats. I will be including these home-made biscuits too! While you're at it, check out Barkbox- our dogs get one every month and looove them!
