I made us a set of matching stockings! Yes, we all had stockings already, but I wanted them to match :-)
I bought the red felt for $2.25 and the white fleece for about $2.00 at Hobby Lobby. I had the ribbon, black fabric, and, of course, the thread.
To make these:
I traced an old stocking onto the red felt. I did the front 4 times and the back 4 times. Yes, this was necessary because the felt is glittered on one side.
I cut 8 rectangles from the fleece, 9" x 6".
Then I hemmed them along the bottom edge with a 1/2" hem.
Note: Fleece is stretchy = ANNOYING.
I ironed interfacing to the black fabric before tracing and cutting letters from it. By the way, I just enlarged capital letters in a Word document and printed it so I would have letter forms to go by. I sewed the black letters to the white fleece.
I aligned the white fleece at the top of each stocking, right sides facing. I stitched across the top only. Then I flipped the white fleece over the top of each stocking, making a nice finished edge.
Then I stopped taking pictures. Oops!
Then I cut 4 pieces of ribbon, folded them, and stitched them to the top right of the stocking fronts.
Then I aligned the stocking fronts and backs, right sides facing. I pinned them and stitched around the edges. I tried my best to align the bottom of the white fleece pieces, but they didn't turn out perfect. No biggie.
Finally, I turned the stockings right side out and, Viola! 4 crisp, clean, simple red and white stockings, with "monograms" for each person in our family!
