Bucilla Felt Christmas Stocking Kits - New Selection!

We have a new selection of Felt Christmas Stocking Kits for the 2010 holiday season. They're quality Felt Applique Kits from Bucilla, a well known & trusted brand name in the crafting industry. You'll find them in the Christmas Craft Kits section of the store!

The Princess Felt Stocking Kit is a lovely Christmas stocking design, perfect for girls of all ages!

The Princess is dressed in a beautiful Christmas gown and appears to be leaving the Castle to attend a starlight Christmas ball or other special holiday occasion.

This Bucilla felt applique stocking kit include stamped felts, cotton floss, metallic thread, sequins & beads, needles, and instructions.

Handmade felt Christmas stockings become treasured keepsakes. My daughters love their felt stockings and look forward to bringing them out every holiday season.

The Cruising Santa Felt Stocking Kit is a cool Christmas stocking design, perfect for boys of all ages!

This Bucilla felt stocking kit includes all of the materials and instructions you need to make this creative Christmas stocking for a loved one to enjoy every holiday season.

You'll want to have a pair of precision craft scissors on hand for cutting out the felt pieces in your kit.  Some of the felt pieces are small and have intricate shapes.

The Woodland Snowman Felt Stocking Kit is a new 2010 Christmas stocking design from Bucilla.

Kit includes stamped felts, cotton floss, sequins & beads, needles, instructions, and directions for personalization.

Your finished felt stocking will be approximately 18-inches long.

Fall is the perfect time of year to get started on your felt Christmas craft projects. The kids & grandkids are back in school, the weather is cooling down, and there's still some quiet time left before the holiday rush is upon us.

Some of the stocking kits will take longer to make than others.  It really depends on the complexity of the individual design.  If you're short on time, look for stockings that have fewer pieces to applique and less detailed embroidery work.

If you do have the time to spend on one of the more detailed kits, you won't be sorry. The results are truly amazing! And, because Bucilla stocking kits use quality materials, your handmade felt stocking will stand the test of time.

Visit the Christmas Craft Kits section of the store to see our complete selection of felt applique craft kits, including stocking kits, ornament kits, tree skirt kits, and more.

Weekend Kits offers a wide variety of Creative Craft Kits for the Christmas season and all year.  Stop by today and be ready to start crafting for the holidays on your next Weekend at Home!
