September 22—94 Days until Christmas—Stockings to Make

Using that pattern I created for the stockings for Santa, the elves and myself, I’ve made two other stockings.

This pretty lacy one required two fabrics—a solid green and a lacy one cut at the same time.  Using two of those combinations, I stitched them together with both lacy fabrics on the inside, trimmed the seams and turned them inside out.  I stitched a trim of extra lace on the top. 

 Here’s another one, made with strips of patchwork squares.

Using the same pattern as before, I cut my patchwork strips, stitched them right side to right side, trimmed the seams and turned the stocking inside out.  Being a great fan of rick-rack and having time on my hands I added some to the tops. 

Stay tuned for my next post where I’ll show another stocking to make.  This one calls for basic crocheting skills.

Do you have any stocking ideas you’d like to share?
