Patchwork and Crochet Make a Sweet Stocking |
Get Creative and Make Your Own Version to Keep or to Give!
This sweet stocking was made for a baby’s first Christmas but we’d love to have one of our own! The crocheted cuff is a beautiful and charming finish for the patchwork stocking.
The stocking, from Betsy Makes, does not come with complete instructions. However, there are enough hints provided to make something similar.
Create patchwork “fabric” to cut the stocking from, layering and quilting it first. The designer made a pattern from a stocking she already had. If you don’t have something on hand or can’t find one you like on the Internet, the pattern used for the following should work well for this project:
Repurpose Old Jeans Into Fun Christmas Stockings
White felt and hand embroidery were used for the heel and toe. If you prefer, you can use the instructions provided in the Old Jeans stocking (link above) for adding a fabric toe and heel and embellishing them with machine embroidery.
The beautiful crocheted cuff was adapted from the following pattern for wrist warmers.
Crocheted Shell Wrist Warmers
Wide crocheted lace from a thrift store or antique shop could also be re-purposed to fit around the top of a stocking.
Be sure to look over the full stocking article to see details of its construction.
If you decide to make one of your own, we hope you’ll write up a tutorial for us to share!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
