STEPS TO MAKE A FLANNEL AND FAUX FUR CHRISTMAS STOCKING

  • 1 yard 1/2″-3/4″ wide linen or twill ribbon (each stocking required 8″). 
  • Sewing machine or serger and necessary sewing supplies.
  • Download the stocking pattern download and assemble them.
  • Cut two stockings (one right and one left) from the faux fur and two (2) from the flannel.
  • When cutting the fabric using small snips to avoid cutting the fur pile.
  • For a complete stocking with the flannel as the main fabric and the fur curved down at the cuff, be sure that the fur's direction is going from bottom to top when you cut the stocking pieces.
  • Stockings with the fur as the main fabric cut the stocking shape with the fur lying from top to bottom. 
  • Set the two lining stocking pieces in front of you.
  • Use the pattern piece to mark the loop located on the right side of one stocking piece. 
  • Cut an 8″ length of ribbon and form a loop. 
  • Pin the loop onto the stocking with raw edges slightly diagonal to the raw edge of the stocking. 
  • Place right sides of the stocking lining together; pin if desired. 
  • Sew, using a 1/4″-3/8″ seam allowance, from the top of the stocking down the front side, around the toe, bottom, and heel. 
  • Continue stitching up the backside of the stocking, leaving a 5-6″ opening for turning the stocking later.
  • You will simultaneously secure the ribbon loop into the seam – it will be sandwiched between the two sides of the stocking. 
  • Connect the leading stocking to the lining. In this example, the lining (the flannel) inside out and the main fabric (the fur in this example) right side out, tuck the main stocking into the lining. 
  • Insert the main stocking into the lining until the top raw edges are even.
  • Line up the back and front seams and pin the stockings together around the top raw edges. Sew together, being sure that the right sides are facing one another.  
  • Pull the right side of the stocking and its lining out through the opening.
  • Sew the opening in the lining closed by hand – the stitching will not be visible on the finished stocking, but you can still use a slip stitch to make it nice and neat.
  • Now, tuck the lining into the exterior of the stocking. Be patient and work the toe and heel of the lining entirely into place, smoothing out any bumps or wrinkles.
