What You’ll Needed:

 

Step by Step Instructions:

  1. Template Prep: Begin by trimming any excess from the PDF template.
  2. Assembly: Carefully stick the template pieces together.
  3. Main Fabric Cut-out: With the right sides of the main fabric pieces together, place the pattern on top and cut around the fabric.
  4. Lining Prep: Repeat the above step for the lining fabric.
  5. Cuff Creation: Use the fleece material and cut out the cuff on the fold. Then, fold the cuff with the right sides together, allowing for a 1cm seam allowance. Sew along the width.
  6. Loop (cut and sew): Cut the loop fabric (3” x 10”) and sew around the edges.
  7. Bringing it Together: Lay all fabric pieces with the right sides together. Use pins or clips to keep them in place.
  8. Stitching: Sew along the edges, maintaining a 1cm seam allowance. Be sure to clip around any curves.
  9. Revealing the Design: Turn the main fabric piece right side out.
  10. Lining Insertion: Tuck the lining fabric into the main fabric piece. Ensure the open-end seams of both fabrics align and clip them together.
  11. Cuff and Loop Addition: Insert the fleece material cuff into the open end of the stocking, then place the hanging loop between the lining and main fabric at one side. Sew around the top, connecting all raw edges.
  12. The Final Touch: Gently pull out the cuff, turn it downwards, and there you have it – your very own personalized Christmas stocking!
