PDF pattern based on my design. If you print it at 100% you'll end up with a stocking that's around 47cm from the top to the heel and 40cm from heel to toe.
I'm going to make one of Tania's Voucher Wraps (but slightly smaller - mine will measure 6" by 11" unfolded) with some of the leftovers.
download the pattern (please only use it for your own personal purposes - don't reproduce it/sell them). Some of the great looking examples here might provide additional inspiration for fabric choices. There are written instructions in the pattern download, but if you're after visuals as well here goes:
What you'll need:
Main fabric & calico/lining (115cm wide)
70cm of each
(180cm will do 3 stockings)
Cuff fabric (115cm wide)
Ribbon/webbing (~2.5 cm wide)
Iron on interfacing (light-medium weight)
20cm (if 115cm wide this should do two stockings)
What to cut:
2x Stocking shape from main fabric (add 1cm seam allowance all round)
2x Stocking shape from calico (add 1cm seam allowance all round)
2x 18cm x 56cm rectangles from cuff fabric
1x 18cm x 56cm rectangle from interfacing
1. With right sides facing, stitch front and back stocking pieces together using a 1cm seam allowance, back-stitching a few stitches at the start and end of the seam, and leaving the top open. If you like, then zig zag/overlock the edges (I have used a straight stitch to neaten the top of the stocking, but as the whole lot is going to be lined I haven’t worried about the rest of the edges).
3. Clip seam allowance to curves.
4. Turn the main fabric stocking through the right way, and press.
5. Insert the calico stocking inside the main fabric one, matching seams and top.
7. With right sides, facing stitch the cuff pieces together along one long edge (this becomes the lower edge).
11. Insert cuff inside the top of the stocking, matching the back seam on the cuff with that on the stocking, and ensuring that the non-interfaced side of the cuff is facing the stocking lining (ie. When turned over this will be on the outside).
12. Fold the ribbon/webbing in half, and pin between the stocking and the lining, so that the fold matches the edges of the fabric and the remainder of the ribbon/webbing hangs inside the stocking.
14. Fold up the cuff so that it lies flat, then topstitch the seam allowance to the stocking.
15. Turn the cuff down.
