My First Christmas Stocking

I have been meaning to make stocking for the
my family for the last couple years.
I was unable to find the
perfect stocking pattern.
I wanted them to be traditional looking
with a sweet cuff,
so I merged several ideas
into one stocking.

This is my first one that I have finished.
The fabric is Evergreen with a touch of 25th and Pine
by Basic Grey for Moda. 
The cuff and lining is  Kona Khaki.
I used 5 strips of Evergreen
from a jelly roll to make one stocking.

I used Aurifil 50 wt. thread to quilt the stocking body
and Aurifil 12 wt. in red to add decorative
straight stitching around the cuff.
For the batting, I used
Thermoweb's Stitch N Sew Fleece.
It has just the right amount of loft for the stocking.

I am personalizing all of our stockings
So no wondering on Christmas day,
whose stocking it belong to.

I also made coordinating buttons,
I just love the finished look
of it and can't wait to
finish more of them.

I love the old time feel to this stocking.

If you haven't already grabbed your
Reindeer Games pattern,
you have a couple more days that it is free. 
You can find it here.

If you decide to make your own stocking
be sure to link it up to
 Nancy Zieman's  Christmas Stocking Sewing Challenge!

A Gift to you: Reindeer Games

As promised,
I finished a little gift for all of you.
It will be free through the
end of November.

It is a super fast quilt to work up,
mine just took a bit longer because
I decided to hand quilt it with
12 wt. Aurifil in red. 
Love how it pops against the white. 

Enjoy all the holidays
that are on the way!


You can pick up
Reindeer Games, here.
