Everyone has worked on a few skills this year, and stockings are a great way to introduce new techniques to young sewers. They’re also a great craft to fill up an afternoon if the family could use a new set of holiday chimney-wear!
Now you can get started with some classic plaid or any fabric that catches your eye. The faux fur trim will give all of your stockings a dash of elegance, and it’s super simple to attach!
This materials list is for one stocking, so if you’re making many stockings, you might want to up your fabric and faux fur trim volume.
If you already have a stocking on hand, you can simply trace the outline of that stocking onto your fabric. If you don’t have a stocking to trace, you can sketch out a reasonably sized stocking shape, and you’re ready to get started. Standard stockings are approximately 20-inches long (considering seam allowances), 12-inches wide at the foot, and about 8-inches wide across the cuff.
Last year, we had a more beginner stocking tutorial, but we wanted to take it up a notch for our intermediate sewers. We hope you enjoyed this tutorial and if you have any questions about any products, please feel free to contact us. If you do try our tutorial, please post on Instagram and tag us!
