It’s that time once again! Christmas is perfect around the corner and that implies we’re getting a head start on spreading the cheer with this DIY stocking tutorial. Have fun customizing it with the material of your option to make it the best addition to your holiday decoration. You will need:1 fat quarter 18in x 22in/ 46cm x 56cm Christmas fabric for outer layer
On a large piece of paper or cardstock, draw out your equipping. Our finished measurements are 11″ x 16″ (28cm x 40cm). You can also find a free PDF downloadable pattern online to use if you wish. We pieced the external layer to consist of a heel and toe area by tracing around the primary area and cutting off a curved heel section and a straight toe area. Include 1/4 in/ 0.75 cm seam allowance to each piece where you cut the pattern apart. If you would rather not piece the external equipping (the heel and toe pieces), then simply use your pattern as-is. Use a 1/4 in/ 0.75 cm joint allowance for all joints unless otherwise specified.Cut your fabric
as follows: Christmas material– 2 mirror images of main equipping piece Lining fabric– 2 mirror images of primary equipping piece
the seams to one side.< img alt= "Do It Yourself Christmas Stocking"width=" 675"height="333 "src= "https://cms.wunderlabel.com/Blog/2017/Tutorials/christmas_stocking/chaussette2.jpg"/ > If utilizing a label, centre it on a lining piece about 1in/ 2.5 cm below the cuff seam. Sew together close to the edge of the woven label. Stitch the heel and toe accent pieces on. The toe is easy since it’s a straight line seam, but you will need to pin/clip the heel piece on at the edges and in the middle, then keep the raw edges lined up as you stitch
along the curve. Press the seam allowances towards the primary fabric. Pin the batting onto the incorrect side of the outer stockings and baste together near to the raw edges
, or fuse together if utilizing fusible fleece. You could likewise include batting/fleece to the cuff if desired. Pin/clip the external stockings best sides together, matching all joints and sew together. Do not sew throughout the top of the equipping! Clip the curves so that they lie flat when the equipping is the proper way out. Repeat for the linings. You don’t need to clip the curves here, but don’t forget to leave a 4in/ 10cm space for turning. Backstitch at either side of the turning hole and press the seam allowance open up to make it easier to stitch closed in the future. Turn the external equipping properly out and position it inside the lining, best sides together and making certain the toes are pointing in the exact same direction. Line up the raw edges around the cuff and pin/clip them together, matching the side seams. Stitch.
Turn the stocking properly out through the turning hole you left earlier. You can either sew it nearby hand utilizing a ladder sew or merely pin/clip the edges together and stitch near the edge with your sewing machine.
Tuck the lining inside the outer stocking and press, then fold the cuff down and press again. Stitch the ribbon and button
on to the leading left corner of your stocking, through the cuff and the primary part of the stocking. Ensure your stitches are strong so that they do not break when Santa fills the stocking!
