I just took up quilting after sewing for 40+ years. Decided to make these stockings for the kids. I did some creative stitching as suggested in the tutorial and I have to say that I think it looks quite fetching. I used an old flannel shirt for the lining because I like to repurpose whatever I have laying around before buying new. I would have rather used this beautiful satin fabric I have in both gold and red for the lining but that doesn't meet the criteria. Supplies used were 6 different cotton quilting fabrics, the flannel for the lining, some cotton batting, thread, needles, scissors, my trusty Kenmore, time, patience, coffee and quiet.
Holly, could you post another picture showing your beautiful stocking with something inside it? It's the last listed requirement. It sounds from certifier chatter that if you have that photo it's likely to be approved.
My son's girlfriend needed a Christmas Stocking. It is our tradition to have peoples' names on them, but her name is 8 wide letters long. There was *no* way it would fit across the top as commonly done. I got the idea of doing it vertically down one side using quilted on letters. That was the time-consuming part!!!
The red lining is upcycled flannel sheet from the part that folds under. The white fabric I used as the quilt padding was a chunk of a used flannel blanket.
Here are the pieces as I'm starting to sew them on. Some of them I had to cut as I went...
The inside view was tricky to photograph:
Here it is hanging up with some sample objects inside:
I used more scraps of the flannel blanket to make the edging around the stocking and the tie for hanging it from.
