Patchwork Stocking - Tutorial

Just in time for Christmas projects, patchwork stockings.  These stockings are so cute.  They can be made any size - large or small - to hold a gift card, candy and hang on the mantel.


The stockings are pieced together using the paper piecing method.

Never tried paper piecing? 

No worries - I'll walk you through it and you'll see it's actually quite easy.


First, let's gather our materials:
Rotary cutterCutting matPaper Piecing Paper (or tissue paper)ScissorsChristmas fabric - an assortment of scrapsThreadAdd-a quarter ruler
And -- here is our pattern.



Trace the stocking on your paper. 


The front side of the paper is the SEAM SIDE or SEWING SIDE of the paper. 




The back side of the paper is the FABRIC SIDE, where you will position your fabric, pin in place and then turn the paper over so that you sew down the seam line.





Let's get started!
