Ever since I got my hot little hands on the Cricut Maker, I’ve been testing out every fabric and material I can find. Now, considering we’re in the thick of holiday season, I figured I should probably do a little crafting with velvet…because, well…there really is no other fabric that says warm luxury like “velvet.”
The Cricut Maker can handle velvet without any problem…but to up the luxe, I’m adding some glittery felt to the mix…and get this…we’re going to make the glitter felt ourselves!!! Get excited friends.
These DIY velvet and glitter stockings are perfect for your mantel…or if you’re looking for a special way to package up treats for friends, these are the way to go. Scroll along with me through the full tutorial but if you want to see more detail on making these DIY velvet and glitter stockings, come join me on the Damask Love Facebook Page, where we’ll be making these LIVE!

- Cricut Maker
- Cricut EasyPress

- Glitter Iron-On

- This project also requires a bit of sewing so you’ll need a sewing machine
HOW TO MAKE GLITTER FELT
Cut a piece of glitter iron-on material and a piece of felt that are identical in size. Place the glitter iron-on material on top of the felt
Use the Cricut EasyPress to apply heat all over the glitter iron-on material. This will adhere it to the felt creating your glittery felt
CUTTING THE STOCKING PIECES
Place the glitter felt face down onto the cutting mat and cut it using the “Felt” material option on your Cricut Maker. Next, cut the stocking pieces from velvet using the “Upholstery Velvet” material option. Note: When cutting the glitter felt, select “More” pressure from the dropdown menu to ensure a clean cut.
ASSEMBLING THE VELVET AND GLITTER STOCKING
Arrange the glitter cuff and the stockings as shown. With the right side of the velvet facing up, place the stocking on top of the right side of the glitter felt. Then sew the two together along the top edge.
Arrange the stockings so that the right sides are touching and the wrong sides are on the outside. Flip up the glitter-felt cuff, and pin the velvet layers together then sew them together. DO NOT stitch the glitter cuff portions together.
Once the velvet stocking portion is sewn together, turn the stocking inside out. At this stage, the pretty velvet will be on the outside and the wrong side of the glitter felt will be face up.
Stich the sides of the cuff as shown. At this point you’ll be able to flip the cuff to show off the pretty glittery side!
