Reversible Christmas Stocking Tutorial & Unusual Stocking Fillers

Christmas present fabric by Cosmo Japan

It’s never too early to plan for Christmas because the kids love it. They almost screamed when they knew I was making them a special huge Christmas stocking (by doubling the measurements of tutorial on mirincondemariposas.blogspot.com).

Then filling a stocking with fun gifts for everyone can be a headache. I don’t like the idea of plastic toys that break straight away and usually overpriced. A bit of this and that I come into mind from my favorite online shop Modes4U:


patterned pencils and unusually shaped rubbers


writing note books and letter sets


cute stickers


craft kits


modeling chocolate and candy DIY kits


funny mugs


lunch bags and towels


bubble bath bombs


travel backpacks


novelty shaped ice cube trays

Only how many days left till Christmas?


We have been working like MAD the last few days with wrapping up Christmas presents.


We switched to cloth wrapping a few years ago by using the fabric remnants – reusable, simple, practical ways of wrapping with fabric. The Ministry of the Environment Government of Japan also provides a guide on using fabric for wrapping gifts.

Tomorrow is 1st December, time for counting down to Christmas!


My kids really like the fun way of advent calendar to count down the 25 days leading up to Christmas, especially when they find something surprised.


Christmas advent calendar can be a big year-long project, but also can be made very easily.

1) Simple, lovely and reusable with washi tapes on clothes pins. Clip the little treats up each day.

3) Tin magnetic advent calendar . The circular magnetic tins can be found in IKEA and reusable for storing herbs and spices, or you can use a mini muffin tin instead.
