Supplies to Make a Low-Sew Stocking for Christmas
- Two fat quarters of fabric
- Stocking Pattern
- Sewing Machine
- Needle and thread
Start by cutting out the stocking shapes - cut two mirrored pieces from each fabric.
Pin the pairs, right sides together. Stitch around the sides, leaving the top open. On the pair you'll be using for the lining, leave a 3" gap in the stitching. You'll use this for turning later.
Turn one set right side out, and tuck into the other. Pin around the top.
Stitch around the top, then turn both right side out through the 3" gap you left earlier.
Tuck stitch the hole closed with a needle and thread.
Tuck the lining into the outer stocking, then pin around the top.
Stitch around the top, 1/8" from the edge, to secure the lining in place.
Cut 8" of ribbon, stitch to the back of the stocking to hang.
Your stocking is complete! Make as many as Santa will need to fill up for Christmas morning!
