Halloween is over so naturally, it’s time to get in the Christmas spirit, right? Well, some may say it’s too early to start celebrating Christmas but I say, “heck, why not?!” While rocking out to Christmas music and sipping on peppermint hot chocolate, we made these very simple and very cute Christmas stockings. Take a look at our tutorial. It’s so easy, quick and perfect for beginners!
What you will need:
1) Cut out the pattern pieces
2) Tape the pattern pieces together
3) Lay out the lining fabric and the main fabric on top of each other
4) Pin down the pattern pieces
5) Stocking- Cut out 2 stocking pieces with the main fabric and 2 stocking pieces with the lining
6) Stocking Cuff- Cut out two pieces on the fold of the fabric
7) Contrast piece- Cut out two pieces of a contrast piece of your choice (we went with the white with cute polka dots)
Tip: Iron all your fabric after cutting it!
8) Place the long edge of your contrasting piece on top of your stocking cuff piece, both face down (pattern side facing down) and sew together using a ¼” seam allowance.
Tip: To set the seam, place the fabric face down and iron down. Then, fold the seam to make sure you can’t see it on the white side and iron it down.
9) Place the long edge of your contrasting and stocking cuff piece that you just sewed together face down on top of one of the main stocking pieces. Sew together. Repeat on the other side of the cuff using the lining stocking piece and making sure that the foot of the stocking is facing the same way.
10) Repeat step 9 with your other pieces of fabric. This is what the pieces should look like sewn when sewn together.
11) Place the two pieces face down, on top of each other (patterns facing each other) and pin all the way around the stocking but leaving a gap at the base of the foot with the lining fabric for turning out purposes. Start sewing at the base of the foot with the lining fabric and sew up the leg, around the foot with your main fabric and down to the bottom of the foot with the lining fabric.
Tip: Make sure your seams match up when you pin because the finished product will look prettier!
12) Pull the main stocking fabric through the gap at the foot with the lining fabric and turn everything right side out so that the patterns are now showing. Iron it down.
13) Sew up the gap.
14) Push the lining fabric inside the main fabric so that the lining foot is neatly pressed inside the main stocking with no lumps or bumps. Make sure it looks nice and smooth.
15) Fold over the cuff of the stocking. The stocking should look like this:
16) Add a loop of ribbon to hang up your stocking. Put a cute button on the inside of the stocking for decoration.
17) Here is the finished product!
