Christmas Stocking

I had some left over hessian so decided to make three mini Christmas stockings for our daughters. I asked the eldest two what they would like on theirs and they chose “doggie” and “snowflakes and presents”

Materials

Pins

Ruler

Scissors

Pencil

Pattern paper

Hessian fabric

Thick wadding or felt

Coloured felt

Binding

Ribbon
  
  

First sketch a basic outline of a sock. Draw onto pattern paper including fold over piece (see below). Add 1cm seam allowance. Cut x2 sock piece and X1 fold over piece.

Including Sean allowance the sock opening width is 15cm and length of fold over piece is 30cm 

Draw template and cut simple applique felt shapes. Stick and/or stitch to front sock piece

  
  
Sew edges of wrong sides (not opening). Sew in binding then turn right way around

  
Cut wadding  

 

Stitch the two short sides together and fold over to slot into position on the sock. Stitch in place.

 

  

Sew 5cm of bias to make loop. Stitch loop to stocking. 

Sew ribbon to hide the fold over seam and tie into a bow. 

       

They are a lovely size for little gifts and little hands and hopefully will last many years.
