Super Simple Stocking Tutorial
- Stocking pattern (available for free HERE)
- 1/3 yd of fabric for outside of stocking, cut into 2 11x17 inch pieces
- 1/3 yd fabric for inside of stocking, cut into 2 11x17 inch pieces
- 1/3 yd low loft batting, cut into 2 11x17 inch pieces
- 1/4 yd fabric for cuff of stocking, cut into 2 5x7 inch pieces and a strip of fabric 1.75 x 5 for hanging tag
|2. Make a quilt sandwich by layering 1 piece of outside fabric, 1 piece of batting and 1 piece of inside fabric right sides out. Make another fabric sandwich with remaining fabric pieces.|
7. Fold the bottom of your cuff 1.5 inches under (see picture) and iron flat.
8. Fold down the cuff so it lays nicely on the outside fabric. Iron. Sew along the fold using a decorative stitch. I used a blanket stitch. Repeat for the other stocking piece.
9. Cut a strip of fabric 1.75 x 5 inches for the hanging tag. Fold in half and iron. Sew the raw sides together and one of the ends using a .25 inch seam. (see picture). Pull fabric through the hole, turning inside out so the seams are on the inside. I found that a chopstick or pencil helps.
10. Place tag so raw edges face the outside seam of the stocking. Be sure to place at an upward angle as shown in the picture. Pin to the front of the stocking.
11. Pin stocking right sides together and sew with a .25 inch seam around the stocking, leaving the top open.
12. Turn stocking inside out through the top hole. Voila! You have finished your stocking! Super simple, right?
