We couldn't do our Christmas Tutorials without making Christmas Stockings and so today, it's all about just that. I have started a bit of a tradition with Christmas presents for all my friends children's first Christmas and I make a stocking with their name on. So if you want to make your own, just follow the instructions below.
You will need: Patterned Fabric for the outside (at least a fat quarter size), Plain fabric for the inside (although you could have patterned fabric inside too), Scissors, Sewing Thread, Ribbon, Pattern piece or an idea of your stocking shape and a Sewing Machine.
The first thing to do is cut out all your fabric pieces. I made a template and then cut out 2 pieces of patterned fabric and 2 pieces of plain fabric to a little larger in size to the pattern piece for some seem allowance.
Below are a few of the other ones I made. As you can see, you can make them all look different, even with the same fabric. Who would you make yours for? I made one for Sammy too last year, so at least Santa knows where to put her presents when he comes! he, he.
As always, if you make anything for our Make it Tutorials, just tweet us or Instagram with #livelovemake. Or put a pic on our Facebook page. We had some great pictures recently of our Cable Cosy, so thanks for those. Always lovely to see what you have made.
