Tassel Christmas Stocking Sewing Project

You Will Need

How to Make

  1. Download, print and cut out your template, sticking the pieces together.
  2. Fold your words fat quarter in half so the words read as normal. Place your template on, pin in place and cut so you have 2 pieces.
  3. Repeat the above for your white on white fabric, so you have 4 pieces in total.
  4. Cut your piece of trim in half and pin each half to the top of your blue stocking pieces, about 2.5 inches down from the top edge. Stitch in place through the centre of the trim. Trim any excess trim that sticks out of the sides.
  5. Put your blue stocking pieces right sides together and stitch from one side of the top edge to the other side with 10mm seam allowance. Leave the top edge open. Clip the curves.
  6. Repeat the above for your white pieces, leaving a gap of about 8cm at the bottom of the stocking for turning out later.
  7. Cut a rectangle of fabric from your blue fabric, approx 3cm x 16cm. Fold in half along the long edge, right sides together. Stitch down the long edge and one short edge with a 10mm seam allowance. Trim the seam allowance and turn right sides out to create a tube. This will be your hanging loop.
  8. Time to layer up your stocking! Leave your white stocking inside out. Turn your blue stocking right sides out, then place inside the white stocking, lining up the top edges, and making sure the right sides are together. Make your hanging loop into a loop and place between the two layers in the corner, pinning so the loop hangs down into the stocking. Pin the white and blue pieces of the top edge together, keeping the seams open.
  9. Stitch all the way along the top edge to create an inside-out stocking.
  10. Turn the stocking out through the gap in the white stocking. Press.
  11. Press under the seam allowance of the gap in the lining, then top stitch shut a few millimetres away from the edge. Push the lining inside the stocking to finish.
