Stockings: an instagram tutorial

I posted this mini-tutorial on Instagram and I thought you guys might want to see it here too. If you make any stockings with it, be sure to send me a photo!

Step 1: supplies

  • stocking template (the one I used for this tutorial is from Diary of a Quilter, but I enlarged it when I made them for my family)
  • 2 quilted panels 9.5 by 16
  • 45 inches of single fold bias binding
  • 2 nine-inch pieces of double fold binding
  • 1 hanging loop (I made mine using a 3 x 6 inch piece of fabric folded multiple times and then stitched closed)

Step 2: use the template to mark and cut a front and back for your stocking (be sure to reverse the template for the back)

Step 3: sew the double fold binding to the tops

Step 4: place the front and back wrong sides together and sew with a 1/4 inch seam

Step 5: attach the single fold binding, leaving 2-3 extra inches at the top

Step 6: hand sew the binding down, folding and flipping the extra at the top into the stocking

Step 7: attach the loop (very securely if you tend to overstuff your stockings like I do) and you’re done!
