My quilt guild makes stockings for charity at Christmas. They provide the fabric and a pattern. Putting the stockings together was a breeze!
First, I traced the pattern.
The guild had samples with ribbon trim on them, and I didn’t want to make subpar stockings. So, having cut out the stocking pieces, I then pinned ribbon to them. The ribbon pinning was actually the hardest part.
I also folded the top edge under twice to hide the raw edges, and pinned.
Then I sewed the top edges and the ribbons down.
I made little hooks by sewing a long thin piece of fabric lengthwise to make a tube and turning the tube inside out. I used a safety pin to turn it inside out.
I pinned the matching sides of each stocking together with a hook.
I sewed around the edges and then turned the stocking inside out.
I was able to make several stockings with the fabric the guild had provided me. I ended up with enough large scraps to make one more stocking. I sewed all the large scraps together to make pieces of fabric large enough for the patterns.
I cut the stocking pieces and did the same thing I had done with the other stockings.
It was fun and easy to put the stockings together. Such a breeze.
