Patchwork Christmas Stocking

Date Posted:15 November 2022 

Christmas is coming up and no doubt you will want to start decorating your houses as soon as possible! These stockings are great scrap-busters to use up any long strips of fabric you may have sitting around. I am using just a simple cotton fabric in the same colour scheme, but feel free to use whatever colours you like!

What you'll need:

  • Christmas Stocking Pattern
  • Sewing machine
  • Rasant thread (In your colour choice)
  • 10 Strips of fabric (approx 4” x 20”)
  • Lining fabric
  • Cuff fabric (faux fur or velvet)
  • Sewing scissors
  • Rotary cutter and cutting mat
  • Iron and wool pressing mat
  • Echidna clips or pins
  • Purple Thang
  • Frixion pen or chalk
  • Medium Iron-on Stabilizer - 5" square piece

Step Overview

The steps below are just an overview of the project instructions and must be used in conjunction with the tutorial video. Print these steps out to have beside you when watching the video as a reminder.

  1. Download and assemble the pattern.
  2. Cut 10 rectangles from your strips of fabric, that are 3” x 16”.
  3. Cut out your cuff fabric according to the pattern.
  4. Cut out your lining fabric according to the pattern.
  5. Arrange your rectangle in two sets of 5, in any order you like.
  6. Starting with two adjacent pieces, align right sides together.
  7. Pin or clip the long edge to secure.
  8. Stitch with a ½” seam allowance and a straight stitch.
  9. Press seams open with your iron.
  10. Repeat steps 6-9 with all of your remaining rectangles, then for your second set of 5.
  11. You should now have two squares of 5 rectangles
  12. Now you can cut out your stocking pieces, making sure you mirror them.
  13. Open up and press seams flat.
  14. Take the two off cuts from the patchwork pieces and sew them together with a ½” seam allowance and a straight stitch. Press seam open. This will make a small piece of patchwork.
  15. Cut your tab piece from the little patchwork piece.
  16. Fold your tab piece in half widthways wrong sides together, and press with your iron.
  17. Unfold and fold in each side again to meet the middle fold just made. Press with your iron.
  18. Refold the tab piece in half and press with your iron. You should now have a long skinny, raw-edges-enclosed tab piece.
  19. Top stitch the edges of the tab pieces with a 3mm straight stitch.
  20. Take one main body stocking and align it with the short side of one of the cuff pieces, right sides together. Pin or clip top edge to secure.
  21. Stitch with a ½” seam allowance and a straight stitch.
  22. Stitch together both sides and bottom edge, with a ⅛” seam allowance.
  23. Press the seam open with your iron.
  24. Repeat step 18-21 with your other main stocking and cuff piece.
  25. With one of your stocking and cuff pieces facing right side up, align one lining piece right side down, along the other edge of the cuff. Be aware of placement, when you open the lining out, the entire shape should look like a C.
  26. Pin or clip to secure and stitch with a ½” seam allowance and a straight stitch
  27. Press seams open
  28. Fold your tab piece in half and align the raw edge about 2” in from the side, along the raw edge of your second cuff piece (not the one you've just sewn) pin to secure.
  29. Now repeat steps 23-25 with this stocking/cuff piece and the lining.
  30. With right sides together, align the stocking pieces together, making sure the lining is facing the lining and vice versa with the main fabric. Pin or clip to secure.
  31. Mark a 4” gap at the bottom of the lining, leave this open when you stitch the pieces together.
  32. Stitch the entire piece shut with a ½” seam allowance and a straight stitch.
  33. Clip triangle notches in each of the curves to reduce bulk.
  34. Turn stocking right side out and push our curves with your purple thang
  35. Tuck turning hole in and pin to secure.
  36. Stitch turning hole shut with a straight stitch.
  37. Press all seams flat with your iron.
  38. Tuck lining into the main stocking, including half of the stocking cuff. Make sure it is all sitting flat.
  39. Fold down the cuff towards the outside of the stocking, your tab piece should now be sticking out.
  40. All done!
