- 1 yard* of Spoonflower’s Fleece (we’re using Vintage Bells by cathleenbronsky)
- 1 fat quarter of Fleece for the cuff (we’re using unprinted Fleece but you could also use a coordinating design)
- A small piece of scrap fabric (to create a strap for hanging the stocking up; we’re using Organic Cotton Sateen, but anything would work)
- Free printable stocking pattern
- Scissors or rotary blade
- Measuring tape
1. Cut out your pattern pieces.
Fold your fabric in half (either right sides or wrong sides together, it doesn’t matter for this step) and cut out your pieces.
Pieces you’ll be cutting out:
- Sock (cut 2)
- Cuff (cut 2)
- Strap (not pictured above; we used a scrap of Organic Cotton Sateen folded over to create a strap for hanging the stocking up, but you can use anything sturdy!)
2. Sew the stocking sock together.
Pin the right sides together and sew the stocking sock pieces together.
3. Create the strap, then topstitch.
Next, we’re going to prep our strap. Take the fabric you cut for your strap, fold it in half lengthwise and iron. Open up your strap and fold in the two long edges to meet at the center crease. Next, fold in half so the raw edges are enclosed and iron.
Topstitch the length of your strap to secure the edge. You should end up with something like the strap below!
4. Sew the cuff pieces together.
Pin both cuff pieces, right sides together, and stitch down the short sides.
5. Pin the strap to the stocking sock.
Now we’re going to pin the strap to the stocking sock and sandwich it between the sock and the cuff. That way, when we flip it inside out, it’ll look clean and all raw edges will be hidden inside the cuff. We recommend pinning your strap on the heel seam of the sock.
6. Pin the cuff.
Pin the cuff to the sock, matching the side seams and covering the strap.
7. Sew in place.
8. Turn your stocking right side out.
Finally, turn your stocking right side out. Here, you can hem the bottom of your cuff, or leave it unhemmed since Spoonflower’s Fleece doesn’t fray (consider it our gift to you!). Now, just make a couple more for your family and friends in case they get jealous.
Holiday complete! Optional: Roasting chestnuts on an open fire.
