How to Make Mini Stockings: A Quick and Easy Tutorial
by Shabby Fabrics | May 28, 2015Evergreen by BasicGrey for Moda Fabrics was no exception! We whipped up some adorable little stockings that are just begging to be filled with treats and can't wait to show you how to make them!
FREE template download from Shabby Fabrics
Two fabrics of choice (one for the lining and one for the main body)- we used fat quarters from Evergreen by BasicGrey for Moda Fabrics
Download and print the free templates from Shabby Fabrics. There are a "Right" and "Left" template. Cut out one "Right" and one "Left" of the lining fabric and a "Right" and "Left" of the main body.
Pair up one lining and one main body piece with right sides together and toes pointing the same direction, sew along the top edge using a quarter inch seam allowance. Repeat with the other lining piece and main body. Press the seams open.
Place the two assembled pieces, one on top of the other, with right sides together and pin in place.
Sew around the perimeter using a quarter inch seam allowance making sure to leave about a three inch gap on the outside piece. Have the gap begin about a half inch from the seam between the lining and main body pieces. This is to make sure that the seam is hidden when the stocking is turned outside-right and folded down. See photo below for a guide on where to leave the gap!
Turn your stocking outside-right and press flat making sure that the edges of the gap are folded in a quarter of an inch
Sew the gap shut using a whip stitch or a sewing machine (this seam will be hidden so using a sewing machine is recommended)
Turn the lining inside the main body, press, and fold the top down.
Sew a small loop of ribbon to the top edge of the stocking to be able to hang it!
That's all there is to this fun project!
Until next time,
