- 1 FQ in your main fabric: I used prints from the Moda Aspen Frost line
- 1 FQ in your lining fabric: I used muslin
- 1 FQ for the cuff fabrics (1 FQ will be enough for 2 stockings): I used the Icy Tonal White from the same line
- Ribbon for Hanging: I used Velvet in Scarlet Red
- Fusible interfacing for increased durability (optional)
2. Bring the bottom edge of the cuff up so the tube is double thickness and the seam from step 1 is fully enclosed.
3. With RST sew the left and right stocking pieces together leaving the top edge open. Trim your seam making sure to clip into the seam allowance along the inside curve so it will lay well when turned. Turn right side out and press flat.
4. With RST sew the 2 lining pieces together leaving the top edge open and a 3″ gap along the bottom straight edge.
5. Slide the cuff over the stocking with all of the raw edges lined up along the top and the seam in the cuff at the back (heel edge) of the stocking. Cut a loop of ribbon (mine were 7″) and tack down both ends of the ribbon along the back seam. I just held everything else in place as I worked but you can baste along the entire top edge if you’d like.
6. Slide the stocking lining over everything with RST and sew around the entire top edge.
7. Turn the stocking right side out through the gap you left in the lining.
8. Tuck the raw edges of the lining inside and sew the gap shut. I just topstitched with my machine but for an invisible finish you could hand sew it shut.
9. Tuck the lining inside the stocking and press flat
