Ok even though I’m loving this I’m starting to question my sanity when I said I would do 25 days of projects. As you might have seen from my previous post I make and sell wallets, purses and other goodies and as of today I’m officially booked for the month I just got some more orders in today. So I might have to change some things around.
● Your choice of fleece fabric
● Sample stocking (99 cents store)
I made this Cowboys stocking by using my kids stocking as a guide.
Trace your pattern.
Measure the top part of the stocking height and the length all the way around, mine was 4.5″x17″.
Cut out your front piece. Place your pattern over the part you want shown.
For the back piece make sure and turn over your pattern so you don’t end up with two front pieces.
Cut out the rectangle for the top part in a contrasting fabric.
Cut out a small strip of fabric 1.5″x8″ for hanging.
Pin and sew with right sides together using a 1/4″ seam all the way around the sides and bottom of your two main stocking pieces and leave the top open.
Fold the large rectangle piece in half right sides together and sew the side closed. It will now look like a circle.
Fold the small strip in half and place the open end on the inside of the stocking. Make sure your stocking is right side out and you place it on the LEFT side otherwise it will hang the wrong way.
Then turn your top piece inside out and place the seam end over your small piece.
Pin all three pieces together and sew all the way around the top of your stocking. For this one I used a 1/2″ seam just to make sure I was able to get the middle piece.
*The black clip in the picture is used to show you what side the small piece is at.
Turn over the top part and your done.
If you want to add something decorative to the top like I did with the star make sure you do it before you attach it to the base part of the stocking. I decided after that I wanted a star there so I just did it by hand sewing. I didnt want to maneuver the star under my machine.
