I have had a few requests for Christmas stockings. So while I was out looking through the upholstery fabric and found the material for my tree skirt, I picked up some for a stocking too…… (and a little bit of velvet-y trim for the top.)
But had to buy enough to make 3 more.
Then turn your main fabric right side out and press flat. Then insert the lining inside of your stocking (while still inside out) and align it with the outer stocking. Sew right along the top opening of the stocking, making sure to evenly line up both the main fabric and the lining edges.
Next, cut a piece of coordinating fabric (to be used for the cuff of the stocking) that is wide enough to go all the way around and twice as tall as you’d like it. And make sure to include enough for seam allowances.
But pull it back down enough to give the cuff of the stocking a bit of a lip.
Then fold the top of the tube (about in half), down into the inside of the stocking…..leaving enough for a nice cuff. Pin the top fold in place. Then turn the stocking inside out, making sure to not poke yourself with the pins……..:) And then tuck under that raw edge and hand sew into place, all the way around the cuff.
