Looking to make new Christmas Stockings this year? Or just want a fun way to practice your free-motion quilting? These quilted Christmas Stockings are easy to make and fun to quilt!
Start by grabbing your fabric, stocking pattern, chalk pencil, basting spray, backing fabric (one for the back of the quilting, one for the lining of the stocking), ribbon for hanging, and of course your Fairfield Batting.
Baste your layers – the batting between a layer of red fabric and a layer of backing fabric (I used muslin).
Trace the stocking on the fabric. Flip the template and trace again, a mirror image.
Quilt both sides of the stocking – but make sure to go beyond the lines.
Cut out the stockings, and cut two lining pieces.
Stitch the top of a lining piece to the top of a quilted piece. Repeat with the other set.
Lay the layers on top of each other, right sides together as shown in the above image, then stitch all the way around, leaving a 4″ hole for turning.
Turn right side out through the hole, stitch the hole closed, and tuck the lining into the socking.
Stitch on a loop of ribbon to hang.
Now make more for the whole family!
