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.

  1. Cute, cute stockings! I need to add stocking making to my to-do list.

  2. Your stocking turned out beautiful!!

    I made stockings for our family years ago but that was before I started quilting. I've been thinking that it might be time for an update. Maybe a project for the new year.

  3. Those stockings are just adorable!

  4. Love the stockings and I reckon they were well worth waiting for!

  5. Love the finish look of the covered buttons. Going to try this. And thank you for the sweet Mini, I considered it a Christmas gift.

  6. Love the stocking. Those buttons are such a neat embellishment.
