How To Make A Cute Personalized Dog Christmas Stocking
I say that is is a personalized dog Christmas stocking, just because I made it for our beloved dog Toby. But you could use this pattern to make this Christmas stocking for any pet with paws such as a cat!
I work from home and often the only company I have for the whole day is our rescue dog, Toby. Every day Toby and I start the day with a morning dog walk and a coffee in the park. Toby then sticks to my side for the rest of the day. He even manages to get himself into some of my craft photos.
This year whilst crafting for Christmas I decided to make something for Toby as well. As a family, we love to give Toby a few extra treats at Christmas and this personalized doggy Christmas stocking is perfect for that.
This pet Christmas stocking isn’t the only thing I’ve crafted for Toby. In the past I’ve made him some cute denim handmade dog toys before.

What You Need To Make A Personalized Dog Christmas Stocking
Red fabric for the top and paw pads. I had an old pair of red jeans and used this for the top but any red fabric would do. I also had some scrap red leather I used for the paw pads. However, you could just as easily use red felt.
Needle and thread
How To Make A Personalized Dog Christmas Stocking
Cut out the paw stocking pattern and place ontop of the burlap/hessian. I doubled over the hessian so that I could cut out 2 paws at the same time. Draw around the paw pattern with a sharpie and then cut it out.
Next sew both the cut out paws together leaving a margin of about 5mm. If you don’t have a sewing machine, burlap is very easy to sew by hand.
Turn the stitched paw inside out so that the stitching is on the inside. For the cuff I used the bottom of a pair of red jeans which I stitched to the top of the dog Christmas stocking. If you don’t have a pair of old red jeans just use some other red fabric such as felt. The cuff was about 9cm long.
Next cut out the paw pads from the Christmas stocking pattern and use them as a template. Draw around the pad templates on your chosen red fabric and cut out the pads. I used scrap leather for this but craft felt will work just as well.
Using a fabric glue stick the paw pads onto the front of the dog Christmas stocking.
Stitch on a loop for hanging the stocking on the edge of the cuff. I used a belt loop from the jeans.
All that is left to do now is to fill and hang the stocking. I know Toby won’t really know whether or not he had a stocking but he will enjoy the treats inside. Also as a loved member of the family he deserves to have his own personalized dog Christmas stocking.

We are delighted to be taking part in a Christmas Stocking making project.
Our challenge is to come up with a fabulous design using some basic craft materials. Since the kids are always disappointed that we don’t get the pets any presents for Christmas, we decided to make a stocking and some home-made dog biscuits for our lovely Labrador Sophie.
How to Make a Christmas Stocking for your dog
To make our Christmas stocking we used:
- Open weave Jute
- Iron on lining fabric
- Pieces of Felt
We started by finding a Labrador image to use as a template, and cut it, and some bone shapes out of some black and white felt.
We also cut a piece to trim our stocking and paired it with a pretty length of lace ribbon.
The Jute we chose has a beautiful open weave, so we used an iron-on lining fabric to stabilise it. This should minimise it fraying and losing its shape, once cut.
We marked out our stocking shapes (making sure they were mirror images), and cut them out.
Before sewing the two stocking pieces together, we checked how all our embellishments looked, and positioned them where we wanted them all to be.
Once happy with our arrangement we sewed all the felt pieces onto our stocking by hand.
Then machine sewed our two stocking sides together with the lining facing out so that we would get a neat finish when we turned out stocking the right way around.
How to Make Homemade Dog Biscuits
Once we finished our stocking, it was time to fill it. We decided we would make some lovely homemade dog biscuits to stuff inside. We used.
- 3 cups Oats
- 2 ripe Bananas
- 1 cup Peanut Butter
We ground the oats in our spice mill and combined them with the mashed bananas and peanut butter into biscuit dough.
We rolled it out and cut out bone shapes.
We wanted our biscuits to be hard and crunchy, so we gave them ten mins at about 180 C and then reduced the heat down to about 130 C and gave them another 30 minutes.
We had lots of fun designing and making our Christmas dog stocking. Sophie appears delighted to have one of her own finally and seems determined not to take her eyes off it!

Sophie is such a beauty. And the stocking looks absolutely so pretty and I am sure Sophie loved the stocking and the dog biscuits you gave her. The recipe seems to be delicious. Hope you keep posting more.
Thanks for your kind comments Evelyn 🙂
Well she must have really loved it…lol Mine gets belly ache from bananas, says what is that? I’m not eating it! to peanut butter. But he gets his own home made treats. Free from wheat and dairy (along with a few other things that upset the tum) He gets a tuna flatbread, chopped up and frozen, then defrosted as needed. Vegan cheese biscuits, and I blitz mince and cooked rice and bake in the oven. Also freeze and defrost as needed.
This Christmas I made the effort to treat him, as I found out he steals your presents from under the tree (just as well he’s a midget). I made him a new tweed harness and wrapped one of the mice treats, so 2 presents under the tree in the morning for him. He was straight for the treat and ripped the paper off, when he’d eaten that he went for the new harness and opened that….lol no help allowed.
Forgot to say make sure that your peanut butter does not contain XYLITOL as it is toxic to dogs.
- Empty 2-liter soda bottle
- X-Acto or craft knife
- Christmas fabric ½ yard
- Glue gun and glue sticks
- Fabric scissors
- Fur trim
- Burlap ribbon 1” wide
- Foam core or cardboard
- Ruler or tape measure
- Christmas embellishments
- Goodies to fill the stockings with.
1. Cut your fabric into a piece measuring 22” x 8”
2. Cut your burlap ribbon at 22”
3. Remove the label from your empty 2-liter bottle and make sure that you rinse it out so it’s not sticky.
4. From the bottom of the bottle, measure up 2.5”. Mark this all the way around your bottle.
5. Insert your craft knife where you marked the bottle and cut all the way around, so you are left with two pieces. Set the bottom piece aside.
6. Measure 5 inches up on the larger piece and mark it with a marker.
7. Cut this all the way around in the same manner. Save the large cylinder from the middle section and discard the top section.
8. On your foam core or cardboard, set the large piece down and set the bottom piece upside down in front of it. This will make the bottom of your stocking or boot.
9. Take a marker and trace around both pieces.
10. Remove both pieces from the foam core and cut out the marked areas with an X-Acto knife or craft knife.
11. Set the 2 bottle pieces back on the cut-out foam core piece and attach the bottle to the foam core with pieces of tape, secure it from the bottle sides down under the bottom of the foam core.
12. Take the fabric and center it in front of the stocking. Wrap this around and secure at the back of the boot with hot glue.
13. Go back around the bottom of the boot and secure in several places with hot glue.
14. Fold the front of fabric over the boot and secure with hot glue.
15. Fold the top of the fabric in the boot.
16. Take the piece of burlap ribbon and glue it around the bottom of the boot and secure in the back with hot glue.
17. Take the fur trim and fold it over the top of the boot. Secure with hot glue.
18. Add Christmas embellishments to the front of the stocking.
19. Fill your stocking with treats and enjoy!

My small dog remained interested in this toy for days, which is pretty good for her. She had no problem getting out the first two pieces of coal, but the last one was more difficult for her, and helped to keep her engaged.
We are so glad your pup loved her coal! But it is clear she is far from the Naughty List! What a cutie pie ❤️️
