Christmas Stocking Tutorial

Stocking pattern.

I began by layering top batting and backing and then free motion quilting the piece.

Then I cut out two boot pieces, making sure there is was a front and back.
Then with right sides together, sew boots together, leaving top open.
Next take your cuff piece (6 1/2" x  8 1/2") and batting (3 1/4" x 8 1/2") layer  covering half of the top. Then fmq the portion that has batting. 

Then trim a fold  in half right sides together and stitch.
Now fold so this piece forms a cuff and pin.
I then stitched the raw edge together a scant 1/4"
Now the cuff (right side facing wrong side of the boot) will need to be stuffed inside the boot ( that has been turned right side out)
Matching raw edges of boot and cuff. matching cuff seam to back seam of boot pin.
Now sew raw edges a fat 1/4" seam.
Trim extra threads and pull cuff out.
Now fold cuff over. Normally I leave about a half inch of cuff on the inside.
Sew ribbon loop to back By machine or hand.
Stocking is finished.
I think if you click on the pattern picture. You can the right click the photo and select print. On your printer preferences choose letter size paper.
