A few months ago
I showed these felt stockings I made from
These kits are so much fun to make
and are pretty foolproof,
as long as you follow the directions.
This week I made the quilted stockings that I attached
these felt stockings fronts to to make them very sturdy.
This way they can be stuffed with goodies at Christmas.
I make a "quilt" from my fabric and then use either the
felt backing that comes with the kit or the felt stocking front
as a pattern.
I cut the front and back for the stocking from the quilt I made.
A hanging tab is made.
The front and back are stitched together around the outside.
Biased binding is made and stitched onto the front of the stocking
and turned to the back and stitched down.
The tab is stitched to the inside before the binding as added to the top.
This is the completed quilted stocking before the felt front
is stitched to it.
And here are the two completed stockings!
These are very sturdy and can now be filled to the brim with goodies.
Yay! Two gifts finished for Christmas.
