Christmas stocking

Today’s Monday make is a more festive idea, a Christmas stocking, this one is for my gorgeous nephew’s first Xmas

I used the really popular Cherry Tiny Deer fabric from the Moda range at Trixie Lixie which is selling super fast at the moment. I lined it with some of our new red cotton lawn and decorated the top with red Pompom

Firstlyl I drew a stocking template which I then used to cut out 2 main fabric pieces, 2 lining fabric pieces and 2 pieces of wadding (batting)

I cut the lining 10cm longer so that I could turn it over to finish the top.

Place the 2 main pieces right sides together and then add a piece of wadding to each side pin and sew these together

I used my excellent new Fiskar pinking shears to cut all my fabric pieces out so that I wouldn’t need to neaten any seams

Next trim the seams around the curves then I turn the main piece the right way around. Then pin and sew up the lining when that is done place it inside the main body and turn over the top to neaten. at this point I decided to add some red pom pom and a piece of red velvet ribbon to hang it up with.

All it needs now is for Santa to fill it with goodies!
