  • Step 1

    Print the pattern, cut out, pin on the fabrics and cut them out. For the foot of the stocking you can use a fabric with nice patterns - but the part your embroidery will be has to be a plain fabric.

    And now it's the time to embroider!
    There are many ways to get the pattern on the fabric. I have my own way. So I print the pattern with an ink-jet printer on interfacing (Vlieseline in German) and iron it on the back of the fabric.
    (please ignrore that on this photo there is already the red foldover sewn to the stocking - that was a mistake and I had to remove it later).

    And this is how your embroidery should look like. At least a bit, depending on the colors you chose.

    You can add a nice ribbon or something like that on the seam between foot and leg of the stocking.

    And now it's time to sew the red foldover.
    You sew the front and the back of the red parts together - so that you get a tube.

    Then fold-in the lower part of the tube, iron it and seam this part with a straight stitch.
    You can decorate it with a zigzag ribbon as I did.

    Then fold-in the upper side, iron it and sew the red part with a straight stitch to your stocking.
