These little stockings are not only cute but oh so easy to stitch up! I made five for my garland but you could easily make more to make a longer garland. You can also give the individual stockings as gifts, just fill them up with some sweets and attach a tag! After I made them a few people told me that they thought the stockings would also be cute to use to “wrap” a gift card for Christmas. I checked and a gift card does fit inside!
Want to make some? Here’s what you’ll need:
Fat Quarters of Christmas Fabric
Stocking Pattern (download for free on my site)
Gold Clips, I used the ones from Jen’s Home + Made Line
For each stocking cut two pieces from the stocking pattern piece and one piece from the cuff pattern piece.
With right sides facing stitch around the perimeter of the stocking with a 1/4″ seam allowance. Clip the curves.
Fold the cuff piece in half lengthwise and stitch with a 1/2″ seam allowance. Press seam open
Fold the sewn piece in half with the wrong sides facing each other. Press.
Turn the stocking right side out and slip the sewn cuff piece into the stocking. The wrong side of the stocking will be facing the right side of the cuff and the raw edges of all will be even.
Stitch using a 1/4″ seam allowance.
Pull the cuff out of the stocking. Press the seam down. Press the stocking.
Fold over the cuff.
Use a gold clip to attach the stocking to the twine!
