  • How to make a Christmas stocking. Elf Stocking By Modkid - Step 1
    Step 1

    Prepare Pattern Pieces:
    • Print all patttern pieces at 100% (no scaling).
    • Cut Pattern Pieces A1 through A4 on the outer solid line
    (including the shaded areas). Overlap the shaded areas as
    indicated on the pattern pieces and tape together to form your
    lower “sock” pattern piece, fig. 1. This will be referred to as
    Pattern Piece A going forward, fig. 2.
    • Cut Pattern Piece B along the outer solid lines only (do NOT
    cut along the diagonal dashed lines).

  • Step 2

    Cut the Fabric Pieces:
    • Pattern Piece A (Sock): (2) of fabric #1, (2) of fusible fleece
    • Pattern Piece B (Cuff): (4) of fabric #2, trace dashed lines onto the
    wrong side of 2 of these pieces only.
    • Hanging Loop (no pattern piece): Cut (1) 1.5"wide x 8"long piece

    Assemble:
    1. Fuse fleece to the wrong side of each Sock (Pattern Piece A). Quilt your Sock as desired. Place each Sock piece, right sides together and pin, aligning all raw edges. Stitch with a 1/2" seam allowance (along the dashed line) all around the Sock, leaving the top open, fig. 3. Pivot at the toe point. Trim the seam allowance down to a 1/4" and clip into all curves. Turn the Sock right side out and use a blunt tool to get the curly toe nice and pointy, fig. 4. Press around all edges.

    Place the two rectangular Cuff (Pattern Piece B) pieces with the
    traced lines, right sides together and stitch along the short sides with
    a 1/2" seam allowance, fig. 5. Do the same with the remaining Cuff
    pieces, fig. 6. Press seams open. Turn the untraced Cuff piece right
    side out. Place inside the traced Cuff piece with right sides together,
    fig. 7, and pin along the raw edges, aligning the side seams. Baste
    1/4" along the bottom raw edge to keep these pieces from shifting.
    You will now be sewing along the lines you traced from the pattern
    piece. Trim off the excess fabric below the stitched lines, leaving
    about a 1/8" seam allowance, fig. 8. Clip into each top peak as
    close as you can without snipping through your stitches and clip
    each bottom point. Turn Cuff right side out and push out each
    point with a blunt tool. Press entire Cuff well. Topstitch 1/8" along
    points.

    Fold the Hanging Loop in the same manner as bias tape. To do
    this, fold the loop in half lengthwise, wrong sides together. Open
    back up and press each raw edge in toward the center using the
    first fold as a guide, fig. 9. Fold entire piece in half encasing the raw
    edges. Topstitch along the open edge 1/8", fig. 10. Fold Hanging
    Loop in half, as show in fig. 11, pin and baste to the inside of the
    sock, aligning raw edges at the back seam.

    Insert Cuff inside the sock with the right side of the Cuff facing
    the wrong side of the sock and the Hanging Loop sandwiched in
    between, fig. 12. Aligning side seams and raw edges at the top,
    pin and stitch with a 1/2" seam allowance all around the opening,
    fig. 13. Trim seam allowance down to 1/4". Turn Cuff over to the
    right side of the sock and slightly press around the opening, fig. 14.
    If desired, hand sew decorative ornamentation to each point of the
    cuff and the toe. We used miniature jingle bells for our stockings.
